Boys Boys Boys (2018)

The 2018 Italian general election for a new national government is due to be held on March 4th.

Luca Santese and Marco P. Valli thoroughly followed the electoral campaign, covering various related events, from rally speeches, politicians’ meetings with all kinds of lobbyists to open events for the so-called “civil society”.

Following this electoral campaign meant a daily exposure to the propaganda madness from which seems impossible to get out unscathed. This appeals to both the politicians and the voters, downgraded from the leading role of the democratic process to mere consumers of the political entertainment.

Boys Boys Boys reflects the authors’ need to dismiss themselves from this propaganda miasma, like a sort of exorcism, an abreaction. Through this caricatural mirror Santese and Valli decided to reciprocate the political protagonists for all that as human beings, cut-price reporters and voters, have been forced to endure in the last two months.
