Congratulations to our friends at Lodown for their 100th (& final) issue. Over two decades of independent publishing… chapeau!

COMMUNITY ART

After decades of implied politics within his work, Wolfgang Tillmans has taken a refreshing and more outspoken position that addresses political issues head on: first turning his gallery space Between Bridges in Berlin into a temporary ‘meeting place’ to discuss the refugee crisis: ‘From this month Between Bridges wants to be a forum, however small; [...]

BLOCKBUSTER FAIL

The German blockbuster-directer Roland Emmerich has just released a trailer for his new movie Stonewall, and it’s been already discussed controversially, particularly about its lack of authenticity. Just to quickly recap: The Stonewall Riots were a series of protests in 1969 against the police by the LGBT community in New York after a police raid in [...]

KÜTMAAN

As an asylum seeker, one is already othered, lives in hard conditions whilst waiting for one of the basic rights to be approved: the freedom of movement.

REVEAL AND RELIEF

It is interesting – scary, as well – how power interprets certain things and engenders the ‘truth’(!). Recently, London police arrested street artist Banksy on the charge of ‘graffiti, public vandalism, criminal mischief, public indecency, resisting arrest, money laundering, criminal conspiracy and racketeering’. Beyond that, the police department revealed the artist’s identity with photos of him [...]

QUIET COMING

“Wildcat is a state of mind; an experiment inspired by the composition and performance of jazz music.
The characters that populate this world are actual – cowboys; and envisioned – angels.
The town they all inhabit is real – Grayson, Oklahoma.”
2012 gave us “Until the Quiet Comes”, the pithy collaboration between filmmaker Kahlil Joseph and musician Flying Lotus. Its [...]
