"RULE THE WORLD"
Adornments to live out your Deficiencies

All things considered, despots are a pretty diverse group. They’re not satisfied with just being loved, no, they want to be loved sincerely. If all else fails, they’ll force you.


What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? Or are they in charge because they have the necessary tools?

What type of gifts does the despot bestow upon himself? How does he indulge? What gifts can I bestow upon them so that they are assured of my eternal love and devotion?


These are some of the questions dealt with in RULE THE WORLD, a juried exhibition at Friends of Carlotta in Zuerich, Switzerland, curated by Bruna Hauert.


Welcome to our world of lived-out deficiencies and psychopaths!

Good to see artists addressing this human and difficult subject. It's easy to shy away from themes like this, especially if you have been a victim of one.

Really enjoyed that, very serious and humorous at the same time.
