Welcome to St Mickeyland! In painting-like tableaux, a “reservation” inhabited by cartoon and media icons is shown, stimulating our childlike media memory. The assembled characters are in search of meaning in life, reflecting on their creation in the honeypot of capital. While Snow White learns stand-up paddling, Winnie the Pooh gives birth to a descendant and adds a dash of humanity to the fictional shell.
