What's up

Opening Friday for a month at Zwirner is Stan Douglas' one hour, six channel film setting Conrad's Secret Agent to the sectarian violence in the period between the Portuguese Carnation Revolution and the ratification of their new constitution.

Someone uploaded Douglas' Monodramas, which "interrupted the usual flow of advertising and entertainment when broadcast nightly in British Columbia for three weeks in 1992... When the videos were aired unannounced during commercial breaks, viewers called the station to inquire about what was being sold.."
