Video title: Ad Nauseam, 2020, 1:00
Ad Nauseam was filmed in Barcelona in April 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown. The piece tries to convey the feelings of anxiety, despair and anger at uncertainty, at the same time that it seeks to propose a constructive reflection based on the words of Antonio Gramsci: “Instruct yourselves because we will need all our intelligence, Cheer up, because we will need all our enthusiasm. Get organized, because we will need all our strength ”(L’Ordine Nuovo, 1919).
