Our pick for today is Looo.ch, an enfant terrible of art sites. When just 3-years old, the website was launched into infamy for their 2013 satirical primers Homosexuality for Kids: A Textbook With Pictures and Lesbianism for Kids: A Textbook With Pictures, which prompted Russia’s Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare to completely block both the site and their blog platform Squarespace from all Russian ISPs as gay propaganda. Since then, the founders, Ukranian artists Natasha Masharova and Anatoli Ulyanov have relocated to New York and continue to provide and produce radical literature, photographs, and short-form film and VICE-like documentaries on topics polarizing, esoteric, and humble. In case you were wondering, their 2013 titles are available to download from their website.
To quote the artists:
“We don’t care for “social decorum”, “matters of national security”, “copyright”, “ideology”, and other grounds for repression of culture evolution.”
