The video works of Antek Walczak grew out of his participation in the art/fashion collective Bernadette Corporation and the late '90s downtown New York scene. On hiatus from the collective's video productions, Walczak produced a separate but parallel body of media work. In these provocative videos, Walczak speculates on the relationships between fashion, capitalism, globalization and the many other surfaces on which commercial images grow.

At EAI, Walczak screened two of these works: Dynasty (1998, 49:52 min), and Run With Zeros (1999, 9 min). The artist then appeared in conversation with EAI's Josh Kline.
