Under the Flag exposes how the world view of self-proclaimed neo-Nazis is deeply rooted in the everyday Soviet mentality. The work allows us to see the workings of illiberal populism up close. Fifteen years ago the EU made half-hearted attempts to boycott Austria after Jörg Haider’s party joined its federal government, the start of a continuing rise of right-wing extremism. Under the Flag shows the leaders of a Lithuanian neo-Nazi party as they express their fascination for Haider. In doing so, they expose themselves, on a platform provided by the artist, to the public.
