The Dark Administrator by John Huntington is a suggestive live performance lecture and exhibition about bureaucracy and resistance. With the office space as a starting point, the work deals with contemporary humans’ heavy addiction to systematize everything in their surroundings.
The performance is a documentary collage of examples, stories and demonstrations where an everyday frustration linked to feelings of powerlessness unfolds. Various forms of ritual protective measures are presented and an alternative professional role slowly emerges from the shadows. The work is accompanied by apocalyptic sounds by Swedish musician Dödsvarg. In the exhibition different traces of ceremonial bureaucratic actions are displayed.
