Astrology IRL: Your Guide to #2K13

We’ve made it 99% through the year of #yolo, and 2013 shines bright like a diamond, just around the corner. What does it have in store for us?

Consciousness continues to shift. We all become more connected and a little bit more psychic as we move deeper in to the age of Aquarius. The network is expanding. In 2012, Neptune shifted into Pisces for 14 years, and reality is still downloading the upgrade. 2013 will be Instagramed through Neptune’s new rosy filter.

Saturn was in Libra for nearly three years,  and it was certainly no day at the spa. Saturn shifted into Scorpio in October of 2012 and will be there until 2015, asking us to get deeper, to turn Neptune’s dream into an improved reality. The water is still murky as we enter 2013, but our swim through the swamps of Scorpio will lead us towards clear Caribbean water by the end of the year. If you feel like you’re swimming against the tides, just jump in a cosmic kayak and keep pushing on; you’re already on the way towards a #newlife.

Uranus and Pluto are hacking the system, and they will cause two major meltdowns in 2013, on May 21 and November 1. Uranus rules rebellion, change, protest, and new ideas, while Pluto is the concentration of power, wealth, and government control. The two planets came together in the 1960’s and created huge impetus for social unrest and change in society: Think women’s rights, civil rights, and flower power. Now, Uranus and Pluto come together and form a square in the sky six times between 2012 and 2015, testing the movements that began 50 years ago. We have to #occupy the cosmic shift to manifest our destiny.

We were not born to die on 12.21.12, as hysterical hippies and the Mayan calendar claim. 2013 is going to be a year full of exciting changes and tectonic shifts. Astrology IRL can be your guide through the cosmic transformation, with information about all the planetary shifts, retrogrades, full moons, new moons, eclipses, and important aspects that will be felt by every sign of the zodiac in 2013. Stay tuned for detailed monthly horoscopes beginning in January!

Vanessa DisPlaced |Racism vs. Censorship

Vanessa DisPlaced | Racism vs. Censorship Poet Vanessa Place trades sincerity for triggering text only to find herself in the art world’s own Bermuda Triangle. A heated debate over whether Vanessa Place’s poetry is “racist,” “insensitive,” “ignorant,” “uninteresting,” or “important” has erupted via social media, becoming the topic for many a long form essay and op ed, making everyone a critic. What has brought Place’s poetry so much media attention, though, is the systematic censorship… [read more »]

Pindul’s Rewards | Carlos Reyes and Alessandro Bava

Let’s, for a moment, argue that art and politics (as we currently practise their convergent theories, and – with a secondary disclaimer – specifically in western visual art terminologies) has its roots in Italy. We’ll point out how the artists’ manifesto was the first real example of the merging of art and politics in the form of the art object, and that it was The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism (published in Bologna in 1909)… [read more »]

Pure Disclosure | Siliqoon

Mood Disorder | David Horvitz

Inspired by Bas Jan Ander’s I’m Too Sad To Tell You, Mood Disorder is a “stock image” made by David Horvitz of himself to look like a typical stock image of depression (using research from his Sad, Depressed, People book and project). It was then put onto Wikipedia’s page for Mood Disorder, after which it became copyright-free and began to be used as a free stock image for depression on cheap websites all over the… [read more »]

#FOMO at ICA

In the last weekend of May, London’s Institute of Contemporary Art hosted FOMO, a three-day conference chaired by German video-artist, professor and philosopher Hito Steyerl. FOMO (fear of missing out) indicated the event’s overarching topic of anxiety – and its socio-cultural-political plentitude in the post-digital or ‘anthropocene’ era. The program featured an impressive cast of international theorists, artists, activist, and hackers, all engaging with contemporary digital existence. Theorist Judy Wajcman first presented a series of… [read more »]

Young, Colored & Angry: Issue #1

“Hey, some of us are actually young, colored, and angry, but some of us aren’t, and we all have something to say” explains Elliot Brown Jr. over coffee at a midtown Starbucks near his part-time job assisting artist Hank Willis Thomas. When Elliott decided to start a magazine along with fellow NYU Tisch student Ashley Rahimi Syed, the two friends reasoned that whatever tone they expressed themselves in, they would inevitably be dubbed ‘young, colored… [read more »]

Wether (excerpt) | Andrew Norman Wilson

In the summer of 2014, Nicole Russo and I started planning a show at her gallery, Chapter NY, together. The gallery is a single room. It has a recessed doorway that is also a window, and an air conditioner pierces the glass above the door. The gallery faces south and receives direct sunlight, so the shade in the window is always drawn. A temperamental radiator sits on the floor. Steam from the city’s underground steam… [read more »]
