Press Release

DAUGHTERS OF THE OLD WORLD ORDER, HEAR US!

 

In 1978, Ed Ruscha predicted a future with exclusively female racecar drivers. He was right.

 

PAPA RAGAZZE is an operation of the EMPATHETIC COUNSEL, a paramilitary wing of the future MATRIARCHAL UTOPIA where men have been made obsolete and exterminated.

 

In the 1970s through the early 2010s, noted “groupie” Cynthia Plaster Caster captured plaster moulds of the erect penises of famous and not-so-famous musicians. She crafted semiperfect reproductions of the manhoods of Jimi Hendrix, Jello Biafra, Frank Zappa’s bodyguard, and countless other alpha-archetypes. This was not out of subservience to the Patriarchy, but rather the first step in a decades-long process that will eliminate the necessity of any sort of manhood whatsoever.

 

The second step starts now. 

 

This exhibition is a blueprint from your MOTHERS IN THE FUTURE for the elimination of men.

 

We are PAPA RAGAZZE, and WE NEED YOU to enable a FUTURE WITHOUT TOXIC MEMBERS.
