THE SOUND OF KICKING LEAVES

Another beautiful poster for a another great opportunity to see The Pastels live, after their latest LP ‘Slow Summits’ was in heavy rotation this summer. This time as support of the German electro-pop quartet Lali Puna.
In order to get attuned, with the perfect autumn soundtrack…

MONO.KULTUR #35: MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ

Dear Friends,
it is safe to say that Marina Abramović is one of the most controversial, provocative and polarising contemporary artists practising today, which is already in itself no mean feat – and all the more reason we’re so excited to have her grace the pages of our new issue #35, out as of now.

ALTERNATIVES IN PRINT: DAY JOB MAGAZINE

For all of you who feel like your job is pointless or lame, doomed to vanish in the rising tide of white collars and blue chips…well maybe it might be, but Day Job Magazine doesn’t care.  A rather sociological songbook for the unsung heroes of everyday life started in 2012, it features utomechanics, barbershops, calligraphers, and [...]

GILDA, ARE YOU DECENT?

It is crucial to choose the right topic while procrastinating. Old movies, especially Rita, Ginger and Fred would be the ones to cure the Sunday/Monday blues with their charm and dances!

MONO.KULTUR #35 / SOUNDBITE 03

Coming up next week (and it’s a hard one): mono.kultur #35.

BROKE FOR NONE

Broken Fingaz -Graffiti Stop Motion from Broken Fingaz on Vimeo.
So I was minding my own business on Warshauer…you know, just loitering…when a blast of fuchsia and chartreuse, conjoined in the oscillating razor gaze of a floating beheaded B(e)ard grabbed my eye.  This looks even better than it sounds.  Then today, I was looking out [...]
