FICTILIS is the independent art and curatorial studio of Andrea Steves and Timothy Furstnau. They are currently visiting scholars at the Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School in New York City. They have previously been visiting artists and fellows in a variety of contexts, including art, design, history, anthropology, and museum and curatorial studies. Their collaborative projects often take the form of exhibitions, installations, and publications, with ongoing interests in language and taxonomy, the process and politics of collecting, archiving, and display, monuments and memorials, public space and memory, materialisms and waste flows, infrastructure and the built/non-built environment, critical sustainabilities, and the nexus of the social and ecological. In 2015 FICTILIS founded the Museum of Capitalism, an institution dedicated to educating this and future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of capitalism, through exhibitions, research, publication, collecting and preserving material evidence, art, and artifacts of capitalism, and a variety of public programming.
