Upcoming Events
 Rapture and Rage. Studies in the authoritarian character. (Video)

(photographed by Jörg Baumann)

Go join the authoritarian rebellion! National rebirth instead of queer decadence! Heroic deeds instead of lazy scum! In Europe, political parties propagating fascist forms of government are gaining ground everywhere or, as in Hungary and Austria, already in power. Why is the promise of democratic societies losing its appeal? Why authoritarian leadership seems to appear as a solution? Which desire is connected to fascism?

Together with the Bulgarian artists Stephan Shtereff and Emilian Gatsov LIGNA investigates where the attraction of fascism comes from. By allowing the audience themselves to conquer the stage and become central protagonists of the event, the performance reenacts forgotten historical constellations, explores group movements and poses the question of agency .

After the performance an artist talk will take place.
