Can anyone be a member? Well actually no, not really. If they come with the right attitude and make the existing members of the band feel good, then yes, otherwise no. How do the band members decide if the new person makes them feel good? Because the band members know each other, their likes and dislikes, and because there's intimacy and trust between them.

It has a history of having its own vision on actual art and society and producing and showing work of local and international artists in a convivial context.
Hard to pin down the disciplines we are producing or presenting. Word says we are 'in between'. Which is at the same time complex, challenging and exciting. Works go from more sort of 'classical' formats like theatre, performance, dance, concerts, to more 'unconventional' projects like acupuncture of a building, a human library or artists that are digging a hole in the middle of the city during 10 days.
The tone of representation varies greatly. Some deliver their message or insight in glaringly humorous ways, whilst others do so more soberly with a reporting approach. Who are these buffoons who have in good humor mocked art movements? Who are the heretics that have astutely interpreted and presented the sociological workings of the art scene as well as the more distasteful conducts of behavior within the art system?
They may be overtly cynical and yes, some of them are perhaps a bit too much, but who gives a hoot—they're hilarious!

As consolidated as a book seems, each one consists of slumbering worlds, which, in the sense of an object with a body and soul, are waiting to get flipped through, to be looked at and read, felt and in its highest form, be transformed into the mind of the beholder and transmitted to the reader. Without this counterpart, a book is no more than some paper and ink. With a counterpart, books can go far beyond. But in which form? These objects, together with the corresponding books or book series are now presented to the public in a small circulating exhibition.

The 40 photographs show excrements of the black-headed earthworm, which aggressively ploughs through a cemetery in Zurich. The pictures of those fragile sculptures are contrasted with parts from the detailed descriptions of nuclear fission from the original book, a text by Darwin that explains the work of earthworms and a text by the artist, who describes his childhood in the atomic age as a son of an atomic engineer. The number 40 is in this compilation no accident: Tillessen took the pictures on his —rainy— fortieth birthday for one of his best friends to pay off his debts from a bet — as he wasn't a father of a big family like his father at the age of The design of the book in the book accentuates the biographical fission within the big context of the atomic age: At the end it's all about evolution.
Whether the personal is political or not, Tillessen drew 18 sketches in his Moleskine, which are all represented in this black and white Xerox-printed booklet.

The difficult and complex situation in Syria leads to a fragmentation of society into various isolated parts. Some of these parts seem to be in line with each other better than others. Sometimes it appears to be a unified. And then again it falls to pieces. Syria as concept has become a synonym for itself and all the questions that arise when the line is crossed: In order to understand the development in Syria we take a closer look at the Egyptian revolution and the struggle for information, media coverage and connectivity.
Battuta, Muhammed Radwan is an engineer, activist and social media entrepreneur from Cairo. He visualises and analyses the complexity and multiple layers of the Egyptian revolution, and its use of language on the basis of flyers, stickers, etc. Also, besides Facebook and Twitter, other transnational social media platforms with a simplified operation mode, such as Bambuser or Ushahidi, are used to promote identities and opinions. Battuta draws on his own experiences from the streets, digital spaces and the financial market. He links this to the opportunities of social media tools in times of transition and their field of application — a cultural landscape oscillating between representation and archive; one of his theses states that the speed of technical development is overtaking history.

In this temporal mandala, blank color frequencies space out and optically feed into black and white images of one love-making gesture which is seen simultaneously from both sides of its space and both ends of its time.
Color structure is linear-directional but implies a largely infinite cycle; light-energy and image frequencies induce rhythms related to the psychophysical experience of the creative act of cunnilingus. This interview includes excerpts of Paul Sharits films. G 12 mins 'I am not at all interested in the mystical symbolism of Buddhism, only in its strong, intuitively developed imagistic power. In a sense, I am more interested in the mantra because unlike the mandala and yantra forms which are full of such symbols, the mantra is often nearly pure nonsense — yet it has intense potency psychologically, aesthetically and physiologically.
Sword swallowers, lions, contortionists and acrobats made of wire were manipulated by the artist, re-creating delicate little circus acts.

They also established a collection of footage of the disaster and the reconstruction efforts. Additionally, Corner College will be exhibiting two related slide projections in the windows. The site-specific installations will be running over Christmas time including December 26, the 8th anniversary of the Indian Ocean Boxing Day tsunami.

Rouzbeh Rashidi and Jann Clavadetscher consider the flittering black and white ghosts and shadows that he left in his wake in their phantasmagorical experimental feature film. This journey through a cinematic night probes the very essence of the cinematic image. Atlantik Film Jann Clavadetscher: A match was struck and for this short moment audience and cinema became one.
