Mashacare: Home of the Freaks, Misfits, & Weirdos
This Lookbook draws upon the Mashacare SS19 Collection and uses sci-fi
narratives to construct an imaginary floating city named after Surazhsky’s
Babushka, Masha. Mashacare exists in a post-glacial future that Molly
Surazhsky has created and fashioned clothing for, as a way to envision
the inhabitants of a matriarchal and post-capitalist reality.

Reflexive Sociology Paris Workshop
Impetu No.1 brings together work by a group of Los Angeles-born and
raised Latinx-Xicanx artists, illustrators, and researchers, invited by
LACA to experiment with collectivity and fugitivity to contribute to new
forms of cultural imagery. The group consists of Geani Sanabria,
Yair Sarmiento, Rosalinda Meza, Aaron Edmundo, Ezequiel Olvera,
Pablo Fernando, Efren Landeros, and Eduardo Robles.
The quarterly magazine will explore themes and concepts initiated
through informal discussion, affective exchange, workshops, and
risographic printing sessions. For issue No.1 Tianguis Místico, the
collective’s subjective pluralities constellate notions of self-nurture,
futurity, cosmology, transcendence, and eroticism through
compulsive détournement, drug-induced scribbling, meditative
jotting, lucid drawing, and satire cartooning.
Bread Story: Some research for an oncoming film, 2019
Based on the script “The Bread-King Learns to Bake Bread”
by Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956) and Prancha’s experiences with
LA baker Roxana Jullapat. The concurrent narratives of Brecht and
Jullapat create the structure for the book and the film.
The book consolidates research into ideas of American labor and
production from 1941 to today and functions as an unconventional
script for the film in progress. The series of printed materials uses
LACA’s Risograph printing technique to mass produce an iteration
of the original book in order to disseminate information and
participate in a level of production associated with propaganda
Edition of 25+5 A.P.
L.E.H.M. (Le Corbusier Entering
Hadrian’s Mausoleum, 1965) is an accompaniment to a collage based lecture. Conceived of as a
bibliography and surrogate for the talk, the publication contains Post It notes, along with the script.
L.E.H.M. is a transhistorical fiction recounting how Le Corbusier became the heir to Emperor
Hadrian. Drawing parallels between Hadrian’s classicist architecture and Le Corbusier’s
Modernist proposal for colonial Algiers, the lecture makes connections between the two
architectural forms and the legacy of imperialism from Classical to Modernist thought.
