YOU ARE SEEING THINGS is a triptych of three videos by the Brazilian artist duo Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin De Burca. These three short, narrative works blend fiction and documentary into a form with echoes of the musical genre. Through music, dialogues and dance the artists evoke the complex interconnectedness in Brazilian popular culture.

This spring at the Stedelijk Museum the Brazilian artist duo Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin present YOU ARE SEEING THINGS, a triptych of their videos Faz Que vai / Set To Go (2015), Estás Vendo Coisas / You Are Seeing Things (2016) and Terremoto Santo / Holy Tremor (2017). These three short, narrative works blend fiction and documentary into a form with echoes of the musical genre. Through music, dialogues and dance the artists evoke the complex interconnectedness in Brazilian popular culture of class, gender, race, religion and the economy.
