Latest illustrations for Internazionale magazine about mindfulness. According to Ronald Purser, this market-friendly movement could be easily co-opted and reduced to merely pacifying feelings of anxiety and disquiet at the individual level, enticing us to accept things as they are, rather than seeking to challenge the social, political and economic inequalities that cause such distress.
I illustrated an interesting essay by Slavoj Žižek about the film Joker, for Italian magazine Internazionale.
The philosopher explains why an immersion into the dark world of Joker can cure us of politically correct illusions and simplifications, among other things.
Žižek also describes Joker's behavior from a psychoanalytic point of view, and tells why Joker couldn't be a symbol of political protest in the real world, as the character's violence has not a political intent and he's just an explosion of negativity for his own sake.
