the milgram re-enactment

'It's Simply Shocking' The Observer

In 1961 at Yale University one of the most famous experiments in the history of psychology shocked the world and became part of modern folklore. A volunteer was instructed to administer a series of increasingly severe electric shocks to an unseen pupil. Two-thirds of the volunteers were fully obedient, continually administering the maximum 450-volt shocks, even after the pupils' screams were replaced by an ominous silence. Recreating the language and look of the original, UK conceptual artist Rod Dickinson's The Milgram Re-enactment powerfully simulates the drama of the experiment and the troubling questions that it raises about the nature of humanity. Followed by Q&A with Rod Dickerson.
