Prosperity as you've never seen (2018)

Web-based

A propaganda video was produced by the US National Security Council for the Singapore Summit that took place on June 12. This video emulates a Hollywood-style movie trailer, starring Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, and it was produced with the intention of persuading the North Korean leader. One of the recurrent elements present in the video is a vision of prosperity, from a techno-optimistic western perspective.

"Prosperity as you've never seen" is an artistic research project in which this propaganda video made out of numerous stock footage clips is being deconstructed.
