Choose Your Future, 2021, is part of KW Digital: Open Secret, 16 July – 31 December.
In 2021, I commissioned a group of artists and memers to write short wiki-style descriptions of fantastical future scenarios. Writers were instructed to copy/paste existing wikipedia entries and “play mad libs” with the nouns and dates. Drawing on movements from the past, these short stories recombine political history to anticipate long tail ideologies and factions that may soon emerge.
Choose Your Future takes the hyperbolic imaginings of young people, raised on the internet, and puts their words directly into the mouths of content creators. In this ...
Building on his research for his landmark 2018 publication Politigram & the Post-left, artist Joshua Citarella has been conducting a series of interviews with Gen Z users who post radical political content on social media, as part of a forthcoming Rhizome commission. This event brought together three of the most sophisticated figures he has encountered through this research, all of whom are associated with the fragmented online communities known as “post-Left.”
For the event, each participant was asked to prepare micro-lectures describing possible and preferred scenarios for politics and society over the next twenty-five years, and to comment on the role of internet culture in shaping ...
For the past several years, artist Joshua Citarella has targeted his research-based practice on the political behaviors of the young and very online. Jacob Hurwitz-Goodman has similarly used his documentary practice to investigate emergent political modes like Seasteading. Together in When Guys Turn 20, they explore how users across the political spectrum deploy memetic tactics on social media, as well as how the rhetoric and reality of Silicon Valley diverge.
Cycling through a variety of locales and roles (teacher, Twitch streamer, prisoner, Sith Lord), Citarella narrates online political methods and mechanisms of propaganda. From MMORPGs as a proof-case for socialism to ...
Online content creators are now forming real world political organizations. DNR community members call in live for on the ground reports from: the Center for Political Innovation in Austin, TX and America First Political Action Conference III in Orlando, FL.
This episode is being jointly released by JOSHUA CITARELLA & NEW MODELS following a period of research on the status of cultural institutions and the future of post-Web2 creator communities. A New York based artist, Josh also has a podcast, a Twitch stream, and a Discord community (Josh’s Super Secret Sleeper Cell). He’s been a guest on the New Models podcast twice and joined us last year for a public lecture on Gen-Z’s political identity formation online.
We’re sharing this conversation to let you see behind the scenes of how we are thinking about our respective platforms — and the ecosystem ...
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, an estimated 24 million dollars helped to fund 20 newly established art centers throughout eastern Europe. The SCCA mission was to archive “unofficial art” (works that were previously unrecognized by the authoritarian state) and to cultivate a new form of avant garde contemporary art with curious political overtones.
Audio from the live event: June 6th 2022 at New Museum in NYC.
Celebrating the launch of a new book by Do Not Research, an online community and platform founded by artist Josh Citarella in 2020. Described as a “detestable band of washed up millennial seapunks” (Lolcow) and “zoomers obsessed with Mark Fisher” (Buzzfeed), Do Not Research grew out of Citarella’s long-term research on Gen Z political formations and the internet. The project now features a highly active blog for writing, visual art, internet culture, research and more, launched in 2020.

Recorded mid-“Future of Critique”-conference in the former West German capital of Bonn, this conversation with New York-based artist & consultant DENA YAGO (formerly K-HOLE) and artist JOSHUA CITARELLA real-talk-debriefs some of the structural models on which legacy criticism built its house. Topics include: the museum’s changing cultural status, the knock-on effects of “anti-gatekeeping” discourse, speculative near-future museum defense strategies, the alt paths of younger artists, and what publishing models stand a chance post-2022.
My guest is a 22 year old reactionary who is “extremely-online”. He was a Bernie supporter in 2016 and self-educated on sites like 4chan, Instagram and YouTube. We discuss authoritarianism, libertarianism, the enlightenment, neoreactionary theory, Hindutva, vegetarianism and shitposting.
