Flag of the Revolution

Flag of the Revolution was produced in February 2007 in collaboration with Lila Fischer. The Flag of the Revolution was conceived by the artists to reflect their belief that the traditional rhetoric around political revolutions of all natures, so often attached to teleologies with various, shifting utopic endpoints and concerned with progress and time as a line, are laughably inept. Flag of the Revolution reflects an understanding of Revolution that returns to the most literal definition of that word: the revolution of one body around another in space. The exertion of force, inertia, gravity and magnetism at work in cyclical motion seem to bear more resemblance, to the artists, to the actual course of human history, than the more linear models employed by contemporary politicians, whig histories,  and the liberal media.
