The article analyzes the symbolism of the Guy Fawkes mask, which has achieved a global visibility in the protest movement “Occupy” around 2010. Being taken from the movie “V for Vendetta” (USA 2006), which adapts the comic “V for Vendetta”, the mask performs a complex interplay between pop culture and political protest. By wearing the Fawkes mask and by blowing up the British parliament, a re-appropriation of political representation for the people is demanded in the film. Thus, the Guy Fawkes mask symbolizes a genuinely democratic desire. However, the political symbolism of uprising develops a disturbing affinity towards totalitarism at the same time.
