Machete Group: Unsearchable


Machete Group member Avi Alpert, along with artists Mashinka Firunts and Daniel Snelson, unpacked the word “unsearchable” through a performance that adopted the formal and linguistic tropes of an academic panel discussion. The three performers humorously staged formal presentations, erudite conversations, and rhetorical questions posed to the audience, intercut with videos depicting prerecorded interviews with the performers, Internet searches, and clips from film noir.
