Alexa Karolinski & Ingo Niermann
Army of Love (2016)
Romantic love is saturated with commoditization. The socialistic premise behind “free love” crumbles when desiring competition gets in the way, and in the age of hook-up apps, the possibility of free sex represents the liberalization, not the liberation, of love. 'Army of Love' (2016) introduces a propositional regiment of soldiers diverse in age and appearance and tasked with solving the persistent social malaise of dire loneliness.
