UDWFG presents Shintaro Kago (9Â°ed.) Industrial Revolution and World WarYou know Kago’s iconic image of a head exploding and it being filled with cheap plastic junk, mass-produced goods? The reason it's horrifying is because it suggests that we aren’t that special. As a civilisation we mass-produce plastic shit because we are mass-produced shit. We are a joke told through our pointless repetitive lives, and it’s that black joke that’s at the heart of Shintaro Kago’s work.
