Is politics real?
A fake populist party, which appeared within a few weeks in 2010 in Estonia, received thousands of members and was given 20% in the pre-election polls. How was this possible? What role did the media play and what is our perception of politics? How much does political language now use the tools of fiction?
NO75 Unified Estonia touched on the fears and hopes and embodied the manipulations and delusions that underlie politics. Could it happen elsewhere today?
We talk about it with Daniel Vaarik (one of the creators of Unified Estonia) and Marcello Maneri (professor of Sociology of Cultural and Communicative Processes at Bicocca University). The meeting will be moderated by Danilo De Biasio.
