You can’t kill a feeling deep inside of you. It’s more about trying to make a chord out of your life with that frequency as a base.

I’m attracted to the suggestion of violence. I’m not interested in making videos or pictures that depict or celebrate violence happening. I’m more interested in what an individual does once it’s happened. Whether you repeat the violence to somebody else or look it in the eye and acknowledge the sadness and hurt it causes and transmute it into something else. Visually, I’m attracted to that and I don’t mind if it might be misunderstood as a celebration of violence, that doesn’t bother me. It’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Tania Bruguera does Endgame

“This version is a portrait of power and the complexity of dependency,” she says. “It’s a story of how one person can intervene in someone else’s mind. Maybe I see the piece as a revenge against totalitarian dictators – the person who is in power only has power as long as the person serving decides to serve. The domestic ambience of the piece becomes a metaphor for how easily we are trapped in these dynamics.”
