Doomsday is approaching, it is two and a half minutes to midnight. Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s satire Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb from 1964, Yael Bartana’s What if women ruled the world creates a forum for action, which explores possible alternatives to a world dominated by men. Each night, actresses and internationally renowned experts – defence advisers, soldiers, peace activists, humanitarians, politicians and leading thinkers – come together to formulate new strategies on how to handle crises. Intertwining fiction and reality, satire and serious experimental politics, together they attempt to solve the global emergencies, and to stop the Doomsday Clock from reaching midnight.
