Scott King: Welcome to Saxnot
Was it collective nostalgia that led to the UK’s Brexit referendum result? Scott King creates a satirical proposal for a post-Brexit UK: A society oriented toward the values of security, tradition, camaraderie, and independence—and also highly reminiscent of yellowed postcards from 1970s British holiday resorts. Because everything was better back then, wasn’t it?
