False Flags combines experimental and unconventional modes of criticality with an explicit form of experiential social research: the performance of the disruption economy (i.e., the gig economy; i.e., the post-post-capital economy). The blog understands research as a form of creative production, and will feature commentary on the perversions of twenty-first-century visual culture under duress from other twenty-first-century precarities.
