Newsflash is a clash
Newsflash flirts with posing/pausing and mortality, faux-fashion and terrorist chic.

The artists respond with humour and pathos to media manipulation in relation to War and Terrorism while attempting to make a personal sign of protest. In their series of tableaux, the duo also refers to Activism and Celebrity.

Behind their seemingly desperate satire and selfmocking attitude lurks a critique of violence and demagogy.
