Streetartdoku: Walls that Speak

Streetartdoku: Walls that Speak

Auf dem Al Jazeera YouTube Account gibt es derzeit die Streetartdoku: “Walls That Speak”, über die Geschichte der künstlerisch gestalteten Stadtmauern von Beirut. Geschichtsträchtig, schön anzusehen und interessant.

The walls of Beirut talk volumes about the city and its habitants. Many of the city’s bullet-scarred walls are covered in words, drawings, signs, slogans and graffiti art. They offer a glimpse both of a vibrant and emerging art culture as well as the abiding dark force of political sectarianism.

Rutherford Chang macht das “White Album” der Beatles zum Kunstprojekt

BeatlesWhiteAlbum

Der Künstler Rutherford Chang sammelt das “White Album” und stellt seine mittlerweile mehr als 650 Ausgaben in einem New Yorker Record Store aus. Keines der Exemplare kann man käuflich erwerben, dafür kauft Chang gern weitere Exemplare an. Wie es klingt, wenn er 100 mal die 1. Seite der Platte abspielt, kann man auf Soundcloud hören.

Ein Interview mit Chang gibt es auf DustandGrooves.com

Light Emitting Dudes – LED Freerunning

“Light Emitting Dudes takes a team of freerunners, geared up from head to toe with LED lights, and sets them loose on the streets of Bangkok at night. With acrobatic grace, they carved up the already buzzing nightlife spots while adding their own flair and colour to the mix.”

Capital Waste – Tasty!

“The bold claim the feedery has made with this mural is an accurate one and the punks down at Capital Waste were more than happy to come down and do their thing while the cans clicked and the lads worked. These sonic jams were brought to you by No Birds from the good people at Adelaide’s own, Pilot Records. Suss the following and then head down to Pearl’s to check it out yourself and have a Tasty munch.”

Beerdigung der Instrumente

So ziemlich jeder Musiker, egal ob Hobby- oder Berufsmusiker, hat das ein oder andere Instrument sterben sehen müssen. Ruth Ewan hat sich im Rahmen eines Kunstprojektes, dem Sterben der Instrumente gewidmet und ein eindrucksvolles Video ihrer Installation produzieren lassen.

“From late August through December 2012 Kunsthal Charlottenborg is staging an exhibition by the Scottish artist Ruth Ewan. One major element is a unique collection of contemporary musical instruments to which the artist has invited members of the public to contribute. Ewan has often explored the role of music within alternative culture, and this is reflected in the utopian orchestra that has been assembled especially for her exhibition at Charlottenborg, and which performed using instruments from the collection. The Peat Bog Boorach Band – ‘boorach’ means ‘a muddled crowd or collection’ in old Scots – featured an eccentric mix of young amateur and professional musicians. During the opening days of the exhibition the band created a series of performances at a number of venues across Copenhagen, including Højbro Plads, Christiania and Charlottenborg. This extraordinary series of events concluded with the band dropping their chosen instruments into a lake, in an event echoing prehistoric burial techniques. The lake is projected to become a future peat bog and the burial is intended to preserve the instruments for the future. This film documents these events.”
