Part history lesson, part political campaign, Lecture Apathy is a lecture performance that studies a 20th Century history of dissent/disobedience and subversion and identifies the 1990’s as the moment where the more overt and polar version of dissent (sticking your fingers up to authority) becomes outmoded or antiquated, which in turn leads to the suggestion of apathy as political aggressor/voice. The scripted performance is backed-up with fast-paced slides showing these moments of dissent leading to images of apathy and protest apathy. The performance becomes more apathetic as it continues towards an apolitical stance.
