Eduardo Cachucho’s Masters Research project at the Dutch Art Institute has been focused on the use of language and propaganda during apartheid, connected to H. Verwoerd’s psychological experiments before his entry into politics. Specifically: ‘On the Experimental Production of Emotions’ where he attempts to artificially generate emotional responses in test subjects through the carefully coordinated use of image and sound, achieving to produce what he describes in his abstract: “compassion, shame and embarrassment, malicious joy, anger and vexation.”
