Why must the elementary requests of contemporary life involve such increasingly abrasive levels of access? There is fear at every turn. The infrastructure of civilization has created a dependency on flashing lights, words on metal, and intercoms to tell us how to live safely, how to not ‘get hurt’ or interfere. “This is for your own good.”
As an accompaniment to Jesse Hlebo’s March 2013 solo exhibition of the same title at Family in Los Angeles, this booklet contains an article and images from the exhibition.
Gewalt — a German word meaning both “violence” and “authority” or “established power” — is an investigation into the media utilized within contemporary systemic authorities and the subsequent violence that exists.
