There’s a lot to discuss about politics but what bothered us the most was the unbelievable amount of political advertisement that floods Austria every time before elections. We decided to create an infoanimation about political ads and to start a satirical campaigning action in Linz, AT. As the leader of the newly founded party DERP (“Die einzig richtige Party” – translation: the one and only party) I told people on the street about our manifesto: yearly elections to increase the amount of political ads even more. We also gave out campaign goodies: a bag full of dirt. Despite the silliness of the idea and my very sarcastic statements an incredible amount of people took us seriously.
I worked on the animation with Julian Moser.
