Mondongo are an Argentinian art collective consisting of Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso, who founded Mondongo 1999, are not only partial to the stew, but make their work from a „cauldron“ of ingredients: 

We’ve used a huge variety of materials in our art, depending on what best reinforces the concept oft he work. It’s always a process of experimentation until we finish it.

The amount of work Mondongo put into each piece is extensive, and both intricate and beautiful. They are literally paintings without paint using such materials as thread, beads, plasticine, cookies, and glitter, to name of few. Production is slow and deliberate as the material and concept are intricately jelled: the materials used as metaphorical adjuncts to the concepts.

What advice do you have for a 14 year old girl? from Anonymous

porn4smartgirls:

This is so vague I love it. The voices you are hearing are real, god is speaking to you. The nation of France needs you. Don your armor, take up arms, lead the French army. This is your destiny, joan. When the flames come for you let them lick your bones and laugh.


I have no love for America. I have no patriotism … I desire to see the government overthrown as speedily as possible and its Constitution shivered in a thousand fragments.

— Frederick Douglas, declaimed in a lecture to the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1847 (via danielu92)

Why should kids be taught to hate the police? Because there are 2.3 million people in jail in the US right now and every single one was put there by a fucking cop. Some people talk about good cops and bad cops, but a good cop, a cop doing their job properly, still puts nonviolent drug users in jail for many years, totally ruining their lives as they lose their jobs, houses, cars, romantic partners, access to college, and become substantially less employable upon release. A cop doing their job properly still gives homeless people tickets for vagrancy which they obviously can’t pay and when a warrant is issued as a result an officer doing their job properly arrests those homeless people. An officer doing their job properly peppersprays and arrests environmental protesters so that logging companies can clear-cut old growth forests. An officer doing their job properly is evicting a family from their home as you read this because the parents’ jobs were shipped overseas so that the bosses could make eight figures a year instead of seven. Those people will become homeless, vagrancy tickets will be written, warrants will be issued… And then there’s the “bad ones”.

the personal as political →

returnthegayze


if the personal is political then is there any part of my body that does not belong to the movement?

can my lung breath for itself or must it also gasp for the revolution?

do my feet walk for themselves or are they only preparing for the march?

does this brown exist outside of struggle?

does this queer matter if it’s no longer transgressive?

this gender if it can no longer dissent?

if the personal is political then i wonder if the revolution asked for consent

i wonder if i gave it the first time i picked up a microphone and pronounced ‘PAIN’ and the papers reported ‘POLITICS’
the next day


and i wonder if there are politics without pain these days?


when we must use our tongues as knives and scrape off all of the color, all of the violence and place them in petri dishes for you to consume
like soundbytes,

like each piece of me is an intersection for your theory,

like all we are is a constellation of trauma
and quotes and broken


if the personal is political then do i own these samples?

do i own the pain?

do i own myself?

or is this the reward for the job completed:

how many tears i make you shed

how many paradigms i make you shift

if the personal is political then how many hours
can i sleep tonight? how many boys should i kiss?
how many lies must i tell?

until i prove myself activist
or rather

prove myself boring

prove myself happy


if the personal is political than can we be happy

when our politics resemble the nightmares

we are trying so desperately to wake from?


if the personal is political then will you love me

when i turn off my phone? will you forgive me if i
am late to work? will you respect me if i miss the meeting?

will i matter if i am incapable of crying?

will i matter if i am incapable of bleeding?


do we matter if we are incapable at all?

From Still Life with Woodpecker:
'Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words “make” and “stay” become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.' View Larger

Mary Oliver reads Wild Geese →

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
