"We in Nis used to be fashionable. We copied Italian fashion and spent holidays in Spain," said a cafe owner who, fearing retribution, asked not to be named. "But once the wars started and the borders closed, we were lost to the outside world and all we could do was copy Belgrade. So we turned to turbo-folk music, guns and the chic of the criminal class."
Artists come from a position of privilege where forays into low culture (subculture / bad art / humor / kitsch / cartoons) are regarded as progressive (subversive / destabilizing / refreshing / deskilling).
The artist, with a surplus of agency, does some public bloodletting in a show of health and humility.
We are the opposite, coming from below. We are pretentious / bourgeois / arriviste. We take whatever agency we can get.
Why do we do this?
This question, being at the root of our practice, is answered in the work itself.
In the meantime, it might help to keep in mind:
Art continues to predict its end
Class is a transitional self-identity
Ideas of The Artist are always changing
Artists are required to accept projections of agency
Entertainment raises us
Fandom is a real sociocultural force
Comics is to art as populism is to cartels
Design, like the algorithm, is subsuming aesthetic paradigms and remapping high/low in unpredictable ways
About 10trillion times more interesting, progressive and prolific than that mug Basquiat ever was...

CEREBREMIC NEUTRON HARPOON (Thought Lance) holds complete thought processes to constructions and launches outline that can consturct any shape energy it wants to construct in any dimension of physical magnetics. Several remanipulators such as dimensional doors, dimension cracks. BOMBERISM: Construction flight base is on the cipher, which files in a spiral cipher. Included in the map and maps are conscious designs stars (misplaced dimensions) the actual firing of electromagnetic black lights (implosion) and bio-magnetic pyramids. Dimensional cracks: the travel of them will lead to other dimensions.
