In the beginning Postspectacle was a reaction, a vague intention to alter, expand or break some of the implicit conditions, to escape the general atmosphere, a desire to move away from the spectacle. It started from the questions: How to perform in a society of spectacle? And why? What’s the point of adding another spectacle to the artworld when we are living in a generalized spectacle? Postspectacle doesn't really have an answer, but by dealing with these questions some practices emerged. One is to dislocate the performance and bring the "outside spectacle" to art spaces. For instance, Postspectacle invited the Romanian Army to host a dance workshop and perform a drill show in a contemporary dance venue. A reversed operation is to infiltrate the big stages of mass media, business and politics with the skills, knowledge and approaches from performance. The Presidential Candidate is one of the results of this operation.
