Help send a fake Norwegian political party to Brussels for a campaign to demand voting rights for non-citizens.

No one can vote for the Intelligence Party. It's a Norwegian party for the EU parliament - Norway isn't even a member of the union, but adopts almost 90% EU law.

This political party can't really exist, but it will change the European Union. A European party that is not allowed in the EU Parliment, that is for non-citizen voting rights, lead by a party leader that doesn't have voting rights in Norway - is going to shake up Europe.

Non-European citizens can’t vote but are counted as voters after 12 months of residency, effectively counted in the outcome of the power division in Europe. So if you are aleady counted as a vote, demand the right to vote.

The Intelligence Party is lead by one of Norway’s most controversial artists.
Yes, this is art, in the form of a political campaign that does not have a hope in hell of success, It's also documentary film. Your support will provide recources for the project as well as the film to be done in 2023. Shorter films will be posted online throughout the campaign.

So even if it isn't a real party, it will disturb the political media landscape and will have an influence on Europe.

Now, before you decide to support us, you should know this: We are going to save Europe from itself with traditionalism, tribalism and nationalism.

You’ll see, this is how we avoid violence and this is a solution that no politician could represent in this day and age, regardless of what side they stand on.

This project is going to Brussels in May 2019. It has been followed since its inception in 2017 by documentary film maker Nizam Najjar, who will be making a film about the whole process. Your support to this project is support for the film as well.

To give you a better picture of what the Intelligence Party is all about and how it operates, watch our videos and read what our last campaign looked like here below.

"With Lars Cuzner's project "The Intelligence Party", 2018, the festival finally arrived at the topicality, because Lars Cuzner has set up a fictional party here with which he moves in Graz as if he were on an election campaign tour. Tirelessly, the committed artist introduces the program of his "Intelligence Party", a party that on the one hand demands the humanist demand for a right to vote for foreigners, and on the other hand supports this demand with right-wing arguments, such as true love of the homeland. The paradox seems hardly to go - and yet: in the discussion around post-colonialism, for example, "nationalism as a legitimate anti-colonial resistance movement" (Varela / Dhawan) is repeatedly discussed. The fact that steirischer herbst artistically discusses contradictions like these in various forms, is exactly what makes it so necessary this year." Artmagazine.cc

"All across Europe, the right fears what they call “the Great Replacement,” where eroding European values supposedly cannot hold up to Islamic fundamentalism… and worse. The Intelligence Party, initiated by artist and activist Lars Cuzner, has a proposal to assuage these fears. Founded in Norway, the Intelligence Party is named after one of that country’s oldest political parties, which was led by romantic poet Johan Sebastian Welhaven in the 1830s. Today this party is reborn and appeals to cultural protectionists across Europe to enshrine the most important right of all: the right to vote. The universality of this right and its constant expansion is the most quintessentially European value of all, the Intelligence Party argues, and it should therefore be extended to non-citizen residents, regardless of where they come from. The party’s thinking goes that universal participation in elections would reveal more commonalities than expected between European and non-European residents, who might, it would turn out, share with conservative electorates a concern for family values, religious freedom, and the protection of cultural identity. That, at least, would stop any fundamentalist insurgency in its tracks, so the Intelligence Party proclaims. After spreading the party’s message in Norway and several other European countries, online, and in rousing public discussions, Cuzner now turns to Austria and Graz. Paradoxically injecting a left-wing demand into a right-wing agenda and presenting it to an undecided electorate, Cuzner and his party question today’s hackneyed notions of politics as well as the truth-procedures used to reach them."
