III. Mind Takeover

Mind Takeover explores the blurry boundary between obsession and spiritual possession. When another person overwhelms your thoughts, it can feel like they have taken over your mind.

Featuring Hsu Che-yu, Rabbit 314 (2020); Sriwhana Spong, a hook but no fish (2017-2018); The Nest Collective, To Catch a Dream (2015); Mako Idemitsu, Hideo, It’s Me, Mama (1983); Maïder Fortuné and Annie MacDonell, Communicating Vessels (2020).

Mind Takeover is the third chapter of the online program Takeover curated by Julian Ross for e-flux Video & Film, and unfolding in six chapters between September 22 and December 15, 2022, with the films and videos of each chapter streaming for two weeks.
