A lampoon against the poverty caused by the capitalism of democratic institutions, not least that of city kids from poor backgrounds. Repeating a protest slogan like a mantra, Kantor builds a formal lexicon combining layered graphics, 3D animation, performance, and text, and plays with the hypnotic effects of text transposed onto image.

Further information

“Being an artist and a single father of three small children in Toronto in the 90s definitely meant a close relationship with poverty. Getting closer to the facts that were the cause of our misery, I felt obligated to fight back, expose political issues and social conditions to save my friends and family.” - Istvan Kantor
