hito steyerl ‘s quite monumental video installation hell “yeah fuck we die” (2016), commissioned for the 32nd bienal de sao paulo, resembles a parkour training module –a sport dedicated to overcoming obstacles- and features synchronized videos, whose images were collected from various online sources. in these videos, robots are provoked and scourged in different ways in product quality-testing environments. based on the five most common words used in english-language song titles from the current decade (hell, yeah, we, fuck and die), steyerl draws attention to a kind of anthem for our time, accompanied by a soundtrack, composed by german dj kassem mosse using these words. #bienaldesaopaulo @hito_steyerl #kassemmosse
