Repetition

Artistic project : Repetition

Repetition, realized in Warsaw, is a documentary recording of a re-enactment of the Stanford Prison Experiment – a famous 1971 psychological experiment studying human behaviour under prison conditions, conducted by Professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University in California. The purpose of the experiment, which consisted in isolating a group of volunteers playing roles of inmates and guards, was to analyse two issues. First, the patterns determining how people behave in a new situation. Second, the different perceptions of a given situation by people of the same background but forced to play different roles (here inmates and guards). Seven “prisoners” and nine “guards” were selected through a procedure involving psychological testing and examination, aimed at eliminating mentally unsuited candidates.
