Con-Dom - We Who Were Living ... DVD 25974
Super 8 short films and experimental movies of Mike Dando/CON-DOM, who has operated in the multimedia domains incorporating sound, film and performance since his early years. Dando confronts the audience in extreme ways, touching on taboo subjects suppressed or reduced to primitive stereotypes by the mass media of today. With a devastating barrage of noise he traces the unconscious religious subtext of modern mass society, cross-fades religious and political (border) phenomena and relates them with violent and pathological aspects. In the six short films, created in the 1980s to early 1990s and finally digitally restored in 2013, daily routine scenes are juxtaposed with grainy photos of criminals, dictators and clerics and book pages bearing crude, racist interpretations of Scripture, filmed line by line. Edition of 222 copies only.
