The election campaign of Dror Feiler (2010)

In the 2010 Swedish general election, artist and composer Dror Feiler was a candidate for the Left Party (Swedish: Vänsterpartiet) in Stockholm.

To help him spread his message, I decided to include his election campaign in the exhibition I created with Maiken Vibe Bauer as part of the Images-festival in Copenhagen.

Dror Feiler obtained 1,784 personal preference votes in Stockholm Municipality (4.51% of the Left Party votes, the second most voted candidate on the list after party chairman Lars Ohly) and 629 personal preference votes in Stockholm County (1.99% of the Left Party votes).
