Backbench (2010) is a large-scale multi-channel video and architectural installation, which reflects on the conditions of art production and consumption that are established within the globalised system of art biennials. Moreover the work focuses on the production of cultural discourses and the consequent impact generated by these prevalent modes of exchange, on social, political, professional and likewise on individual levels. Backbench was commissioned and produced by Manifesta 8, the Region of Murcia, Spain in 2010.
