Recording of performance by Felipe Bittencourt featured in the 17th Videobrasil Festival. A rectangular foam panel is fixed to the wall. A circular form cut out of the middle reveals the solidity of the construction underneath the soundproof padding. The performer runs toward the panel, rams his head into the cut‐out hole, and remains there for as long as his physical stamina will allow. The work is an expression of artistic activism and an exercise in scathing institutional criticism, drawing a parallel between the limits of the body and institutional and spatial boundaries.
