b. 1966, Cyprus
The desperate effort being made by some powers to project themselves as people’s liberators as well as specialists in matters of democracy, or the obsession of banks and other commercial enterprises to persuade us of their generous offers and sacrifices for the sake of the consumer are two examples (among others) explored in this project. I am interested in how all of these are promoted and how people understand, accept and adopt them. I collect announcements, promises and plans that purport to contribute to the betterment of the quality of life and society, or which claims to help secure a (false) sense of freedom.
