What the hell is the homonazi effect


 How can facebook-phrenic eroticism, queer-horror diaries and journalistic sensation co-attack the current dictatorship of shame?


The Homo-nazi Effect visualizes an actual interview (turned to fight) between a Manchester based web author/performer (Dr.Alexandros Papadopoulos) and an Athens-based gay neo-nazi (and
fashion-designer). The Athenian portrays his neo-nazi experiences in Golden-Dawn as a relentless gay orgy.

Papadopoulos transforms this testimony into a docu-perfomance and photo-essay. His acts re-interpret physically and stylistically all the characters that reside in the universe of the  homo-nazi narrator. Web-guerrilla cyber-cinematographer Calypso Larah re-edits this material, producing a frantic montage of video-sequences, loops and gags. The result is a troll art attack – a deranged tour in the sexual and fascist and geography of crisis-Athens.

                                                                       



 Gay cruising is mixed with the semiotic (and libidinal) analysis of rowdiness -- the internet is transformed into an arena of pornographic violence and outwordly extremism - the boundaries between drag-show, lecture and documentary collapse.



                                                                  


The resulting polymedia text encapsulates the chaos of information and passion that saturated the urban, migrant and digital sphere of the post-2008 austerity era. The idiosyncratic style of narration encompass the attitude of  unclassified, homeless and precarious voices who have found in cyberspace a refuge of experimentation – a synesthetic laboratory audiovisual and meta-cinematic styles of self-expression, dream-making and farce. Colored by hysterical campness, the voice-over attacks with sarcasm and psychedelia the contemporary stereotypes of gay cultures and the academicism of queer art theory. Above all the Homo -nazi Effect embraces Trol- art as the new Pop art of the suburbs: a neo-romantic celebration of paranoia and lust for the age of fear
