CHANCE 2000 feat. Die Sonstigen
“Vote for yourself!” was one slogan of Schlingensief’s Chance 2000 party in the German general election 1998, and the other was: “Failure is an opportunity!”Schlingensief’s electoral campaign “circus” brought to public attention the people who typically remain invisible in the polls – the minority hidden behind a grey bar in the electoral votes charts. “Others” – Sonstige – they are officially called, and they are the direct candidates of small and minor parties, who unflaggingly try to attack the 5% threshold needed to obtain a representation in parliament. On the night before the polls, notorious OTHERS will team up in the big top to present themselves, ranging from the Berlin Bergpartei to the FRAUEN party and the MIETERPARTEI.
And there is an even larger group behind them, which is not represented by a coloured bar in the charts, although they are a decisive force in almost any election. Who are they? “It’s the non-voters, stupid!”
An evening with Detlev Neufert and guests.
(Detlev Neufert was campaign director for the Chance 2000 party and later joined the Partei der Nichtwähler [non-voters‘ party])
