OUR ELECTION NIGHTMARE: DOOMOCRACY RULES AT THE BROOKLYN ARMY TERMINAL

Nervous about your upcoming vote? Doomocracy, a political haunted house will have you running screaming to the ballot box

By TAMARA GLENNY

It’s art! It’s politics! It’s terrifying! It’s heeeere…. Mexican artist Pedro Reyes, famous for his participatory projects, is creating a Halloween house of political horrors on the East River. Doomocracy, at the appropriately dilapidated Brooklyn Army Terminal, is being produced in collaboration with Creative Time, the arts organization that brought us Kara Walker’s giant sugar baby at the Domino plant. It will run from October 7 through November 6, two days before the presidential election, and will lead visitors in groups through a choose-your-own-adventure-style trail of American political terrors. Do you worry about climate change? Genetically modified foods? Donald Trump? Benghazi? Giant corporations? There’s an anxiety specially for you! Tickets are free, but you have to reserve a day and time and the spots go fast when the limited batches are released, so sign up now for a notification. Boo!

Getting there the new ferry stop at the Army Terminal opens next year, so for now visitors should catch the shuttle bus that does regular runs to and from the 59th Street R train station.
