DIS week: Will I Lose My Dignity?

Screen Shot 2013-11-01 at 8.45.17 AM

Orange is NOT the New Black: Like every other twenty-something white girl, Julianne Hough LOVES Orange Is The New Black. She love it so much, she decided to dress up as one of her *favorite* characters from the show – Crazy Eyes – for Halloween. One problem though, Crazy Eyes is black, and J-Hough is not. Contrary to popular belief in 1920, blackface is not okay (see here for further explanation) but what about bronzeface? Oh yeah dude, that’s totally fine!! Go for it!!! Sike.


Your Social Activism for the Week: SIGN THIS PETITION to appoint Kanye West as the curator for the 2015 Venice Biennale because I want to know how to say “Yeezy Taught Me” in Italian. After that, donate to the Marina Abramovic Retirement Fund of America (M.A.R.F.A), a “citizen action group dedicated to stopping Marina Abramovic from creating further artworks”. Not only are you supporting a great cause, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of America, but you’ll be helping out Marina too. She may not thank us now, but if anyone needs to be put into forced retirement, it’s our girl Ma-Riri.


Sugar Daddies: These days, it seems like it’s harder than ever to find a nice boy and/or girl to settle down with. On top of that, the economy still sucks and, let’s face it, people are getting desperate. Like ‘that friend’ who ‘forced you’ to get Tinder, I give you one of the most eligible bachelors on the market today:

Meet Don Milisav Juan Gonzales Brzi: the wealthy Serbian bachelor who has everything *but* someone to call his lover – preferably a girl between 16-20. But if you want to attract a Millennial, you got to think and act like one. So he grabbed his camera & finest fur apparel and posted a bunch of #lavish pictures of himself in his gold-plated mansion, along with the following message:

“To all unmarried ones who would like to spend their life by my side and within all the beauties of my home. Please look below at all the magic of my home that I have decorated with taste, perhaps just for YOU”.

Chopped: A 26-year-old Chinese man cut off his penis earlier this week because he was depressed he didn’t have a girlfriend. After realizing that he LITERALLY CHOPPED OFF HIS PENIS, he quickly rode his bicycle to the nearest hospital, only for doctors to inform him there was nothing they could do because he left his knifefellas magic stick at home. And you think you’re having a bad day.


Burning Man: A man in Georgia ran back into his burning home to rescue his Bud Light because some things are worth risking your life for.

 #FFNet-Artist Daily subtitled the “Huffington Post-Internet”, this net art link site provides for endless entertainment despite its teased anonymity. Either way, I couldn’t be more down.

Mirror Mourning: This week in ‘The Youth are Damned”, we give you Selfies at Funerals – because there’s no better way of saying ‘Rest In Peace’’ than duck lips and a head tilt.


At least she knows she’s going to hell.

What is a piece of clothing that “works”? Who is working whom? Is the one who poses the one who actually “works” hardest? The S/S 2017 collection of Berlin-based, Swedish- Vietnamese designer NHU DUONG entitled ‘WORK COLLECTION’ plays with the ideas of professionalism, leisure and appropriateness through a range of garments that are inspired by work outfits and hobby uniforms. Overalls, raw denim outfits, kung-fu pyjamas, biker pants, baggy tights and gloves, bomber-jackets, bomber suits,… [read more »]

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene | Agustina Zegers

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene is a text made up of living exercises to accompany Haraway’s theorization of the Chthulucene and her upcoming book Staying With the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene. Haraway posits that not only should we name the Anthropocene carefully (including the terms Capitalocene and Plantationocene within its narrative) but that we should also be using this crucial ecological timeframe to move towards a dynamically multi-species, “sym-chtonic“, sym-poietic future: the Chthulucene.… [read more »]

Ways Of Living ⎮ Arcadia Missa

Ways of Living, curated by the team behind Arcadia Missa, moves beyond the home as a site of political contestation and into the working place, the artist studio, the public sphere, and nature. While so-called ‘social practice’ taught us that any attempt of art to engage with issues outside its own institutional reality are easily coopted into the mythologizing machinery of individualism and patriarchy, art still possesses an ability to address issues far beyond the… [read more »]

What is at Stake in the Future? | Alex Williams & Nick Srnicek

Every ‘future’ inscribes a demand upon the present. This is so whether at the level of human imagination, or within the sphere of political or aesthetic action necessary to reach towards their realisation. Futures make explicit the implicit contents of our own times, crystallising trajectories, tendencies, projects, theories and contingencies. Moreover, futures map the absent within the present, the presents which could never come into actuality, the wreckage of dreams past and desires vanquished. Futures… [read more »]

Dog Plays | Hayley Silverman

Hayley Silverman’s “Dog Plays,” an ongoing series in which a cast of untrained dogs take on the role of characters from a range of pop-culture texts, disrupt the canon of identities traditionally represented in Hollywood as they are re-inhabited by animals. Calling on artifacts ranging from Richard Linklater films, to science-fiction thrillers, to Depression-era musicals that rhapsodize class difference, these performances investigate how our understanding of narrative, authority and identity transforms when we project stories,… [read more »]
