The interdisciplinary art practice of new media artists Mendi + Keith Obadike includes video and sound art, music CDs and text-based Internet projects. Exploring the implications of social and cultural systems in relation to blackness and identity, they have investigated sex toys, the commodification of race, and the visualization of untold stories as disappearing hypertext.
Since the mid-1970s, Marcel Odenbach has produced an extensive body of tapes, performances, drawings and installations, and has gained recognition as one of Germany's most important artists working in video. His works engage in a provocative discourse on the construction of self in relation to historical and cultural representation.
Tony Oursler's video and multimedia works take the form of a low-tech, expressionistic theater that is singular in contemporary art. Willfully primitive, often grotesque, and crafted with an ingenious handmade sensibility, his psychodramatic landscapes are fabricated within the ironic vernacular of pop culture. His idiosyncratic fictions are bizarre narrative odysseys through psychosexual delirium and the detritus and artifacts of mass culture.
