A tale of a muse: violence and politics… The drama is not only going on in Greece, Brussels or the Mediterrenean Sea but also at unexpected spots such as the last runway show of Rick Owens.
‘I think it says Kill Angela Merkel or something? Is that what it said? I don’t know because [...]

It’s A Bubble

Remember Bubbles? Well, whatever, we don’t want to say too much about this hypnotic new Aaron Rose-directed clip about the NYC art scene called “The Bubble”, other than the fact that it features a ton of creative people (aka his buddies) and has a strangely unique (and poetic, thanks to Kipling) [...]


New face of Céline is the legendary writer Joan Didion… As a tribute to Didion, Vogue U.S. has re-published one of her essays on self-respect from the year 1961.
“…To such doubtful amulets had my self-respect been pinned, and I faced myself that day with the nonplussed wonder of someone who has come across a vampire [...]

Blowing sound horns

Digital pioneer, musician and critic Jaron Lanier wins the annual Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. One Year after Snowden and 7000 years after the first computer I recommend listening to him blowing his sound horns.
A more comprehensive post including a video.


It’s the one Tumblr to end all Tumblrs: B4XVI, a blog established to document “an invisible conversation between hip hop and art before the 16th century” – happy Easter!


Andrei Tarkovsky’s intense films, though numbering only seven across his almost quarter decade career, have cemented his place as one of cinema’s master craftsmen. Meditative, intimate, and often opaque, the films lack nothing in compelling narrative nor symbolic density.  Those not fond of slower films can still wonder at his meticulous composition, baptized by [...]
