About

Political Truths

 

Justice, liberty and objective truth are still powerful illusions in a stagnant political climate where democracy no longer offers us with grand visions of the future. Our individual autonomy is secured and validated through shopping and voting, politics has become indistinguishable from consumerist culture. Where political candidates pursue voters, in an exact similar fashion to the way in which advertisers pursue customers. This deliberate set up of society filters and dictates people into either adopting the role of producer, or consumer of artistic and cultural products. 

P.A.S.T.E works to erode these perquisite, limiting roles by utilising art as a method of encouraging conversations, a new creative narrative that is disparate from traditional political doublespeak. As a collective of creatives, we are at the beginning of questioning the roles of working as both artist and activist. Acts of intervention, immediate action and the importance of collaboration in an increasingly forced individualistic environment.

The only hope for a distressed world is a return to the arts of peace, an extensive awareness that will lead us to liberation.
