Bart Domburg - @realdonaldtrump
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
Trump managed his presidential power through Twitter in his very own demagogic way. Twitter gave Trump the opportunity to interact directly with his followers, which he gratefully took advantage of. Through dozens of tweets a day, he spread directives, opinions, insults, intimidations, and judgments that his eighty million followers eagerly read. In 2013, artist Bart Domburg started writing historical texts, data and archive material with a fineliner on large sheets of paper. In 2020 he realized that Trump was literally writing history through social media; this had never been done before. He decided to write down all tweets from October 1, 2020.
