Would you vote for a gnome? 38,000 fed-up Amsterdammers did, when given the option in 1970. Across the globe, in liberal democracies where the right to vote is framed as both civil right and civic duty, disillusioned creative activists run for public office on sarcastic, ironic and outrageous platforms. With little intention of winning in the conventional sense, they use drag, camp, and stand-up comedy to undermine the legitimacy of their opponents and call into question the electoral system itself.

In Electoral Guerrilla Theatre Bogad explains satirical campaigns around the world, analyzing them in national, cultural, political and legal contexts. Electoral Guerrilla Theatre offers an entertaining, enlightening and informative read for citizens, activists and tricksters.

Author Larry Bogad will be at Modern Times, reading from his book, taking questions and signing copies of this new book.
