3/52 Words to Contemplate



Exiled in my own country...

Nach den Erfahrungen im Dritten Reich gab es ein kurzes Erwachen, eine Erkenntnis der Zusammenhänge. Diese Erkenntnis scheint längst wieder untergegangen zu sein. Heute ist man höflich, freundlich, pflegeleicht. Man tut seine Pflicht. Man ist desinteressiert, gestresst, überbelastet. Man schaut weg und schweigt. Man arbeitet sich zu tode, weil es sich so gehört, denn alle tun es. Wer den Widerspruch wagt und ihn lebt, hat im Prinzip nur einen Ausweg. Er darf ihn selbst wählen. Er hat zwar keine direkte Überlebenschance, aber er wird auch nicht direkt ermordet. Die Gesellschaft belächelt solche Leute, schiebt sie ab, der Staat kürzt ihre sozialen Leistungen und damit ihre Überlebenschance, aber sie werden nicht umgebracht. Noch nicht?

Haroldo Cajazeira Alves

Insisto gratuitamente em desenhar a lógica desta miragem da miragem, que é a escritura de Antônio Luiz M. de Andrade (Almandrade) . Miragem da miragem porque o sujeito Almandrade, faiscamento de rituais, marcas da instituição / arte “produz” uma escritura na garantia desta legitimidade. O pequeno escândalo anal em que este artista insiste, poderia não ser fascinante. Aliás, o teorema de Godel também. Andrade, como Godel, produz um saber sobre a impossibilidade de consistência de um sistema de signos. Godel teve como solo / texto / doxa, desmitologisar a prática de Frege e Russel; já Andrade tem como solo a ser desconstruido, o construtivismo. Contra o mapeamento higiênico do espaço significante que postulava o construtivismo. Propõe Almandrade uma máquina semiótica atravessada pelo desejo, pelo poder, pelo gratuito e pela loucura. Contra a lei da acumulação do construtivismo ele lança o desperdício.

O território artístico funciona de forma semelhante ao sintoma, ao sonho. O desejo social recalcado para ser realizado implica na instauração de compromisso com a ordem, com o sonho. O desejo pode ser realizado no sujeito e no espaço gramaticalizado pelo compromisso, na sociedade também, o espaço é uma gelatina desejante permitida. Andrade como Duchamp, instaura uma discussão sobre compromisso “sua arte gera um terror geométrico, que só se suporta como um riso”.

Armadilhas para Deus
Outro método tem os trabalhos. Tomam como ponto de discussão, não o real, mas sim o conjunto de dispositivos que garantem que uma representação seja vivida como real, verdadeira. Neste sentido nos oferecem coordenadas de um ponto inexistente.

Um pequeno livro lacrado com parafuso, e o seguinte título: “Conheça Lautréamont”. O olhar com seu sensualismo empírico se torna inoperante. O trabalho não sede ao mito da retina, exige, ao contrário, um cálculo, uma operação mental. O conde Lautréamont, sabemos, é o pseudônimo do autor dos “Cantos de Maldoror”. Esse escritor obsessivamente apagou todas as suas pegadas, assassinou o mito do autor.

Um livro sobre um acontecimento que é um puro enigma é um livro desejado, mas o problema é que esse livro está lacrado. Paradoxo: livro que propõe reconstituir um sentido através da interdição do mesmo. A interdição do sentido, a suspensão do sentido é, parece-me, uma situação impossível, ou mais especificamente uma situação mental. A ausência de sentido é um aparelho epistemológico através do qual podemos “observar” os buracos negros da linguagem, área utópica onde há o desejo de representar o real, onde a linguagem goza de seu próprio funcionamento.

Um outro trabalho: dois pedaços de madeira comprimem uma mola presa com arame. O mecanismo composto por esses elementos retém uma energia. Retenção inútil, como a criança exerce com as fezes e o afásico com as palavras. É evidente que uma máquina acumula energia, tensão, força, mas acumulação obedece a um processo teológico de deslocamento de energia retida em função de uma modificação de um acontecimento desejado. A máquina sem atrito reconhece a reta como o menor caminho entre dois pontos. Estranhamente esta máquina proposta por Almandrade não materializa um princípio teológico. Trabalha implosivamente, retendo força para o próprio gozo, como o halterofilista acumula músculos para o gozo do espelho / olho.

Sem dúvida é difícil pensar os trabalhos sem relacioná-los com o tecido cultural e seus produtos. Os trabalhos se ocupam, investem nessa massa de signos. Há, como tentamos “demonstrar”, uma operação de desconstrução do espetáculo reservado para os objetos de arte. Vimos a quebra do mito da retina, na medida em que os trabalhos mobilizam um envolvimento mental da parte do sujeito espectador.

Indagare il rapporto tra natura e cultura è una delle cifre distintive dell’indagine (non solo occidentale) che caratterizza la modernità: da quando infatti l’uomo è sulla terra, la dialettica tra stato di natura e modificazioni imposte all’ambiente è al tempo stesso un evento concreto e una fonte inesauribile di riflessione. Con la rivoluzione industriale ed i fenomeni di inurbamento massiccio che hanno contraddistinto gli ultimi due secoli tale dialettica si è innegabilmente spostata sempre più sul lato della cultura, e l’industria ha eroso gli spazi della natura in maniera massiccia, rendendo la natura una sorta di eden irraggiungibile, cui l’uomo sembra anelare, pur essendo il responsabile della sua drastica diminuzione.Nella città che cambia questo tema è quanto mai attuale, ed ovviamente microbo.net è interessato a come gli artisti – spesso capaci di leggere in filigrana o in anticipo sui tempi la realtà, grazie alla sensibilità che li contraddistingue – interpretino questo universale tema, in questo particolare momento storico.Quella che ne è sortita, grazie ai video presentati, è una visione mai banale, mai appiattita su un ingenuo roussovianesimo new age o su una acritica esaltazione della modernità, quanto piuttosto un’indagine che esplora la tematica in tutte le sue dimensioni, proponendoci visioni costruite a volte per sottrazione a volte per addizione, ma sempre interessanti ed aperte alla nostra interpretazione.
Aldo Torrebruno
Indagare la natura, al giorno d’oggi risulta un’operazione quanto mai rischiosa: il rapporto tra natura e cultura infatti risulta talmente intrecciato da rendere pressoché impossibile indagare un aspetto senza coinvolgere l’altro. Per questo l’idea su cui abbiamo chiesto ai videoartisti della nostra community di confrontarsi è composito: naturaindustriale, la natura che si modifica proprio per il fatto di essere in rapporto con qualcosa che natura non è, ma che anzi - solitamente - prospera proprio sulla distruzione dello stato di natura. Così l’indagine si estende in diverse direzioni, ed esplora in maniera intensiva ed estensiva questo rapporto intrecciato, fino a mostrarci uno spaccato, attuale e variegato, di letture possibili.

La natura è spesso nascosta, qualche volta sopraffatta, molto raramente estinta dice Sir. Francis Bacon, difatti ancor oggi in qualche modo ci soppravvive. L’artista odierno, che vive giocoforza in un mondo dove l’industrializzazione ha snaturato il suo rapporto con essa, come fosse uno sciamano, cerca di “riparare” al malfatto in maniera poetica o diretta e violenta, instaurando una relazione/riflessione tra sé e mondo circostante. Lo scenario è quello urbano: la città, il prodotto industriale, il prefabbricato, la fabbrica e le sue rovine divengono natura per tutti noi che non abbiamo mai abitato un mondo incontaminato.I riferimenti all’arte e a quegli artisti che hanno visto la natura con occhi nuovi, si ritrovano nel video di Serena Zanardi e Alessandro Marzola, dove una colazione sull’erba senza tempo e solo apparentemente poetica ci rimanda alla rottura radicale con il passato che troviamo nell’opera di Manet. Le azioni di Beuys in difesa della natura, trovano una rivisitazione nel video del gruppo sintetico e si mescolano a lavagne nere che indagano le conseguenze del progresso nel video di Rosita Uricchio e nell’operazione collettiva che si oppone al sistema di Annalisa Zarelli. Natura è anche proiezione del nostro corpo e Kishore Ghosh affronta questo attraverso segni neri dal presagio oscuro.Ciò che resta, ovvero una natura devastata dal nostro passaggio, viene osservato come un readymade da Federica Barcellona o “curato” affinché conosca una nuova vita da Paolo Baraldi, che con i suoi segni e gesti ridona un’estetica al luogo abbandonato.

Effluvia Recordings

(ER019) Pollux & Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt – A Brief History Of The End

What else can I say but this? “A Brief History Of The End” is among the most immensely profound and emotionally convicting splits i’ve yet heard in the netlabel supernova. After walking my shoes worn around foreign environments, I chose to take a day to relax and enjoy the splendor of hiatus. Passive in mind, thinking petite little musings. Then, like a heavenly hand from the puffy clouds on high, Arnaud Barbe of “Pollux”, who you know and love, submits this demo. A split collaboration between his addictive self and one of the most challenging and abstract musicians residing in our flourishing archives, Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt. An architect of perilous textures that exuberate the organic compounds of our life and the world from which it erupts. A constructor of otherwordly molds that provide a metaphysical ass spanking followed by affirmation. In what? Difficult to say. Such a cacaphonous ephipheny, his soundscapes. Chaotic, yet masterfully realized and shrewdly executed, revealing in a particularly eerie track the absurd mildew emissions of modern humanity. This accompanied with the all pervading emotional dissectors of Arnaud Barbe’s intuitive genius makes for an epic listening conquest. Deeply hypnotizing and intoxicating, the ambiant outings of Pollux are lambent universes of their own, luminated by awe and emotional sensitivity that unconditionally welcomes you to surrender in cerebral ebbing. These two musicians have utilized their respective crafts to design the vibes of the apocalypse. Not the world exploding back into stardust, but rather an armageddon inside. The revelations of what the end is, and how we hover over it always. This album screams. My day is passive no longer.

Hi Berlin
I'm Jimmy Trash. And I got a story for you.

As I was maxin' and relaxin' around a "dampfbad" full of sweating beautiful teenagers and hanging out doing soggy cocaine from the top of double-headed albino cobras, one of my "famous" friends asked me the question:

"Jimmy, Jimmy Trash, how are you going to make 'TRASHFEST 4' even more trashy than last year? You had live fucking on stage, a freakshow, free tattoos, INCREDIBLE BANDS, you even had a fight with your own band onstage and kicked out a member in the middle of a song....

"Well", I told them, glancing glassily into the eye of the cobra as I took another line from its golden scales, "Apart from the MONOLITHIC lineup this year that will include":


The Obsidians and the Mentalettes (doo wop a gogo!)

The Mokkers (trashettes!)

Everybody's favourite robot KRACH (BAVARIA!!!)



Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt
"composer of experimental sunburnt soundscapes and the accidental guitar technique"



DJS GOO BLUM (Paris) and DEAD GIRL (Hell)




"so" I say to my friends, naked, comfortable, peaking, covered in nothing but excessive pubic hair and teenagers, "even with all these amazing bands, I still have a trick up my sleeve to OUT-TRASH, OUT-HORROR, OUT-DISGUST all similar attempts to be the European KING OF TRASH..."

Experimental sound is a particular genre of music that is elusive to many; it is a genre where people explore sounds outside general rules of composition and assembly to create an unaccustomed type of music. This exhibition offers a discourse of experimental sounds via different forms of media incorporating sculpture, installation and film and is to challenge traditional sensibilities as to what quantifies as music.

Sculptor, performer and sound artist - “The object becomes the composition”.
Rod Cooper became interested in instrument building while completing his fine art degree in 1988 at Victoria College, Prahran campus.
The noisy construction environment of the metal sculpture workshop increased his awareness for the potential of visual sculptures to become musical objects. As a result, over the last two decades Rod has developed a distinctive instrument building and performance practice which he adapts for various contexts such as music festivals, within gallery installations and touring. The ongoing development of the artist’s metal craft skills has facilitated the creation of complex musical instruments that expand the physical relationship between the body, form and space. The realization for sculpture to define space through sound is the driving force behind his creative practice. The exploration of sonic form and physical form is more than coincidence the two are inextricably linked. His sound compositions come from the objects he builds. The Object becomes its own composition. Rodney has exhibited, toured and played extensively nationally and internationally with highly acclaimed reviews and performances from places as the National Gallery of Victoria, to being filmed and aired by ABC Television. Rodney also has several audio releases.

Drowner: (pictured)

floating never seemed so dangerous, so damn scary and sensual all at the same time, dreamPop yes, but what is whispered there are the come-ons from half seen reflections in your window, late winter evenings.

Patrik Torrson:

lo fi, barely there, overheard thoughts slip out from a crowded elevator


BoyPoP distored thru the most hazy electronica


A sound for when the war is just seconds over, when there is confusion about who won and who has been utterly defeated. This is the sound of the time before hope and just after despair.

Sunshine Factory:

This is the modern blues, the city blues, the machine blues all rusted and shiver sharp, why wait for the MBV reformation when there is the Sunshine Factory.

Occupy Museums! Speaking out in front of the Cannons

The game is up: we see through the pyramid schemes of the temples of cultural elitism controlled by the 1%. No longer will we, the artists of the 99%, allow ourselves to be tricked into accepting a corrupt hierarchical system based on false scarcity and propaganda concerning absurd elevation of one individual genius over another human being for the monetary gain of the elitest of elite. For the past decade and more, artists and art lovers have been the victims of the intense commercialization and co-optation or art. We recognize that art is for everyone, across all classes and cultures and communities. We believe that the Occupy Wall Street Movement will awaken a consciousness that art can bring people together rather than divide them apart as the art world does in our current time…

Let’s be clear. Recently, we have witnessed the absolute equation of art with capital. The members of museum boards mount shows by living or dead artists whom they collect like bundles of packaged debt. Shows mounted by museums are meant to inflate these markets. They are playing with the fire of the art historical cannon while seeing only dancing dollar signs. The wide acceptance of cultural authority of leading museums have made these beloved institutions into corrupt ratings agencies or investment banking houses- stamping their authority and approval on flimsy corporate art and fraudulent deals.

For the last few decades, voices of dissent have been silenced by a fearful survivalist atmosphere and the hush hush of BIG money. To really critique institutions, to raise one’s voice about the disgusting excessive parties and spectacularly out of touch auctions of the art world while the rest of the country suffers and tightens its belt was widely considered to be bitter, angry, uncool. Such a critic was a sore loser.

It is time to end that silence not in bitterness, but in strength and love! Because the occupation has already begun and the creativity and power of the people has awoken! The Occupywallstreet Movement will bring forth an era of new art, true experimentation outside the narrow parameters set by the market. Museums, open your mind and your heart! Art is for everyone! The people are at your door!

3:30 Meet at Liberty Park

ESPACIO CULTURAL RBC / octubre 2011 El sábado 1 de Octubre 2011 se desarrolló, dentro de la Segunda Temporada del ESPACIO CULTURAL RBC, el programa compuesto por la actuación del grupo teatral de Villa 25 de Agosto ¨25 TACOS EN AGOSTO¨ que presentó el programa a saber: ¨Homenaje a Don Verídico¨ y ¨Mujeres en comedia¨ la muestra de RODOLFO TORRES y en el ciclo de cine la película ¨EL CLUB DEL CLAN¨ (Argentina, 1964). Fue un evento muy gratificante para artistas y público donde desde el teatro con esas obras humorísticas, hasta la vieja película argentina del 64 renovó la memoria de muchos de los concurrentes como así también su sonrisa.. El ESPACIO, por el entorno donde desarrolla su acción, con el tiempo va demostrando que la apuesta ha sido válida y consistente, ya que el público al cual en primera instancia va dirigido, va creciendo en su interrelación con los eventos propuestos y lo enriquecen con una participación cada día más notorias.
