|We…are Doomed (Pragmatic Propaganda) – The Irrational Library + TRIK[Concertobooks publication]|
’We…are Doomed‘ (Pragmatic Propaganda) is a crossover project connecting political design, news related cartoons, spoken word and music. The new book, full of sociopolitical cartoons by illustrator TRIK, is also the third studio album by the inimitable Irrational Library band. In order to really bring the deeper meaning of ’Pragmatic Propaganda‘ to life, TRIK‘s edgy graphic work has been combined in words and visuals with frontman Joshua Baumgarten‘s lyrics, and vice versa. This truly is cartoon activism meets spokensoulpunkrock‘n‘roll. Put the record on, immerse yourself in the book and let yourself be bombarded by what follows. If you want to know where we as a society stand right now, this is the document of the times, that you are looking for. Apart from various promotions both on- and offline, there will also be a propaganda tour with live performances at event locations, art gallery festivals and other venues packed with art, music and all that good stuff. Here, TRIK‘s work will confront and connect with The Irrational Library‘s music in a full-scale live performance covering all the bases. Come get some!
|We…are Doomed ’Pragmatic Propaganda‘ Project is a book and a record (vinyl+cd) with political artwork by TRIK + songs by The Irrational Library, released as one product. Along with this will be a theatre and gallery show at various venues throughout The Netherlands. In short: what TRIK does with visuals, through his cartoons and political illustrations, the band does with words, through the lyrics of frontman Joshua Baumgarten. The images and music resonate with one another, complement one another and complete one another. That is the foundation for this project.|
