Q & A after screening with Ethan H. Minsker film makers. “Dolls of Lisbon” by Ethan Minsker. (Documentary, 74min) “The Dolls of Lisbon” is New York City’s Antagonist Art Movement’s latest exploit inspired by the Zapatista Dolls of Mexico, a souvenir that travelled the world symbolizing a little known rebellion. The Antagonists take aim at the legacy of Andy Warhol’s over commercialization and commodification of art. Like the Zapatista Movement our Dolls are a symbol of resistance, here to wage war against mass production and to give a voice to those who walk a unique and sometimes arduous path. This film re-examines the notion of the struggling artist, and initiates a cultural exchange among artists from The United States, Ecuador, Portugal, and fellow Antagonist Artists across Europe.
