The series White on White started in the same year as Obama´s presidency. What appeared as arbitrary in the first place, retrospectively turns out to be a kind of intellectual necessity: as the attempt to theatricalize white* subjectivity from a white* perspective was somehow only dialectical with the backdrop of the world´s most powerful president being non-white*. Ever since November last year our duo is thus thrown into an aesthetical crisis, given white* subjects, that - whist riding the wave of the recent whitelash – are staging their power position without any filters or even critical ambition… Time for sealing the series and trying for a reconfiguration. White on White – #FUCKME ! (we didn´t make it) is the promise of the gesture that comes with that.
