Profanity Pop by José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros

"These wonderfully warped depictions of Disney classics is brought to you by artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros. His upcoming exhibition, 'Profanity Pop,' is described as a 'celebration of creative freedom in our time' –– creative freedom apparently translating to Snow White taking sexy selfies. There's something surprisingly unnerving about watching your childhood BFFs making out, doing drugs and taking pregnancy tests, no matter how much you thought you'd moved on from your Disney roots."

(Priscilla Frank, 01 August 2014, The Huffington Post)

Discussion about culture anticipates and disseminates culture

"The logic of my documentary, Hubbub, centres around discussions that never quite materialised, but which, according to the logic of dialogism, were never far from view. By turning monologues into a cultural/critical dialogue, I aim to make tangible the idea that the utterances of my interview subjects were always in part a response to the utterances that went before and came after. Likewise, the band in the bubble were both conveying their own brand of music culture onwards and outwards via the audiences that gathered, while also responding to reality television and the cult of celebrity."
