"Est-ethics of Counter-Documentary After 1989"
Curator - Joanne Richardson

Documentary codes have aspired to achieve the effect of truth by effacing their own construction. East European video production during the past decade has sought to intervene in official representations--both those of soviet newsreel and new mass media images-by using counter-documentary strategies: "hijacking" and displacing images in incongruous contexts, creating alternative "private" histories, forestalling identification through distantiation, questioning the process of framing by emphasizing the gaps and borders around the constructed image, and over identifying with the language of politics and mass media, thereby making apparent what it usually has to suppress to function unquestioned.
