A film by
Supercharger—blown collective & Nástio Mosquito
Influence is part of BATOTASTAS, a Nástio Mosquito recipe for TTTAW performed at the Black Box Gasteig Munich as part of Spielart 2021 by Nástio Mosquito .
The bitter taste of mediocrity lingers in the mouth of Joseph Lingenfelter, a middle aged lecturer at a bottom-feeding university. When he realises that his current role as academic manager, to a ‘cash cow’ degree course entitled Optimising Behavioural Consumerism will represent the pinnacle of his academic career, something inside him snaps.
Joseph has developed a single insanely logical idea, a thesis that refuses to be contained within the confines of academic propriety, a theory that he could never have kept to himself.
The film joins Joseph at his retirement party; and it does not take long before his peculiar homily unfolds.
In their short video work Influence prevailing societal attitudes to migration, integration, (and perhaps more significantly, the theories that are constructed to justify them), are interrogated by Supercharger—blown collective & Nástio Mosquito.
