Eine MarkContact (excerpt)Music´s PowerLenin (excerpt)

In his early videos, Vilensky, a founding member of the group Chto Delat?, which operates between the realms of political theory, actionism, and art, worked in his early videos with documentary footage, revealing apparently everyday situations in view of the social aspects that inhere within them. Eine Mark shows scenes from a flea market. The voice of a salesmen calling out the price of his wares is subtly manipulated and mixes with the calls of other salespeople to form a polyphonic speaking chorus.
