Crisis, video, 2017
This video employs a familiar video clip from the film Downfall, which has risen to full meme status. In it's simplest form the meme, commonly titled 'Hitler reacts to...' or 'Hitler finds out...', depicts Hitler learning of some bad news, getting upset, and ultimately having somewhat of a sobering conclusion. In this video, I somewhat uncomfortably take the role of Hitler, as I learn of yet another failed job application. I satirically lament the struggles of the straight white male artist in the academic job market, which draws eery parallels to some of Hitlers own flawed ideologies.
