Unsolved Mysteries

The international museum federation 'L'internationale' launched the 'Artists in Quarantine' project, in their own words to 'reflect on the subversive power of domestic spaces, in a world in which windows and balconies take on a new role in public life'.
One of the works in this project is a film by Zenyo Pekünlü 'about the perception of who is deemed ‘responsible’ for the virus in media and conspiracy theories. The piece has a telling title: '...but it's never capitalism’.'
