Jonas Mekas: The Internet Saga Exhibition at Burger King

Mekas is a Lithuanian video artist who chose to exhibit in the only Burger King in Venice.

His videos are played via screens that typically show Burger King advertisements. These videos are footage that Mekas has been uploading on the internet since 2007. These videos are a combination of private intimate home videos and famous moments like John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s bed peace. This comments on the lines between private and public life being blurred.
