A New HOPE (2022) hosts a talk by Johannes Grenzfurthner.
We (almost) made it through a pandemic abyss, the Trumpian “fake news” wars, right wing QAnon trollery, and pathos-laden political truthiness. As a provocateur, political artist, and activist, Johannes asks the simple question: What is there still to be done? How can there be subversion in a world that is hellbound on waging war with rationality? Is there still a potential in radical pranks and stunts in a mediaspace that is built on spectacle? What can really be done if you are (to quote a 1970s classic) mad as hell, and you are not going to take this anymore?
