Antek Walczak from "Bernadette Corporation" (USA) presents a new video on the anti-globalization demonstrations in Geneva. Stephan Dillemuth (artist and author of "The Academy and the Corporate Public", D) asks if artistic research can function as an alternative form of criticism beyond conventional strategies of representation.
