Virtual Biopolitical Agora
An Anti-entertainment interactive movie,
that develops according to your vote!
A Project by Janez Janša
is a virtual parliament that through topical film parables provides
the voters (participants) with the opportunity to decide on
issues that are, paradoxically, becoming the essence of modern
politics: the questions of life.
The project questions not only the utopia of contemporary virtual
forum that is supposed to open ways for a more direct and influential
participation but also points out a much deeper problem of modern
democracy (virtual as well).
With its reduced narrativeness - the story is built on the "pro
and contra" inner dialogues of the protagonist who is led
around his home in a parliamentary kind of way by the "voters",
based on their decisions - Demokino shows how these ethical
dilemmas of modern life suddenly become the core of our political
When the issue of life enters the political arena and modern
politics becomes biopolitics the democratic decision reaches
an impasse: in the political arena laws are being debated on
issues that can actually tolerate no decisions and any kind
of majority rule is problematic in itself, any political regulation
a publicly legitimated act of violence.
Demokino is a virtual parliament that clearly displays how politics
comes before law. Law is just a utopic and redundant technical
procedure to cover the political essence.
