Anarchy: The Videogame

I know I said that posting would be sparse if at all while I was doing my residency at AS220 but, you know, this picture from a park in Barcelona came across my virtual desk courtesy the brilliant Matt Malooly in Chicago and I had to share its deeply conflictual messages with you. As you gaze upon it, you may enjoy pondering the questions: Who created this? What are they trying to say? How well were they paid? And is it extra awesome or just fucked up that, clearly, none of those dudes are anarchists?

My argument is old, but bears repeating here: that if this is your mode of activism, you need a new mode, and if this your mode of marketing, then please cut it out. But this image offers so few clues as to what is being said, it’s almost nothing but a funny brand mention of the kind I discuss extensively in Unmarketable. See the original here, with the Spanish version of the caption, “the motto of the new generation?”
