Press Release Nov./Dec. 2014. NYC.

*Global Direct*
http://GlobalDirect.today

Artwork by *Paolo Cirio* and currently shown at DOX Prague, Palazzo del
Governatore Parma and online on Turbulence.org
With the participation of Carne Ross, Daniele Archibugi, Douglas Rushkoff,
Jon Lebkowsky, Ethan Zuckerman, Michel Bauwens, David Moore, among others.

The artwork Global Direct is a visionary political philosophy promoting
global participatory democracy driven by information technology and the
failure of current primitive political systems.

To illustrate the conceptual work the artist has drawn a series of fifteen
organograms for initiating a program for global participatory democracy.

These creative diagrams are informed by research in contemporary and
emergent forms of democracy which the artist conducted and integrates as
part of the artwork. Furthermore, the artist promotes Global Direct through
designing a political poster campaign to popularize its visions.
http://GlobalDirect.today/campaign

Akin to a traditional political campaign, posters are disseminated
throughout public walls in several cities and consistently feature the
campaign’s political symbol beside each slogan. In the poster, a clear sky
visually represents a bright future full of new possibilities above the
clouds.

Global Direct researches in pursuit of a new advanced version of democracy,
where everyone can take part in local and global governance, justice, and
economy. For this new political civilization, Global Direct aims to inspire
new protocols, procedures, and policies that can cope with the social
complexity, crises, and speed of contemporary life. These issues are
addressed in the artist’s theoretical essay.
http://GlobalDirect.today/about

Combining multiple voices and ideas about alternative modes of advanced
participatory and global democracy, the documentation on the website
includes academic publications, links to organizations, and articles that
influenced the creation of the project.
http://GlobalDirect.today/today

As part of its documentary component, the artist produced over ten video
statements by visionaries close to the ideas promoted by Global Direct. The
collection of short video statements are available on the website, offering
a compelling overview of the potentials of an ideal society.
http://GlobalDirect.today/statements

The website also presents the artist’s research into social sciences for
comparing the political structures of several countries, which are
presented through many charts that diagram different governmental functions
and features.
http://GlobalDirect.today/yesterday

Through this painstaking investigation the artist was able to analyze
common and specific mechanics of contemporary governance and reassemble
them with new organograms drawn in order to suggest the creative political
alternative proposed by the project.

The fifteen diagrams created for the project are presented via large prints
as an installation for art galleries. Each print indicates a single area of
governance and social structure.

The diagrams are also presented together on the website and distributed in
printed leaflets as interconnected networks of conceptual maps that
influence one other in a feedback loop for a fair, self-governing global
society.
http://globaldirect.today/press/GD-DIAGRAMS-PDF/0_global_direct-networked_governance.pdf

These diagrams drawn by the artists are the core of the artwork, describing
the political program of Global Direct, as the ultimate utopic vision,
directly inspired by the multiple perspectives found through research on
prevailing political systems, theories, and alternative ideas about
advanced forms of democracy.


Global Direct is a 2014 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
in NY, U.S., for its Turbulence.org website, which is made possible with
funding from the Jerome Foundation.

Global Direct has been especially supported by DOX Centre for Contemporary
Art in Prague and Lunatici Cultural A.P.S Association through the
Municipality of Parma, Italy.
