Kakistocracy is a term that has been used to describe a state or country run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens. It combines qualities of “nepotism, oligarchy, plutocracy, kleptocracy, demagoguery, alt-right values and a disturbing tendency toward fascist nationalism”. As artists from two nations both presenting as kleptocracies, we combined our perspectives and artistic styles to create this artist book by re-interpreting our landscapes as dumping grounds, and printing them on papers filled with detritus and worn with holes. The double pamphlet French-door structure allows for a myriad of presentations and enhances the non-linear exploration of these ideas.
