Spike #68 Summer 2021: Patriarchy

Spike’s summer issue infiltrates enemy territory, probing the patriarchy and exploring the many forms it takes today. From a polemic in favor of anarchy to a takedown of Silicon Valley tech-bro tribalism, our contributors take on the powers that be, igniting debates about privilege and control hotter than Hot Girl Summer. Can women perpetuate the patriarchy? Who are the biggest daddies in the art world today? How do you become a successful artist? Also featuring portraits of the late Jack Smith, Taiwanese-born cyberfeminist pioneer She Lea Cheang, and a group portrait of young artists fighting the extractive identity matrix, alongside a scrumptious hit of Schadenfreude care of “Dum Dum Boys” — because we’re not above the occasional punching up. With contributions by Peaches, Slavoj Žižek, Catherine Malabou, Renate Lorenz, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, Simone Fattal, and many more, and reviews from Guangzhou to Mexico City. Hate it, or really hate it, the patriarchy is is the target. Aim low.

During the last twenty years, artists, too, have engaged with the animal in an effort to articulate more “beastly” visions. How can animals as autonomous creative entities take possession of an unshackled imaginative space cut loose from the human? Beastly/ Tierisch has an innovative, visually daring design, superimposing a selection of artistic works onto a host of pictures from the Internet. This rich image material is supplemented by four essays: about animality and the history of photography (Duncan Forbes), the political and philosophical animal (Slavoj Žižek), the virtual zoo of the Internet (Ana Teixeira Pinto), and the changing identities of animals under anthropogenic pressures (Heather Davis).
