His works synthesize the content of his researches and formalization strategies, calling us to examine the structures of power involved in the production of history. In audiovisual pieces, objects and critical texts, Lauriano shows how violent relations maintained between the institutions of power and State control – such as the police, prisons, embassies, borders – and subjects shape the subjective processes of society. Thus, his production seeks to bring to the surface historical traumas relegated to the past, to confined files, proposing in alternative to collectively revise and rework history.
