color, 5’04”

Our society, dazed by the idea of evolution and progress, often leads to resentment and extreme actions that are directly proportionate to the ambition to succeed.

Death Brokering is a video documentation of a series of urban actions that took place in New York City by Francesco Di Tillo. Funeral posters have been specifically designed and displayed in many advertising places frequented by New York life.
The posters concern the death of financial brokers of Wall Street protagonists at various levels of the global economic processes, that, involved directly or indirectly by the economic and social crise of our days, committed suicide.

Death Brokering tells poetically through the use of material that actually exists, the story of people who paid with their lives pathways activated by themselves.
