The second issue of the isthisit? magazine is 96 pages and composed of artworks, essays, interviews and one podcast, considering memes and appropriation on the internet. In the United States 2016 presidential election, memes are said to have played a fundamental role, with individuals on 4chan claiming that they were responsible for Donald Trump's rise to power due to the amount of memes that were created and shared on a daily basis. This issue of the magazine hopes to consider the power of the meme, it's rise in contemporary culture and the widespread appropriation of images and videos being utilised, both in memes and artworks.
