Infodementia is a collection of essays, articles and reviews written throughout 2007. As a columnist for the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten (Denmark’s biggest daily newspaper) as well as another paper, Dato, Martin Hall comments upon events such as The MTV Awards Copenhagen and the capitol’s yearly fashion week. The book also features extensive essays written for The Royal Danish Theatre and leading Danish rock magazine Gaffa.
As additional value to the selected articles Infodementia furthermore contains a series of otherwise unpublished writings – such as two extensive features written during the filming of a major motion picture in Prague as well as during a stay in Buenos Aires. Hall’s reflections on his debut film appearance in the motion picture Flammen & Citronen (“The Flame and the Lemon”, at the time the most expensive Danish-language production ever made) is not only a very amusing piece of writing but also an article that renders great insight into the making of the film.
The release of Infodementia coincided with Martin Hall’s 25th anniversary as an author. Likewise his debut book from 1983 Infodementia features a line of the author’s graphical works and illustrations.
