EMMA – Espoo museum of Modern Art Exhibition: Adel Abidin: Michael, 2015, video still

Michael (2015) is a sarcastic portrayal of our time that obsessively worships money and fame. Pop-stars are put on pedestals and followed like prophets. In Abidin's video Michael is being interviewed after his resurrection and fans are gathered to Time Square to hear his words. The pop icon answers all questions with lyrics from his songs.
