La Movida. Or the need for countercultural movements

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:08:11 +0000

In this age of Brexit and shortsighted nationalism, of austerity and politicians pinning for the crucifixion of abortion, same-sex marriage and freedom of movement, an exhibition that breathes hedonism and transgression is not just amusing, it is also necessary because it compels us to reflect on the fights we fought, won and lost again. On the values and rights we should never take for granted

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 16:02:29 +0000

The booklet’s manifesto calls for design (or art) that gets out of the sleek graduation shows and galleries, confronts sociopolitical issues head-on and bites back. As he sums up, “Design can be how to punch Nazis in the face, minus the punching"

Over the past couple of years, Maria Roszkowska, Clément Renaud and Nicolas Maigret from DISNOVATION.ORG have been quietly smuggling odd-looking phones from China to Europe. They’ve got a phone that doubles up as a stun gun, one that’s shaped like a big strawberry, one you can use to light up your cigarette, one that will assist you in your religious rituals, etc.

Socle du Monde Biennale – The geometries

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 14:57:23 +0000

Socle du Monde, the oldest Danish biennale is one of the most aesthetically pleasing art events i’ve attended over the past few years. But because the event is inspired by the masterpiece of a renowned exponent of conceptual art, it is also a biennale that conveys ideas, provocations and moments for reflection. I’ll get back next week with a post discussing these ideas and provocations but right now, here are some visual impressions of the biennale

Economia Festival. Consumerism, crabs, automation, and other insights by non-economists

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 09:16:04 +0000

The festival's rallying cry was that time had come to discuss the economy without inviting the economists to the table. The videos of the keynotes are online and i'd like to highlight 2 of them: Frank Trentmann‘s chronicle of the consumerist society and Geerat Vermeij‘s theory about how a closer study of biological ecosystems can teach us more about the economy than we might suspect

EE #2 moves Beyond Nature, investigating experimental and emerging ways of understanding as well as making art/nature.
