MEGLODEMOCRAT: THE PUBLIC ART OF RAFAEL LOZANO-HEMMER

An intimate look into artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's large-scale interactive creations.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is one of the most acclaimed artists working today, but his pieces wouldn’t exist without public participation.

Meglodemocrat explores Rafael’s quest to stage a democratic takeover of urban space. Shot over ten years in 30 cities around the world, the film provides intimate access to his large-scale interactive creations in locations such as Trafalgar Square in London, the Vancouver Olympics and New York’s Park Avenue Tunnel, culminating in a piece that crosses the US-Mexico border.

In our increasingly isolated lives, Meglodemocrat serves as an antidote to alienation: Rafael’s work is a rallying point for a screened-in urban population, longing to connect. His art doesn’t discriminate, and all who participate are given a voice. With that voice comes a sense of hope.
