PROPAGANDA

7-Propaganda-3.png

Published December 8, 2017.

A limited edition broadsheet to capture our evolution from retail to creative studio.

A rhizomatic dictatorship always on the verge of either: a coup, incorporation, or collapse. Devaluing systems, de-systemitizing values. Politicizing everything because it always already was.

Exultation and exhortation are (our) generational comorbidities. Reminding cultural investors that social capital doesn't pay the rent.

— 

Artists whose work is not quite art, but also not not-art. Or maybe we're not artists. Maybe we're just ad hoc aesthetes. Tasteful strivers. Social climbing designers.

— 

Commercially ambivalent, culturally fragmented, and aesthetically precise. 

— 

Weary/wary of vague excellence and ambiguous value.

— 

Avant Yawn

— 

Didactic

— 

Provoking value from intellectually compromised commercialism and fragmented retail aesthetics. Finding new ways to utilize art industry signs and symbols in non-art contexts.

— 

Rupturing passive linearity and its choreography of good intentions. (Whose insidious potential always tilts toward the gospel of gradualism.) Deprioritizing self-righteous catharsis.

— 

An art and design studio whose approach draws from commerce and consumerism.

— 

Blurring the line between ourselves and our work.

— 

Serendipitous realists.

— 

Asymmetry
