Theorist BENJAMIN BRATTON joins NM to discuss his newest book, The Revenge of the Real: Politics for a Post-Pandemic World (Verso, 2021), which reflects on human society’s capacity for sensing and calibrating to the the vicissitudes of an increasingly turbulent Earth—and innovatively governing in turn. In this first segment of a two-episode release (Pt. 2 forthcoming for NM subscribers), Bratton talks individualism, globalism, planned economies, desire paths, clouds, and nation states. https://www.versobooks.com/books/3787-the-revenge-of-the-real For more: http://www.bratton.info/ https://www.instagram.com/benjaminbratton https://www.twitter.com/bratton https://soundcloud.com/newmodels/episode-15-remote-port-benjamin-bratton-busta-keller-lilinternet

Architect and writer KELLER EASTERLING joins New Models to speak about her recent book "Medium Design: Knowing How to Work on the World" (Verso, 2021), which invites us to expand our thinking about infrastructure from one of discrete things to the messy, polyvalent relations and conditions they share. Along the way we touch on the potentials of Web3 and ramifications of small changes at scale. / This conversation is presented as part of Stolbun Institute's inaugural season, "Shadowlands." For more: https://kellereasterling.com https://www.versobooks.com/books/3245-medium-design https://stolbun.institute is a new initiative from Seth Stolbun & the Stolbun Collection for coordinating cultural content across outlets in the face of an increasingly atomized media landscape.
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 we hope to seed in the coming months. Relatedly, the conversation comes out of discussions we’ve had with Seth Stolbun, who, this month, is soft-launching STOLBUN.INSTITUTE, a new project from the Stolbun Collection aimed at coordinating cultural content across outlets in the face of an increasingly atomized media landscape.

What creates VALUE in ART and what makes art actually valuable over time? Why are some images powerful while others, just expensive? Why did DAN buy a Twerky Pepe? On this ep, we speak with writer and art critic ANDREW RUSSETH about the closing of NYC GALLERY METRO PICTURES, its generational importance and how it emerged during a media shift that in many way parallels our own. Plus: BUFFET HACKING, GATEKEEPING, and a GENEALOGY of BEEPLE. Also featuring: LIL INTERNET’s COMPLETE breakdown of the GRAMMY AWARDS 2021 For more: https://twitter.com/AndrewRusseth http://andrewrusseth.com/about.html https://www.metropictures.com/viewing-room/before-metro Theme music: Alfred English, "NPC Valley," 2018
Before there was Instagram, there was Mark Hunter, AKA, THE COBRA SNAKE, who made his name photographing the alt party scene of the ‘00s and relaying this coverage to his blog before people’s hangovers could even hit. In turn, thecobrasnake.com, along with American Apparel and Vice, became canon for high hipsterdom. For older Millens, it also came to represent an era when signs, language, and social protocol operated quite differently than they do in the ‘20s. With Mark now making a book from his early-Y2Ks archive—Cobrasnake: All Yesterday's Parties (forthcoming from Rizzoli in 2022)—New Models chatted with him about his work past and present and the changing terms of “social" media.

NM speaks with Baltimore artist and filmmaker Thomas Faison who was on the ground in Washington, DC during the January 6th siege on the US Capitol, and documented the day's events.

We speak with ARTHUR JONES & GIORGIO ANGELINI, filmmakers of "FEELS GOOD MAN," which tells the story of comic artist Matt Furie and the wild journey of his character Pepe the Frog. Yet this set up is also a lens for telling an even broader and deeper story of the past two decades: one that spans intergenerational communication, magic and media, anti-authoritarian rebellion, and the volatility of signs. The documentary comes out August 28 to select audiences (and Sept. 4 everywhere). We nominate it Political Film of the Year.

We are joined by UC Davis professor of literature and critical theory, JOSHUA CLOVER, who is also a communist and the author of several books including RIOT STRIKE RIOT: THE NEW ERA OF UPRISINGS (Verso, 2016). This conversation begins with the street protests that have erupted across the US in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many other black Americans at the hands of the police. It then expands to encompass digital platforms, definitions of violence and property, the promise of communes, and the caveats of UBI, giving a trans-historical view of revolutionary resistance at the hinge points of political transformation. For more: https://english.ucdavis.edu/people/jclover https://www.versobooks.com/blogs/4734-66-days https://www.versobooks.com/authors/2018-joshua-clover Clarification: At 21:55, Clover refers to the Civil Rights Act (re the 1968 MLK Jr. riots). This is technically accurate, and it was officially known as the Civil Rights Act of 1968. But that risks confusing it with the far more well-known Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is why the 1968 act is more popularly know as the Fair Housing Act.
We speak with High Snobiety editor-in-chief, THOM BETTRIDGE about content production, retail circulation, and celebrity in 2020.

@baojiaxiang’s “Prelude to SimSociety: Low-Poly NPC Background Music” mix is the first NMNM (New Models New Music) release. "Consider the human, given the choice to consider at all. They want to say “look at this! We’ve never seen anything like it!” With each iteration of increasing complexity, each new motion in what appears to be an accelerating machine that rebuilds itself and engineers new expansion, they want to tell me I haven’t seen it before, yet every time I look even superficially at a historical event, I see it again. I see the same thing, over and over. I won’t argue anything here, that’s for another place, another time. Details are deserving of those who decide to attend. Here, on Soundcloud, I just want to point out that you’re indistinguishable from me, that I’m indistinguishable from nature, technology, anything really. Who draws the line between anything, virtual and real, philosophical and scientific, political and personal? The revelation was that there is no line, or that a line cannot be drawn, or that the very idea of a line renders the entire practice...impractical. Assume responsibility! In pure confidence, arrogance probably, I’d like to conclude myself as ourselves, we, all of us, this, God, all of it, again and again, just a reminder that this has happened before, is happening now, and will continue to happen with our without our consent.” - bod [包家巷] (@baojiaxiang) ///// "New Models: SimSociety” feat. Joshua Citarella & Cade Diehm took place as part of Mary Audrey Ramirez & Lukas 8K’s “QT, UR, EA” curated by Madalina Stanescu at Trauma Bar und Kino, Berlin, 23 January 2020.
