ANTICHRIST is a tribute to plunder, sex, noise and violence. It is designed to fascinate and alienate the spectators at the same time by charging them up with high energy that fuses destruction, chaos, mayhem and beauty.

Istvan Kantor is a master of control and manipulation. His Neoist philosophy lets him do anything he wants without worrying about copyrights, political correctness, agressive behavior, bad attitude, or sexploitation.

ANTICHRIST is a manifesto that sums up Kantor’s ongoing and never ending critical lament always centering on authority and power in technological society. The almost mythological images taken from such wellknown filmmakers as Kubrick and Ridley Scott are transformed into iconic insults feeding people’s imagination with robopunk rebellion. Kantor lives in a world of zombies, robots, vampires, white mice and soldiers and he seems to have always lots of fun.

ANTICHRIST was produced for Videodrome 2010, an annual “noise-overdose event” organized and produced by Jubal Brown and Dropframe Video at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, in Toronto. It was among the two dozen short machingun style works deafening and blinding the spectators for several hours.
