THEOREM superimposes ‘live’ English subtitles from Pasolini’s politically charged film Teorema [1968], onto the police photograph of Pasolini’s corpse taken at the scene of his murder. The utopic and revolutionary ideas set forth by Pasolini in Teorema are mined in the absurdist hope that in the ‘floating’ and dislodged English subtitle text we might provide an explaination for his untimely and tragic political assassination.
