Screening of "Mocracy - Neverland in Me" by Christian von Borries

During the preview of the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia (29 - 30 May 2013), the self-censored version for Kazakhstan of the film "Mocracy - Neverland in Me" (2012) will be screened as a European premiere and followed by a discussion with the director Christian von Borries.
Since the 1980s, this world has been characterized by four developments: the growth of political democracy, the growth of Online Democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy. Mocracy examines consumerism, capitalism, oppression, misery rule and the help industry. People become a mass ornament, architecture a tuning tool for societies, self optimizing in file. Charity is the other side of democracy, while democracy appeares as a lifestyle option for the rich.
Michael Jackson is the soundtrack of the neoliberal 80s, a choreography of democracy. The film itself is imitating democracy in a nutshell, representing a failing polyphonie. In this sense, Mocracy is a musical journey through Kasachstan, Kosovo, Pyonyong, Detroit, Moscow and Berlin, a neverland, the utopia of a non-place. Thus, the film clip serves as a disappropriation of the individual torso.
