‘Deliberare Humanum Est: Because pretending we’re not seeing it is diabolical’ is an installation by Marina Münter at the G.B.T.H. Project in Second Life maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Starry%20Night/204/231/3186 This video bears witness to her artwork and her message.
Marina says that ‘Deliberare Humanum Est (Because Pretending We're Not seeing it is Diabolical) actually brings more questions than answers’, but it is a response to the recent election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil. He is another in an increasingly long list of democratically elected populist leaders.
In common, they claim to stand aside of politics – as a ‘justification’ for not seeking consensus, as is appropriate in a true pluralist democracy. And far from being apolitical, behind these leaders is a web of connections to an unaccountable power clique, who are willing to suppress dissent and erase differing views.
