Autonomy, Groupthink, and the Power of the Deep State

Artists, creatives and thinkers are invited to submit work in any medium, including video, performance, urban intervention, sound, critical writing, new media and online projects, and even unrealized works, to be considered for inclusion in Autonomous Agency’s first online publication. Please send work that relates to the theme below.  Website:


The “Deep State” in politics is a state within a state of unelected officials and special interest lobbyists working alongside security officials that influence policies in the government. This call will take into consideration work that takes a critical look at the function of the deep state, government propaganda, or manipulative, polarizing and fear-based party politics. Works that consider intersectionality and bring awareness to socially constructed hierarchies and the interconnectedness of various expressions of oppression and bigotry, such as racism, classism, sexism, ableism, ageism, homophobia, and even speciesism, are especially welcome.

Groupthink empowers the Deep State, and autonomous agents create possibilities  ~
