Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran
*If you have Instagram, we recommend watching our other, multi-screen, version of Rich Kids.* In 2015 Robert Mugabe’s son filmed himself pouring champagne over the £45,000 watch his father bought him, tagging it on Instagram as #daddyrunsthewholecountry. Based on the extravagant lives of young people in the Middle East, this virtual production co-directed and performed by Javaad Alipoor comments on social media’s complicity in the widening gap between rich and poor. This version of Rich Kids embeds an Instagram feed into the performance.
