About this work
#DeleteTheBeans is an online lecture performance, premiered on Twitch.tv for SlipStream, in support of raising funds for Refugee Solidarity Week. The artist used a multi-webcam setup to capture his reading of an essay about existentialism, the philosophical bias of the Western canon regarding art and ideas, and the linguistic blunders that he has experienced as a child of immigrants. The talk is delivered in a way to reflect the schizoid nature of online cultural producers and fits the style of a YouTube/Zoom interaction, which is inspired by the proliferation of talking-head content and conspiracy theories online in recent times.
Made with the support of the Artangel initiative Thinking Time.
