The interplay of activity and passivity, of power and powerlessness within all kinds of relationships – fictitious or real – are the key aspect of the series I, I Will Be King. And You, You Will Be Queen. Angela shows that the distribution of power in the constellations in question is not constant but varying and hereby discusses the structures of power set by the media.
