SYNOPSIS
The work isn't a video but an infinite repeating of a PowerPoint presentation, which became a way of presenting knowledge in the academic and commercial world. The author rethought or rather hacked this presentation format with a linear narrative structure and textual sequence which is a part of hegemony of institutional knowledge. She cancelled linearity with a demand repeat, which makes the lecture infinite. Ideological content was annulled with usage of basic matrix of the programme. The artist searched for reference in works by conceptual artists who used concrete poetry to annul hegemony of meanings. The work can be placed in the genre of software art. Visually it relates to tradition of supremacist painting and op-art. Silent lectures are compound of two parts: The most beautiful poems and Close your eyes and watch.
