Electoral Guerrilla Theatre: Radical Ridicule and Social Movements
Routledge Press, 2005.
Across the globe, in liberal democracies where the right to vote is framed as both civil right and civic duty, disillusioned creative activists run for public office on sarcastic, ironic and iconoclastic platforms. “Electoral Guerilla Theatre” explores the recent phenomenon of the satirical election campaign. Drawing on extensive archival and ethnographic research, Larry Bogad examines satirical campaigns around the world, placing his analysis in national, cultural, political and legal contexts. “Electoral Guerrilla Theatre” will offer an entertaining, enlightening and informative read for those working across a variety of disciplines, including performance studies, social science, cultural studies and politics.
