A scientific looking glass box, containing HIV-infected mosquitoes is smashed at an art festival in Slovenia. The exhibition and surrounding area is evacuated, and the fear of infection among the local population is alarming.

The video Mosquitobox, is the documentation of this episode which took place in Slovenia in 2003.

It is a work about fear, and human’s lack of knowledge concerning one of the world largest and most widely recognized epidemic.

The work brought the subject of HIV to the front page of the news, and in this way, back into peoples mind.
