Description

SOCIETY THEATER (2015) is a stop-motion film where different social sytsems are built up and broken down again. The content is inspired by Lorenzetti’s frescoes called 'Allegory of Good and Bad Government'. At the time when there was unrest and where successive governments came to power and were overthrown again, Lorenzetti created the frescoes for Siena's town hall to remind the politicians about the effect of the corrupt, tyrannical leadership as a contrast to the honorable and decent. Arrhenius' pictograms once again play roles and the artist appears as a theater director.
