Roman Signer
Roman Signer

I was yesterday at the Roman Signer exhibition in Zurich. If you don't know Roman Signer yet you have missed something. Signer, coming from the country side in East Switzerland, makes short videos about events (so he calls it). For sure Swiss art at its best.

Our dearest Canadian Writer Matt Prins has a new project, called Instant Books:

1) to copy the instantaneous and often shite style of blogs and transfer it onto paper, 2) to slow down and make something more “artful” of instantaneous and shite writing, and 3) to force out new material, rather than re-editing the old.

And for your enjoyment, an educational video about hot dogs.

Barack Obama
Barack Obama

Europe just has waked to Barack Obama's historical acceptance speech from Chicago. And I can't think of anything better to happen to this world. A world that feels heavier each day you watch the news, for a long time now. The feeling of helplessness against the power of large corporations and old establishments.
It feels there is again space to breathe. To restore faith into democracy, a term which has gained such negative assumptions through recent events. To believe again into common sense... education, health care. In the States, in Africa and around the globe. This is the revolution always hoped for, a revolution without revolution.
