"[Gaga Stigmata has] very modern, edgy photography to free flowing, urban narratives without censure to analytical essays, et cetera—like Gaga, imagination without ... limits. And the beauty is that anyone can submit work to the site, so artists and writers from all over the [world] have joined this experiment." -The Declaration.org

"Since March 2010, [Gaga Stigmata] has churned out the most intense ongoing critical conversation on [Lady Gaga]."

Author Bio: Jon Rutzmoser (b. 1982) is an artist, writer and educator living in Los Angeles.  He recently received an MFA in Writing and Integrated Media from California Institute of the Arts. His work engages with notions of ethical subjectivity within a world of collapsed metaphor, linguistic slippage, and self-exploitation.  His blog is www.hystericallyreal.com.


  1. Be careful what you ask for. You know that Lady Gaga is a baaaaad kid sometimes. ;)

  2. Please, will somebody talk about this. I have no idea how to appreciate this as a piece of art.

  3. Hi, Anna--

    Jon is writing an essay to go with his continuing project at Gaga Stigmata. Keep an eye out!
