The GOSPEL ON BROWN BAGS

In this cycle, the Gospel is presented in altogether ten pieces. They are given a title and a subtitle each, the latter referring to the Bush presidency. The choice of brown paper bags as surface evokes the cheapness, the ‘disposability’ of events, stories, narratives and spin.
