Short film, 7:08
In 1968, Andy Warhol wrote the following in the catalogue for an exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” The desire for fame seems to be overwhelming more and more people today; this phenomenon has largely increased with the rise of social networks, reality TV shows, the multiplication of screens, and in general all the predominantly digital strategies put in place by today’s “society of spectacle”. The Dungeon video is a response to young people’s desire and aspiration for becoming influencers, fed by social media. Indeed, almost anyone can indulge in some form of fame today. But what kind of fame is it? What is it good for? And what are the consequences? Dungeon is a short, animated movie made from physical image material through reproducing prints found in magazines, books, and posters.
