Tuez le flic en vous, 2008
Landings Project Space proudly presents Tuez le flic en vous, a collaboration by Ylva Westerlund and Beata Fransson. The exhibition is a revision of Om den värld som vecklar ut sig när A vill ha något av B, shown earlier this year at Konsthall C in Stockholm.
”Tuez le flic en vous” –kill the pig inside – appeared as a slogan on walls all over Paris during the student protests of 1968. This demand was in keeping with Michel Foucault’s writings in Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison. This book is the point of origin for Tuez le flic en vous, which explores a society of surveillance and the policing of its citizens. The operating theater at the University of Uppsala and the forests surrounding the Försvarets Radioanstalt becomes the backdrop for a game with a revolving cast of characters.
