Soy Idiota. Somos todos idiotas. ¿Por qué eres idiota?
I’m an idiot because I ignore the crushing perspective of the world around me by committing myself to my own romanticised form of a dance that was invented 50 years ago in the South Bronx by children who could only imagine the amount of privilege that I was born into. I lean on my appropriation of this dance in my art yet I deny the brands that have attached themselves to it as they run the world. Am I a hypocrite? I make my own fake brands, free brands. If I were smart, I would give in to my privilege even more than I already do, and use it to win, to claim ownership. I would surround myself with as much material comfort as possible. I would deny and cowardly ignore the injustice, the death, the burning of the world, the continuation of the madness. But I am an idiot, so I continue as I am.
Download the “Soy Idiota” logo for free for making your own stencils, prints, embroidery, etc. I give permission to use it in all ways that make no one any profits, but please, if you feel like sharing, I'd love to see what you create with it and hear your own tale of why you are also an idiot. Maybe your art and/or story will end up in our upcoming zine.
