How to Fix Democracy

Jun 4, 2021

Democracy Through the Camera Lens 

Astra Taylor is an author and filmmaker whose documentary What is Democracy? covers much of the same ground as our own series, but with a different essential question in mind. In this interview, Astra Taylor and host Andrew Keen reflect on what they drew from ancient Athenian democratic practices in their respective quests to understand democracy and predict what it will look like (and sound like) in the future. From the evolution of citizenship to the impact of capitalism and debt on democracy, Taylor and Keen trace threads of democracy from antiquity to the present day.
