PERFORMATIVE TALK, SHORT PROSE,
ACCOMPANIED BY ILLUSTRATIONS
What kind of contact takes place between me and the politicians? Is guilt a democratic feeling because it can be seen as imagined others speaking to me? How do I deal with the news?
Democratic entities work very differently depending on whether they contain hundreds, millions or millions of people. This work plays with fantasies and figures of thought we entertain thinking about our democracies.
I develop short descriptions on how we experience our democracies in everyday life – and on which figures of thought we might employ to make sense of them.
