They Live (In Search of Text Zero)

Serbian playwrights and dramaturgs Milan Marković and Maja Pelević have recently enrolled in nine political parties in Serbia and were soon invited by many to become members of their boards. They sent to the party leaders a text/programme of cultural policy and political marketing entitled Idea, Strategy, Movement [Ideja, strategija, pokret]. The text has received all but excellent reactions in the party seats. For their programme, Pelević and Marković have used the 1928 text of the German Nazi politician Joseph Goebbels Knowledge and Propaganda, in which they have changed just three words: "propaganda” was replaced by "political marketing”; "National Socialism” became "democracy, socialism, or liberal democracy” – depending on the party’s orientation; while "Hitler” was changed into the name of the particular party leader.
