Sinopsis

Spanish premiere

Featuring a flat, pixelled pastiche of cartoon detritus, big-haired Troll dolls, lo-fi graphics, new age  iconography, and nearly forgotten advertising slogans (‘No Fear’, ‘Just Do It!’) How to Escape from Stress Boxes is replete with superfluous elements not fit for a formal repository. Anarchivists of the recent past,  Paper Rad present a dark reflection on digital age alienation and media overload. As Paper Rad member Jacob Ciocci writes, ‘In the '70s and '80s cartoons and consumer electronics were bigger and trashier than ever and freaked kids out... Now these kids are getting older and are freaking everybody else out by using this same throw-away trash’." (Brett Kashmere).
