Plastic wrapped bodies in bizarre and quirky residency areas, chopped off penises or exploded faces are not only in the episodes of Twin Peaks. Luscious moments followed by madness may cause a body to be chopped into pieces.
‘Conditioned from birth as to what we are supposed to feel, and how to act accordingly, [...]


Excuse the terrible pun, but the works of the Haas Brothers demands irreverence, even the corny sort. Since officially opening in 2012, Nikolai and Simon Haas have produced a bizarre body of work that teeters between Louise Bourgeouis-Dr. Seussian surreality and everyday utility. Invoking a naive sensuality unbothered by the sexual and taboo, their work appears [...]

Cuts In The Middle

Now that the Internets have survived this and Sir William Benjamin Bensussen aka The Gaslamp Killer has recovered just fine from his insane scooter accident – it’s been a year, and see above -, he’s going to go crazy (as usual) at Berlin’s Gretchen tomorrow night. Wicked!


Indie animation mainstay since “My First Crush,” (2007), her plaintive ode to infatuation, Julia Potts has in the last seven years only grown as an artist. Her most recent offering, “The Event,”  places her wry melancholy and signature animal-like creatures into landscapes that merge live-action images of Montauk and hand-drawn animation.  The digitalized special effects [...]

Some months ago antievolutionist show girls of Adnan Oktar in Turkey were introduced to the world by Amsterdam based artitsts Pınar&Viola in Dazed Digital. What happens when an antievolutionist evolves, and turns into a hybrid being without even recognizing? See, evolution exists! Whilst claiming Darwin was wrong [...]


These images speak for themselves. Vice Magazine was on site the day it all kicked off.


Protests in Turkey are going on while the type of gas used by the police is constantly changing. First it was burning eyes, make one puke; then the one that hurts the skin… The last but not least is affecting the ability to think properly. Bring it on Mr. President!
The violence of the police increase. [...]

UK’s now-defunct Broadcast were busy putting together the OST for the movie entitled Berberian Sound Studio when singer Trish Keenan tragically died in early 2011. Her former band member James Cargill then “took Keenan’s recordings for the score and pieced together a gorgeous tapestry of sound that’s as serene as it [...]
