From the work, ’King & Queen.’  King includes Jackson’s hits from the album Thriller, like “Thriller,” (5’56’’) and “Wanna be Startin’ Somethin’,” (6’05’’).  Breitz examines the status of pop stars in works ’Queen’ (A Portrait of Madonna), ’King’ (A Portrait of Michael Jackson) and ’Legend’ (A Portrait of Bob Marley).  In these works, Breitz gathered (16) fans by posting advertisements in newspapers and fan websites and then they were asked to sing their way through a key album.  Shot in screen-test mode and presented as a choral grid over a wall of tv screens, these installations are both compelling and toe-curlingly difficult to watch, affectionate glimpses into the power structures inherent in mass media and its passionate consumers.

Shot at UFO Sound Studios, Berlin, Germany, July 2005
16-Channel Installation: 16 Hard Drives
