Why don't we do political satire in Alice?

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first reaction to The Little Prick was: why don't we do political satire in Alice Springs? It's a show of mock-up magazine covers, created in reaction to "lifestyle magazines" – ResideNT and the like (apparently there have been a number). It's funny and provocative, quite crass at times,  and what seems significant – in thinking about the difference between Darwin and Alice – is that it targets 'big ticket items'. These include our political leaders. KIERAN FINNANE reviews.
