Authoritarian Idol 2012
- Presentation artists
Maxx Klaxon’s AUTHORITARIAN IDOL 2012 is a multimedia mashup of pop, politics, and performance art, remixing the words and images of presidential candidates and exploring the collision of democracy and media spectacle.
AUTHORITARIAN IDOL 2012 combines thematically attuned electropop songs with interactive video interrogations of the candidates’ digital avatars. The result is a darkly hilarious satire of an infotainment-driven electoral process.
