virtual biopolitical agora
DemoKino is an anti-entertainment interactive movie that develops according to your vote; a virtual parliament that through topical film parables provides the voters (participants) with the opportunity to decide on issues that are, paradoxically, becoming the essence of modern politics: the questions of life.
The project questions not only the utopia of contemporary virtual forum that is supposed to open ways for a more direct and influential participation but also points out a much deeper problem of modern democracy (virtual as well).
With its reduced narrativeness - the story is built on the "pro and contra" inner dialogues of the protagonist who is led around his home in a parliamentary kind of way by the "voters", based on their decisions - Demokino shows how these ethical dilemmas of modern life suddenly become the core of our political participation.
Developed by Aksioma Institute for Contemporary Arts, a cultural instiution exploring social, political, aesthetic and ethical concerns through artistic production using new technologies.
