‘This Article is Not Available in Your Country’



For non-US citizens, the ‘This video is not available in your country’ message that rears its ugly head on video sites like Hulu is a source of perennial frustration.

Paul Mutant, an artist based in the UK city of Brighton, dedicated a painting to this strict restriction, perhaps taking his cue from René Magritte’s iconic ‘This is not a pipe’ painting on the powers of representation.

Mutant’s work pokes fun at the absurdity that some of these restrictions tend to be steeped in—if the internet has smoothened the world to become a truly global platform, then why these blockages? And if video can be blocked, could painting or any of the fine arts be as well?
