What would life be like if a 22 year old man were president of the United States in a decade where love and peace was all the rage? (English/ German)

Don't Trust Anyone over Thirty charts the career of twenty-four-year-old rock singer Neil Sky, who is elected President of the United States after instigating teenage riots to change the voting age to fourteen and putting LSD in the drinking water of the Congress. But once President Sky retires the over-thirty population in LSD re-conditioning camps, he faces his own unique demise.

Conceived of by the conceptual artist Dan Graham, who began his career as a rock critic in the 1960s, Don't Trust Anyone over Thirtyfeatures video by Tony Oursler, songs written by Rodney and music performed live by the band Japanther. Philip Huber, the master puppeteer of Being John Malkovich has designed and constructed the puppets adapted from puppet drawings by Marie-Paule Mcdonald.

With introductions by Francesca von Habsburg and Sandra Antelo-Suarez, and contributions by Daniela Zyman and Diedrich Diederichsen, and a conversation between Dan Graham, Tony Oursler, Rodney Graham, Sandra Antelo-Suarez, Chrissie Isles and Philippe Vergne
