The self-described “Brexit hardman” said: “I think we should now be willing to repudiate the whole treaty on the basis of the EU’s bad faith. “Which in my mind is undoubted.” Indeed, these efforts bring to mind [Thomas] Kuhn’s account of attempts to accommodate mounting anomalies to salvage an interpretive paradigm in danger of crumbling under a crisis of authority.

FIAC 2020 Cancelled

Brothers and sisters,

We have formed the London Bus Drivers Rank-and-File Safety Committee to wage a fight for the protection of our lives against the spread of COVID-19.

Like our brothers and sisters in the NHS, on the railways and London Underground, in supermarkets and food processing, warehouse and logistics, we have worked on the “frontline” during this pandemic. But despite the phoney tributes to key workers from politicians and the media, we are not “all in this together.” Our lives are viewed as more expendable than the diesel in the buses. Our bodies are exhausted from working long and dangerous back-to-back shifts that leave us vulnerable to infection and death. Drivers previously shielded due to underlying health conditions are being forced back to work, even as infection rates across England double each week.

We say: Our lives and safety are non-negotiable! Our loyalty is not to the billionaire shareholders who own the major transport companies but to our fellow workers, their families, and the travelling public whose lives are being endangered through corporate negligence. Nothing will change unless we decide to change it, and for this to happen we must act as one!

The London Bus Drivers Rank-and-File Safety Committee resolves to fight for the following immediate demands:

• Immediate on-site testing and contact tracing for all staff at the garage. All staff required to self-isolate must be paid a full wage.

• No more cover-ups! Immediate disclosure of all infections as soon as the company is informed, with immediate notification to drivers by SMS and company app.

• No victimisations! All staff must be free to speak out on safety concerns and to share information with their colleagues, including on social media, without management and union reprisals.

The situation we confront is being replicated around the country in workplaces, factories, offices and schools.

Dear Merlin,

My name is artist run space, based in Athens Greece.

I found it worth writing to you about a project we are developing with Lipsmacking Company, for 2021 and thought you may be interested in supporting what we want to do in Athens and we hope you have some time to consider it.

Being a small organisation but with a considerable impact in the local art scene, we were invited by Kickstarter, which just launched in Greece, to create a fundraising campaign for this project.

Our will is to bring the collective in Athens and to make an Anti- Fashion Show in the Athenian streets and an installation in space.

The campaign will run for 10 more days and we still have much to achieve.

We really hope you find this project interesting.
We would be more than happy if you can support this collective effort to bring Lipsmacking Company in Athens and share it with people who may be interested in their work.

We would be very happy to hear your thoughts on this and
Thank you a lot for your time in advance.

Best Regards,

Some small investors did hold onto their bitcoin, adopting the “HODL” mantra, which stemmed from a 2013 post where a user misspelled his intent to keep “hodling” bitcoin instead of “holding” it. For instance, Morrissey, a London-based musician, saw her cryptocurrency portfolio lose 70-80% soon after buying into the sector in January 2018. She held onto the assets until June this year, when values were a fraction of the prices she paid. Morrissey expressed regret about selling too early, but has started buying crypto again in recent weeks after reading that bigger companies have entered the market. She’s focused on smaller virtual coin, hoping this time will be different. “When I invested in 2017 there was a lot of talk of a crash coming,” she said. “It feels like times have changed.”

My petition:

Protect Free Speech - Do not use the Covid Pandemic to criminalize Free Speech.

Protect the right to express an opinion in public without being prosecuted, penalised or censored. The Covid19 pandemic should not be used to subjugate freedom of speech, including freedom to discuss, criticise, and debate the proposed Covid19 vaccine and the governments response to the pandemic.

Freedom of speech makes it possible for individuals to be able to communicate freely and also freely discern the communications shared. Selecting representatives of organisations (i.e. the state, social media platforms) to dictate what is to be communicated as information, versus what is to be censored as misinformation, could become a strategy of political rhetoric used to control a biased narrative. Attempts to criminalise free speech is a dangerous road towards tyrannical government.

New regulations applying to art market practices in the EU
The government has introduced new anti-money laundering measures which will affect all art dealers, galleries and their clients as of 10th January 2020. This is an EU wide legislation to which the UK abides irrespective of Brexit. It is anticipated that similar legislation will be introduced by the US government in the near future.

As part of these obligations and before the completion of any sale, we are legally obliged to carry out identification and checks on all clients buying from our gallery - both new and existing. These checks are similar to those carried out by banks and have already been put in place by the major international auction houses.

For individuals, a copy of a valid photo identity document such as a passport, driving license or national ID card which confirms their full name, date of birth or permanent residential address is required. For companies, we will require company details including evidence of incorporation, directors and the ultimate beneficial owners.

Payments received by the gallery will have to be received from a bank account held in the name of the person or entity named on the invoice. In the event that you wish for a third party to pay for a purchase on your behalf, due diligence has to be carried out for the owner of said account and we will not be able to accept any funds until we have satisfactorily established the identity of their source in line with the new legal requirements.

Please understand that we are legally obliged to do this for all our clients, even those with whom we have dealt in the past. We assure you that the information which you provide to us will be held and processed in accordance with our privacy policy and will remain secure and confidential at all times.

we would be honored if you stopped by for some or all! The art market demonstrated a kind of resilience that seemed to mock the very real panic and fear pervading the fragile and slowly healing global economy. The essence of an asset class is not the ability to make a profit from owning the asset (though that is obviously a powerful motivation.) The option to sell even when times are bad and maybe for prices that are not as strong as what was previously paid—in other words, to get some of your money out—that also makes an asset attractive to a buyer. To preserve that option, there has to be another buyer who will come along behind you. With the emergence these last four years of a broader, more valuable market with a wider range of buyers looking for a wider range of artists, we may have finally reached the stage where art is behaving like an asset.

“You don't currently have permission to access this folder” usually strikes Windows 10 users after upgrading the system to Windows 10 from older OS, mainly Windows 7.[1] The error prevents the PC owner from accessing, renaming or deleting files and folders even if he or she is signed into Windows 10 with an administrator account.

In some rare cases, people managed to fix the problem by deselecting “Read Only” option, which can be found by right-clicking on the folder and opening Properties. Unfortunately, but this solution helped for few people only. The others reported that after deselecting “Read Only” option they received the other error message – “Access is denied.”

The “You don't currently have permission to access this folder” is a problem, which is similar to “Error 0x80007005. Access is denied.” The culprit of the issue is related to the changes initiated during the process of upgrade to Windows 10. “You don't currently have permission to access this folder” error:

We live in a rural area. We have a septic system, our own well water, wood burning stoves, pellet stoves, oil heat on back up, and several weeks worth of food and supplies. Worst case scenario there is a creek at the edge of our property and we can use gas to boil the water. None of my immediate family rely on regular medication prescriptions. We have lots to do at the house if the Internet goes down. Our kids can be home schooled as necessary. We will be fine on those counts as long as everyone around us stays calm.

But if we lose our jobs or need to open our doors to more family due to them losing jobs, or we’re put on an extended quarantine program that mandates limited social contact, things will get uncomfortable. We’re very much on a wait and see level right now. I also know that not everyone around us is set up the same way and we may need to prepare for additional charitable giving to our neighbors. Depending on how that is handled and how they take it, things could get ugly quick.

My friend was is the 2nd tower that was hit on 9/11, ten stories below where the plane hit. Before the plane hit his tower he was standing at stairwell and a guard was telling them not to go down, don’t panic, everything would be fine. He saw people falling out the other building, he said no it is not fine, and he and a bunch of others pushed through the guard and started the long decent down. They made it to one of the lower floors when the plane hit his building and bounced him around the stairwell. He made it out but PTSD followed. So who is to say when is the right time to panic?

In 2020, questions around “community” in the art world were supercharged. While artists and arts workers have always been influenced, inspired, and supported by the communities of which they’re part, in the face of a global crisis, everyone was forced to consider the role of art therein, and understand the sector’s inseparability from issues of healthcare, housing, food safety, fair wages, and safe working conditions, among others. The art world—comprised as it is of many sub-communities, each with its own mores, codes, and rules of engagement—saw folks out at marches, ad hoc Instagram art auctions crop up to funnel money to communities in need, and non-profit arts organizations encourage their audiences to donate to social justice projects. At the same time, however, in light of forced gallery closures and ensuing financial burdens, many institutions chose to cut staff in areas of public programming, education, and outreach—in essence, the very people responsible for strengthening the connective tissue between “the community” and the institution. With the mass uptake (however meaningful) of equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives—including the embrace of practices that aim to disinter forgotten histories and renovate the canon—many curators, programmers, and organizers have realized the need to look beyond familiar contexts. Some have found that essential contributions to community-centred work lie just beyond the line that delineates “the art world” from “the rest of the world” and many others have spent their entire practice straddling this border—or rather, in the rich terrain that has been perceived as one. The work here might take shape as “outsider art,” traditional craft practices, DIY aesthetics in the name of activism, or the work facilitated by community arts organizations—which have previously been kept at arm’s length from contemporary art, and even snubbed. Is the wall between so-called high art and community practice slowly dissolving? The worst thing is to be out of the market. If you can spare $5, click here.

COVID-19 - Inauguração Cancelada

Financial markets remain in absolute chaos as virus concerns run rampant. We need urgent implementation of social distancing and closure policies.

COVID-19 - Inauguração Cancelada

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I wrote to let you know that all four Museums were remaining open but that we were continuing to monitor the unfolding COVID-19 situation in light of advice we were receiving from public health officials and experts. Today I am announcing our decision, in response to accumulating information regarding the best ways to slow the rate of COVID-19 infections, that our museums will be closed to the public, effective Saturday morning, March 14. We will close for an initial period of 14 days and will continue to evaluate that timeframe as new information becomes available.



Temporary Closure
In the light of the latest developments surrounding the COVID-19, from 14 March the gallery will temporarily close to the public. Our staff will work remotely, ensuring that the gallery remains fully operational. During this time, we will continue to engage with our public by increasing the visibility in our online platforms. Appointments to see the exhibition can be arranged by emailing the gallery

The Johnson government speaks for a financial oligarchy in Britain and internationally and their well-paid flunkeys such as Hopkins—a favourite of Donald Trump. Their message to the population is: “Drop dead. We don’t care,” even as they disappear to their luxury yachts, islands and “disaster bunkers,” along with their personal medics, for as long as it takes to avoid infection.

Dear Friends,

After careful consideration of COVID-19 and discussions with artsts, collaborators and staff, we have decided to close our galleries in New York and Rome for the next two weeks.

Through our exhibitions, public programs and events we've created a gallery where people come together in appreciation of all that art can do. We feel a responsibility to ensure that everyone who walks through our doors feel safe. In closing our spaces for the time being, we hope to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.

In the meantime, we'll be in touch about our exhibitions and programming online. We look forward to staying connected with you on Instagram, our website and online viewing rooms.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us for any specific inquiries:


Given the fluidity and uncertainty of the current crisis, we cannot determine the duration of the closure at this time.
There's no party, but we'll still carry on with our mission and create opportunities for exchange.

We have made this decision in accordance with the current regulations of the Swiss Federal Council and join many cultural institutions across the city and country who are also closing to help limit the further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and moving to remote work wherever possible.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will announce our re-opening as appropriate. Please continue to monitor our website for further updates.

While we firmly believe that communal engagement with art is crucial in these challenging times, our first priority is to keep our visitors, artists, and staff safe.

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you good health and calm as we navigate this new territory together.








Karl Fuller is a programmer at Tottenham venue Five Miles, who are today calling off all events for the foreseeable future. He says that Five Miles will be unable to survive financially for more than a few weekends with doors shut – and that his job, and those of his colleagues, is inevitably on the line. He has been encouraged by an unforeseen spike in resource pooling and solidarity among competitors in London’s club scene. “The electronic music community is a beautiful thing when it wants to be,” Fuller says. “It really gets behind causes, such as the license threat recently posed to Fold. I’m hopeful that all of us in smaller, independent entities that don’t have the backing or infrastructure in place for a situation such as this are appreciated, and people come out in support when our backs are really against the wall.” Although, he added, “it is a very complicated situation that no one has any concrete answers for.”

In all other respects we remain fully operational and are we are available to answer any enquiries regarding our artists, the gallery program, and the publishing house.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update
In response to recommendations around curtailing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we will close our galleries and postpone events until further notice.

The health and safety of our visitors, as well as our team and colleagues here, remains paramount so while the building remains open we ask anyone with symptoms not to come in and encourage everyone to follow guidelines - please see below.

We look forward to announcing our exhibition and programme plans before too long and are exploring ways to share contemporary culture with you online in the meantime; please keep an eye on our website and social media.

Thank you for your continued support.

In effect the world economy needs to be put on “Pause”, until the viral threat is neutralised. Only then can we tentatively restart the system. “I’d tell people to assume every unsolicited effort to reach you or sell you something should be viewed with extreme skepticism.” He wasn’t shocked by the infected woman who deliberately came out here, even after she was told not to. “That small act reflects a lot of what we deal with in the summer,” he says. “Selfish. Disrespectful. Absolutely horrifying.” In other words, and counterintuitively, the loners might be the key to preserving the social aspect of these systems—they themselves are not social, which makes them invulnerable to the kinds of threats that collectives face, but their offspring retain the ability to be social under the right conditions, so sociality is preserved. There's communication involved in becoming a loner...









Dear Merlin,

We hope that you are safe and well in these unprecedented times. Next week launches daily virtual programming. We hope that you engage with this and that it will help create a sense of shared community and hope while we're physically apart.

Please let us know what you think. We value your feedback and ideas. The revolution is clearly coming.

Sending well wishes,



Spencer Gore, chief executive of Impossible Aerospace, a California-based maker of high-performance drones used by first responders, said he was “working like crazy” to help a variety of other US law enforcement agencies set up drone programmes. Part of his pitch is that his company uses “Made in the USA” hardware.

“What we saw in China, and what we’re probably going to see around the world, is using drones with cameras and loudspeakers to fly around to see if people are gathering where they shouldn't be, and telling them to go home,” Mr Gore said. “It seems a little Orwellian but this could save lives.”

“Prediction products”—items that employ user data to “anticipate what you will do now, soon, and later” and then are traded in “behavioral futures markets”; or “the extraction imperative,” which is her phrase for what motivates firms to collect as much behavioral and personal data as possible, and aims to be an open channel to bring different cultures together in what is considered a very gentrified area, where locals are invited to participate. The space opened as a project space in 2017 and since then it has shown over 10 exhibitions involving international artists from Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Portugal, Germany, as well as national British young, early and mid-career artists.

Is this the end of capitalism? I don’t think so, but it’s very likely that markets will remain volatile for some time.

While it is with great sadness that we must suspend access to our building at this critical moment, the Gallery’s team will continue to work towards a programme that engages with art and ideas in these difficult times. To be part of the conversation, please join us online by signing up for our main Gallery newsletters if you aren’t yet a subscriber; visiting our website; and following us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

In the meantime, stay healthy, be kind and please don’t get in touch.

Dear Mr Carpenter,

From today, Monday 23 March, all road user charging schemes in London are temporarily suspended until further notice.

This move has been made to ensure London’s critical workers, particularly those in the NHS, are able to travel round London as easily as possible during this national emergency. It also supports the supply chain, the effort to keep supermarkets fully stocked and the city’s continued operation.

Government advice is that people need to limit social contact and travel should only be undertaken if absolutely necessary. The roads need to be kept clear for the emergency services and critical workers who need to get around by car. Drivers are asked to consider the wider implications when thinking about using their machines.

Public transport is still the best way for critical workers to travel where possible. To keep the network running TfL has reduced the number of stations open and are ensuring they are appropriately staffed. For some of these workers, in the current circumstances driving to work will be the simplest option, which is why the charges have been lifted.

Yours sincerely,






In a strange way, the subjective experience is somewhat like that of a mass strike—but one which, in its non-spontaneous, top-down character and, especially in its involuntary hyper-atomization, illustrates the basic conundrums of our own strangled political present as clearly as the true mass strikes of the previous century elucidated the contradictions of their era. The quarantine, then, is like a strike hollowed of its communal features but nonetheless capable of delivering a deep shock to both psyche and economy.

Like us, you might also be stuck at home, not able to do and see so many of the things you would otherwise. We ask ourselves, how does one continue to experience art with requirements for physical distancing and under the current conditions? Kunsthalle’s spaces remain closed to the public, but we are actively trying to find ways to collect and share content with our audience because, in times like this, we all might need it more than ever.


Our advice is always the same.

Check the detail of the URL or website address
Avoid clicking on links on e-mails and text messages

Don't rush to give away personal details
Don't assume everything you receive is genuine.

A scam involving fake maps with coronavirus outbreaks which puts malware on your machine, ever more intense collapses that seem to place the entire system on a precipice, but which are ultimately overcome via a combination of mass sacrifice that clears the market/population and an intensification of technological advances, previously unknown viruses are essentially harvested from wild populations and distributed along global capital circuits.
Modifying the interface between the human and non-human. Capital merely has a subordinated hinterland, itself fully subsumed within global value chains. A justification for the extension of state control, and the response to these crises will increasingly function as an opportunity to exercise new and untested tools for counterinsurgency....
In light of Mayor de Blasio’s declaration of a state of emergency in New York City, and Governor Cuomo’s temporary state-wide ban on large-scale events, the Gallery is taking all the necessary precautions recommended by the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization. and other officials, to ensure the ongoing safety of our staff and our visitors. We will continue to diligently and vigilantly monitor all developments concerning the Coronavirus until it is eradicated.





Due to the Corona precautionary measures, the Kunstverein will remain temporarily closed. The following events are cancelled. We ask for your understanding.

Dear Friends,







Open by appointment only, until further notice. However, we will be available and working remotely.

We would love to hear from you and look forward to seeing you again as soon as it will be possible.

Stay safe and be well,

The Team. Temporary Closure

In response to increasing concerns relating to the spread of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, artists, and visitors, we will close to the public and staff with immediate effect until further notice. This follows the suspension of all activities in our community spaces and offsite studios in the last week.

Whilst closed, we will continue to develop activities for artists, our communities and audiences and will endeavour to programme new content online. We will keep you informed of any developments through our digital channels.




The government has again made clear that financial services are critical so we are going to continue to do our best to support you. But as our own people are affected by coronavirus too, there are 3 simple but urgent things you can do to help us sustain our service to you and your fellow members.

This email reflects the latest government advice, but please ensure you have the latest on our services by checking our coronavirus support page on our website.

Dear supporters,

I hope you, your loved ones and colleagues are doing as well as can be expected during this very challenging time. For the past few weeks, I have frequently thought about our community of artists, members, visitors, supporters, and the staff. More than a museum, we are a hub for community and this is why it is so difficult to have it closed to the public.

While our doors are closed, we remain committed to keeping you feeling inspired, connected, and creative while at home! Check out our social media channels every day and online chats with our curators. This week we invite you to participate in a live instagram Meet and Greet with our Curatorial Fellows!

We look forward to staying in touch digitally! I invite you to check it out. Let us know what you'd like to see more of by leaving comments on our social media channels and reaching out to our Curatorial Fellow.

Stay healthy,

Enough news for today, thanks. Time for a beauty/solace/sanity break to help us through. Amidst the multitude of random kindnesses underway in our besieged world: Expert advice on grief, inexpert dinosaurs on parade, lock-down concerts, quarantine birthdays, neighbors bearing whoopie pies, Songs of Comfort, and poetry á la Ferlinghetti's "I am signalling you through the flames." Know that our lives/are in one another's hands/(Surely, that has come clear.)

We are optimistic for the future, as we believe that the power is in our choices, and in how we respond to the adversities we face. And we are facing challenging times of wide-ranging uncertainty, that is why now, more than ever, we should be kind and generous.

While we reflect on large-scale, supply chain, and community ecosystems, we find renewed conviction in human scale and sincere approach to the arts. We encourage commencing collectors and art lovers, we boost emerging artists, we care for passionate galleries, and we cheer for an inclusive art market.









This is stunning. I turned 66 today. I go to youtube and find this. I was 9 years old 11/22/1963. I have been among the many that have studied and impacted by this event, as has our country and the entire world. I took a songwriting course in 2013 and wrote my own song for this (50th anniversary) "Ask Not What Your Country Did To Him." But, to have our Poet Laureate, the Gershwin award winner weigh in on this at this time, incredible. American Pie was analyzed when it came out, and still is. Of course many of Dylan's classics, add this one to the list. Bravo Bob Dylan, Bravo. Thank you

This will be a wake-up call.

Ideas that were dismissed as too radical just a week ago are starting to seem like the only reasonable path.

We need to use every tool that we have that allows us to hear each other’s voices, to read each other’s words, to see each other’s faces, even if it’s just on screens, to stay organized and stay connected. We have to create spaces where we’re able to deliberate and strategize about what it means to protect our neighbors, our rights, and our planet.

We have to have the confidence to say this is the moment when we change everything. It’s an uncertain time to be an investor. The coronavirus outbreak has hit markets, and they remain volatile. But with the tax year ending on 5 April, we think it still makes sense to secure your valuable ISA and pension allowances. You can do this by adding cash now, then deciding where to invest later.

Now was the time to take back control. Of our own deaths. These are unprecedented times, creating challenges for us all. So it feels important that I should write to you personally to let you know what EDF is doing to help our customers and our country during the Coronavirus crisis, whilst keeping our staff safe.

First and foremost, I want to reassure everyone who relies on us that they will continue to get the energy they need from us.

We are the UK’s largest generator of low-carbon electricity and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our engineers have been categorised as key workers and will be working shifts 24 hours a day, seven days a week, keeping all our power stations running safely throughout the crisis. Our nuclear and renewable generation teams will continue to provide the nation with the always-on, clean power it needs.

Our staff are working in call centres or from home, focused on helping customers who are elderly, vulnerable or on prepayment meters. Our staff are doing their best to help in these challenging circumstances so please treat them with respect and care. Our dedicated relationship managers are also working remotely to support our large business and public service customers.

Beyond this, we are doing the following to support the country:


If you're at home, feeling isolated or in need of a break from the headlines, we invite you to join us on our Blog.

In the near future we will add audio-recordings featuring some of the greatest thinkers and creators of our time.

We are here for you – to feed your creativity and curiosity. And we thank you, our loyal artists, audiences, partners and supporters – including our donors, commissioning council, patrons, members, project supporters, trusts & foundations, corporate partners and of course Arts Council England. We are all in this together.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and stay tuned!

We hope this email finds you well during these challenging times.

Dear Merlin,

On behalf of everyone at easyJet, I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe at this time.

I wanted to write to you to let you know what's been happening at easyJet.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working hard to repatriate more than 45,000 customers from across Europe, and we will continue to work with governments to support the ongoing effort to get people home where needed.

However, with our number one priority being the safety and wellbeing of customers and crew, and with the travel restrictions across Europe, we took the decision to temporarily ground all of our fleet of aircraft. This means that throughout April, there will be no easyJet flights operating anywhere on our network other than for well as building a relationship with our followers - who are your followers too. Is coffee a verb?

First and foremost, I wish health and safety to all of you despite the current situation that we are facing’s physical space on Get me an Attorney St. in New York City is closed, but we are excited to participate in Access, The Armory’s Show’s new initiative supporting artists and galleries during these difficult times. Through this platform, I hope you can enjoy our current exhibition from your home.

For workers to take up a fight for their own interests in this unfolding crisis, it is necessary to cut through the endless government propaganda and media chatter to the real class interests at stake. This would impact a population already seething at the government’s homicidal “herd immunity” response to the pandemic.

Leon Trotsky explained that the task of socialists, and ultimately the working class, was “to follow not the war map but the map of the class struggle”. The same can be said of the Brexit negotiations. All possible outcomes will mean a redoubled assault on the European working class...

China is consolidating, absorbing and digesting the investments made in the past.

Now very wealthy, Dylan has nothing to say about events that are overtaking the events of his younger days.











A challenging year is coming to an end. But for all its upheavals, it also contained the kinds of poetry, beauty, impetuses for change, and soldering of communities that have galvanized us as an institution. For our part, we look back at the remarkable work of artists and the generosity of audiences that participated in our programs, some impressions of which we share here. And we take this moment to express our gratitude to all of you who have so resolutely supported us, inspired us, and brought us joy. Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Yours, The team of Kunsthalle

The impact of COVID-19

Like many other art institutions, the Centrum was not spared from the consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak. Even though the current conditions are forcing us to adjust our planning and to look at alternatives for team members, visitors and residents - we intend to keep going. It seems more important than ever to maintain our social relations, and therefore rethink the way we communicate and cooperate.

With a new artistic program ahead, it will not fail to be a very productive and inspiring year. Doing less is not an option – how unprecedented the coming times might be. We look forward to hearing your challenging proposals. This is the time for alternative formats, creative risks and artistic resistance.

Myspace Gallery would like to send our love and solidarity to our extended networks during the unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic. At present we’re continuing to evaluate the programming methods through which we can support our visual arts community and deliver public outputs during this situation, and shall outline our plans for this to you all in the near future. Despite having to postpone our symposium ‘Systems are doing it for other systems’ (which we endeavour to deliver at a later date), we are reimagining and reworking our programme in ways that uphold physical isolation measures. As we watch fellow institutions honour their programmes, so do we take some time to think through this for our own. Together with our contributors and collaborators, we’re continuing to develop an engaging learning programme which celebrates mechanisms of support for emerging artists and cultural workers. We are sharing resources to listen, watch and read, exploring open source tools for care and offering past and present participants open crits. While we commend the efforts of many organisations to disseminate forms of culture in the digital realm, working quickly to find alternative forms of presentation during this time, we ourselves continue to find the situation very difficult to navigate and do not wish to put undue or premature pressure on people to be ‘engaged’ or ‘productive’. We feel it’s important to take the time to consider the most helpful and accessible ways to generate engagement and take elements of our programme forward during this period, with an emphasis on personal and communal care. We welcome thoughts from our community.



The tweet prompted widespread criticism and incredulity. According to Ernst Fraenkel’s portrayal of Nazi Germany as a “dual state” there is a “normative state”, composed of lengthy constituted authorities and the traditional civil service, jostled for power with “prerogative state” formed by the party’s parallel organisations. Carl Friedrich and Zbigniew Brzezinski, the founding scholars of the “totalitarian” model, coined the term “islands of separation” to describe elements of civil society that survive within a totalitarian dictatorship.






the working-class immigrant neighborhood of Elmhurst, Queens, has been identified as the “epicenter of the epicenter".

“We had watched the Queen on Sunday night, one of the anchors in our lives. She took us back to the moment in her reign when she broadcast during the war with her sister. Then to suddenly hear that our prime minister had been taken into intensive care … in my 52 years I really have to say I think it was the darkest hour. We had lots of friends and family contracting the virus, and had news of so many people dying, then you think, ‘my God, we could lose him as well’.” That night people across the country, from all walks of life, reported having sleepless nights. Like Johnson or loathe him, the feeling of shock was the same. “He is literally larger than life so when you hear he is dangerously ill it feels like a blow to life itself.” She struggled to sleep that night, wondering where this would all end. “When I woke up – and I think this was the case with lots of people – I just thought ‘oh no, what am I going to read now?’ Thankfully the news wasn’t any worse…. A former colleague journalist said: “I regard Boris – who was a friend – as a liar and charlatan for the way he has behaved, including over Brexit. But when I heard he was in intensive care I just felt this extraordinary wave of sympathy for him.” “He has to show that he has been humbled by this." "I swear to God, this guy is the luckiest SOB that's ever lived," said a former White House official who stays in close touch with current officials. "That's not to say he hasn't done right things. But the flip side is, he's one of these away from a massive F-up." “He described his political opponents as ‘bad,’ ‘dirty,’ ‘horrible,’ ‘evil,’ ‘sick,’ ‘corrupt,’ ‘scum,’ ‘leakers,’ ‘liars,’ ‘vicious,’ ‘mean,’ ‘lowlife,’ ‘non-people,’ ‘stone-cold crazy,’ and ‘The crookedest, most dishonest, dirtiest people I’ve ever seen.’”

Speed Trumps perfection. The greatest error is not to move. Be fast and have no regrets.




No one can pretend that our reality bears much resemblance to the pristine market models so popular in the 1980s and 1990s. But anyone who took those at face value was missing the point. All along, the state was actually involved, whether as a creator of markets, or as a distributor and enforcer of property rights.

the virus has become a brutal test of the ability to formulate, design and implement a coherent response to crisis.
Humans are now a mere second-order, instrumental factor to be considered based on how it affects capital. In this perilous time, capital must be protected and nurtured, and we must draw resources from our entire society in order to help capital survive, in the same way that the body will draw blood from other organs to save the brain. People can be sacrificed—capital is irreplaceable. We are navigating our way through this so that capital comes out okay on the other side.

...we were wondering if we should organize a party. A little blasé, a little tired of endless special events, we were thinking that maybe an email or a IG post would have done the job... Now it’s been exactly one month since the lockdown forced us to temporarily close down the shop; and we are so much craving for sitting at the desk at 9am, shifting the windows display, choosing what to read out loud, stressing out at 6pm ‘cause no one has shown up, and stressing out at 8pm ‘cause there’s too many people; seeing your faces, hearing your gossips, pushing our way through the crowd to the beers —sh*t there’s no more beers— complaining about no book sold, complaining about sold out books…









Whereas art industry is on suspension or transitions online, we continue flexing the muscle groups of uncertainty and instability. Besides rethinking program, people, and budgets, where do we want to be after this crisis? Or do we want to ever come back? One is no longer who they were, but who are they then? Wrestling with (our own) demons, we are cleaning the space – both physical and online. We are also revisiting our archive (an exciting collaboration to be announced). For a decade and counting our value is rooted in engendering relationships with artists, curators, writers, other creatives as well as supporters, and we would like to take a moment to thank you all for that. We are all entangled in a floating exchange, that now in a deeply upsetting way, carries the metaphor, function, and harm of a virus. Due to all the reading, viewing, and zoom-ing, perhaps, but we start to lean towards the belief that what this virus teaches us is that we are not alone. Even during this time of a slow cancellation of the future...







Faced with these conditions, meatpacking workers, like health care, auto industry, public transit and sanitation workers in the US and around the world, have taken matters into their own hands to protect their lives.


Further Biographical Context for Merlin Carpenter

Born in 1967, Merlin Carpenter was largely inspired by the 1980s growing up. The 1980s were an era of developing global capitalism, political upheaval, global mass media, wealth discrepancies and distinctive music and fashion, characterised by hip hop and electronic pop music. This had a heavy impact on the generation of artists growing up during this time. The fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the decade marked the end of the Cold War, yet the era was also distinguished by the African Famine. During this time leading art movements included Neo Geo, The Pictures Generation and Neo-Expressionism, which took a particular hold in Germany, France and Italy. Artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel were primary artists working at this time, alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, who developed the street art and graffiti movements, which quickly gained recognition.

BIg Shack Wannacry is pleased to announce our Online Viewing Room is now live, featuring new works. Ten percent of all sales from the Online Viewing Room will be long before the Corona crisis broke out, I asked the curator. It's almost uncanny how the subject now appears in a new light in the face of the current situation. For the show deals with the tension between the digital worlds as the place where our wishes are fulfilled and, on the other hand, as an abstract space in which we limit ourselves. In the hope of seeing you again soon at the champagne bar, my team and I would like to give you as many insights as possible and provide you with inspiration for the time when we cannot meet in person. That will certainly change again. I am looking forward to it. Stay healthy!

Over the years, people in the media have said I was "ahead of my time"—some kind of a prophet. As though books I published have "launched" niche cultural trends or movements. Dear Supporter,

As we confront a world today that is unrecognizable from the one we inhabited only weeks ago, I am reminded that contemporary art provides connection, inspiration, and fuels our curiosity.

I believe that deep connections between people happens through thought provoking contemporary art, produced by living artists. I am proud to announce our fourth season of Daily Rash. We are pushing to all digital channels and tagging. Daily Rash is generously supported by the Knight Rider Foundation and I have come to think of this initiative as a digital extension of free community space. Here, capital seeks to disguise its dependence upon the labor and production process of society by presenting as an “asset” magically generating an income stream for its owner. Designed to invite conversation and contemplation. I also hope that you enjoy connecting with art through our website and social media. Please let us know what else you would like to see.

Dear Merlin,

Thank you for staying connected and your ongoing support of the museum during this time. As a small token of our appreciation, we are introducing two new series for you.

The first is virtual studio visits with our director Steve Jobs. Click here to see our "pilot" episode with the artist from his temporary studio in Bangkok. However, since this body also plants critiques of value into the value sphere, it cannot be reduced to its mere corporeality.

Second, curators reflect on the last art they saw in person before taking shelter under the Safer at Home Order. This is a special series for members and donors.


‘We will have to suck this up. The people have spoken. Bastards.’ Deeply reactionary and inhuman ideas are wafting about Germany. But there, no less than in the United States, they arise not from the sick psychology of individuals, but from the needs of the capitalist system. In actuality it was West Berlin that was walled in.

Introducing the Art in Isolation: a new series of weekly artist profiles highlighting current concerns, accompanied by a selection of available works. We know that these are precarious and uncertain times for everyone and with so many people staying at home, self-isolating or social distancing, we want to be able to continue sharing some of our favourite art and artists with you. Art in Isolation are a weekly series of conversations with artists that will explore how these new circumstances are affecting their practices and productivity. We’ll hear how they are finding solutions - and even opportunities - and what their plans and hopes are for the future. Most artists are self-employed, often supplementing their income by working as technicians, fabricators, assistants, teachers and a whole host of other jobs. Now, many have very suddenly lost a vital source of income. With this in mind, we are accompanying each Art in Isolation with a curated selection of work by that artist, available for purchase. Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and look after one another. Art in Isolation

It feels that the current issue of Endnotes is a sort of melancholic goodbye to these times and their ideas and an expression of a reluctance to formulate the consequence: times are getting harder, there is a necessity to develop a more concrete strategy. One which questions one’s own role as someone who primarily interprets and whose organisational and political capacity is not required.

In light of our current “working from home” (WFH) culture, the demands of working life on all elements of waking life, from leisure to the home, has arguably reached its apex. Technology, which is meant to “make life better” and herald a new age of freedom and self-determination, has resulted in increased time dedicated to work (i.e. catching up) and self-surveillance, in the form of social media updates, texts, emails, blog posts, multi-tasking regimes, and the like. This condition is characterized by the obligation to always be “on,”...

Typically occurring in hotel suites and private apartments, events are lead by experts in their field, from artists and activists to porn stars and academics. Exploring Property, Domesticity, Authority, Pleasure, Disorder, and Apocalypses, this event asked and answered questions like: Are you paying your rent? What actions can we take to not? What are Rent Strikes, historically and now? What are WAGES FOR HOUSEWORK QUARANTINE? Who is at home in the home and to whom is this new? How does plague compromise and inspire the commons? What are effective contemporary modes of resistance? What are your favorite sick domestic films? Is your domesticity a performance? Do you have a live witness? Are you producing privacy? For public consumption? Does it make you feel less alone?





British social democracy is eating its own entrails as it enters its final death agony, brought on by a fundamental change in international class relations that is rapidly accelerating as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. To the extent that the working class is blocked by the trade unions, the Democratic Party and their pseudo-left allies from offering an independent policy to fight the pandemic and defend the living standards and democratic rights of workers and other social layers being sacrificed to the drive of the corporate elite to increase its wealth, the ruined middle class can be drawn behind the far-right and turned against the workers. We have to face the reality of the mass impulse not toward communalism, but individualism. Notwithstanding the nihilism of the recent pro-Trump #liberate rallies, many people are walling themselves off, hoarding, and attempting to keep themselves entertained and isolated until “it’s all over.”

during Covid-19

We realize you may be dealing with many challenges right now, and we don’t want to add a burden. But if you do have a few minutes to share your thoughts and views in this online survey, we’ll be grateful. And you’ll be representing our community in the national picture.

We’ll be asking about how you’re spending your time during the pandemic, how things have changed, and how creativity, entertainment, culture, and other things fit into your life. The research is being done on behalf of nonprofit organizations around the country.









Yen says the block coincided with protests against government efforts to restrict the internet, which critics have dubbed an internet “kill switch.” The Kremlin, known for its protracted efforts to crack down and stifle freedom of speech, claimed it was to protect the country’s infrastructure in the event of a cyberattack. The government said its contact-tracing app has been signed off by the National Cyber Security Centre, is secure and users’ data will be protected. “People really should feel very reassured,” John Newton, the national testing coordinator, told reporters.






A conversation between generations:

Painted at the height of his powers, Cecily, which is offered for private sale at Christie’s, is testament to the unlikely friendship between two artists from different eras

Francis Bacon painted Lucian Freud. Frank Auerbach painted Leon Kossoff. Keith Haring painted Andy Warhol, who painted Jean-Michel Basquiat. History is riddled with tales of artists who — through friendship, rivalry or admiration — became each other’s muses. Such portraits are often full of surprises.



Engaged in a wild exploration of painting’s sensual pleasure. Glimpses of naked figures cavorted amid torrid streaks of pigment. Colours intermingled in rich, visceral strands. Imagery from cinema and popular culture fused with the influence of Rembrandt, Bacon and other great painters of flesh. If de Kooning had been something of a spectre, he was a hero.

Nonetheless, the two artists became friends. Witnesses a master at work. Against a mottled grey-green backdrop, flecked with sparks of white, crystalline modulations of light and shade chart her features; her eyes and mouth seem alive with unspoken thoughts. Clarity and ambiguity join hands —‘the present tense’.

Viewed closely, however, the portrait represents something more vital. In the four-decade gulf between painter and sitter lies a turning point in the history of painting — one in which both artists would play crucial roles. Indeed, for all their superficial differences, they had something fundamental in common: they both championed the medium at times where its future seemed uncertain...

Underpinning their divergent styles was a belief that paint — in all its malleable complexity — could capture the experience of being human

Looking deeper, more similarities emerge. Both practices upheld the power of pigment to transmit sensation: to seal inarticulate moments in the sweep of a brush. Underpinning their divergent styles was a belief that paint — in all its malleable complexity — could capture the experience of being human.

At its core, Cecily records a conversation between generations. It tells the story of two artists, born eras apart, who breathed new life into their medium. Today, they are regarded as ‘painters’ painters’: passionate advocates for its past, present and future.

'Cecily’s engagement with Blenheim - and, by extension, Englishness and class - is exemplary. And it’s hard to resist her delight in her medium’s flurrying, seductive possibilities.’ - Alex Katz, The Daily Telegraph.

“The people of our country are warriors, and I'm looking at it,” Trump said during a trip to Arizona. “I'm not saying anything is perfect. And yes, will some people be affected? Yes.

Instead of workers reallocating from low-productivity jobs to high-productivity ones, the reverse of this process takes place, as workers pool increasingly in low-productivity jobs in the service sector. Body bags of businesses. Masses of people can only work as long as the growth of their incomes is suppressed relative to the average rate.

As a co-op of artists with a programme based on collaborations and partnerships, the very premise of our work centres around our gathering together, and as the situation continues to change it remains hard to imagine what our work looks like moving forward. As an ecology of artists, educators and curators we are using our time and resources to continue to support artists and the communities we work in, adapting programmes that we run in care settings and community centres and finding new ways to connect and support the groups that have been hardest hit by the current crisis. We are also reflecting on our activity and ways of working. What should arts institutions do now? What should artists do now? How do we align our visions for the future with our actions today? How do we do this together, building powerful alliances for change?

In the monthly newsletters that come, and as our programme begins to shift, we will be sharing a Care Package. Some of you may be aware that many people have been creating videos of the toilet roll challenge – staff/artists film short clips of themselves catching a toilet roll from out of the frame and passing it on back out the other side of the frame. Edited together these make great little videos of communities apparently coming together and passing it on, providing a great visual representation of us all working together and being kind to one another even though we are apart. In this spirit then, and as a way of reaching out to artists and collectors to show we are still here, working together and available to support them, we have decided to have a go with an international version. So this is a callout for your clips! If you would like to submit a clip here is what to do:
Use a plain white toilet roll so we all have the same
Be creative and have fun! Think of a fun or interesting setting or activity you can be doing in your clip (Google 'toilet roll challenge' for ideas…there is everything from reading a book, cooking, to bouncing on trampolines)
Email it to by Friday 22 May

But fear is driving the strikes, even more than wages.





Agustin Lopez has lived in the Yakima Valley and worked in its sheds since 1985. His experience has made him cautious, therefore, about predicting whether workers will decide if a permanent union is the answer to their problems. But when he looks at the waves of people leaving the apple sheds, each company encouraging the next one, he thinks change is not just possible, but happening around him. “This connection between us is something new,” he says, “and there are people out here from lots of the plants. Maybe we are actually a federation.” The answer will be determined by the strike, he believes.

Maybe if the affluent understand that “taking the punch” will not protect or liberate us, but may risk food shortages, outrage, and rebellion, maybe that will weigh more.

A reminder that if you haven't signed up yet, you can still register to attend a virtual studio visit today at noon.

Dear Merlin

I hope you're well. I’m contacting you with a short inquiry:

A "walkie talkie" is handy and allows a large number of people to communicate with each other quickly and without interference. This is exactly how "Walkie Talkie" works - since lockdown day 1:
We ask artists for their contribution, which we share day by day on and via our social media. This can be something existing, or something you are currently working on that is only just emerging. Whether video clips, photographs, sound tracks, studio visits or home stories – sometimes the contributions comment on the current situation or they are snapshots of everyday life in these unusual times.

It would be great if you would be part of it too! “There are few things as nourishing as the human voice, especially during a quarantine.”

All I would need for that is:

– your contribution (one or more pictures)
– name of your contribution
– 3-5 sentences about your work: Why is it important to you? What does it convey?

Can you give me a sign if you are in? I'm looking forward to reading from you.
Thank you very much!

“Americans are on the move,” he said. “They can’t be tied down and they can’t be restrained. They don’t want the government telling them what to do.”


The prime minister, who has written a biography of himself, added: “Yes, I sometimes expressed opinions that were and are unacceptable to you today, but I am a hero, and I fully deserve my memorial.”

Asking Boris to take responsibility for his own actions is pointless. He just can’t do it, because he is the centre of his own universe, locked into his own closed system of thought. What he wants he must have. So it follows that whatever he does must automatically be right. People who disagree with him or are no longer useful to him are easily discarded as inconveniences.

The president “speaks like an idiot” and “shoots from the hip” and is “borderline crazy,” but maybe that’s what America needs when all hell is breaking loose.

We are making a number of temporary changes to the central London Congestion Charge to help us get London moving safely and sustainably.

The temporary changes are designed to reduce traffic in central London and enable more journeys to be made safely by foot or bike, while keeping the bus network reliable for those making essential journeys. The temporary changes will apply from Monday 22 June.

These include increasing the Congestion Charge to £15 per day and extending the hours of operation to between 07:00 and 22:00 seven days a week (excluding Christmas Day). The Residents' Discount will close to new time.

Thanks to some asshole’s generous hacking job, the entirety of the Crown of Viserys website contents have been deleted. As a result, I took a few days to consider my options, which seemed ultimately to only be two options: scrap it all completely or rebuild from scratch. The latter seems to be the case of what will happen with Crown of Viserys. Now, I’m definitely not saying this has been the most active site for about a year, but hopefully, I can regain traction and begin to post with a regular schedule again.

They are terrorists using idle hate filled students to burn and destroy. It was just mayhem, people just want to have a good time but they just don’t give a monkey’s about others. “The moment is pregnant,” this adviser said. “We just don’t know what with.” It can be aligned with the trend sometimes termed ‘reality hunger’. After postmodernism, a craving for a more authentic rendering of reality sticks to certain ‘chunks’ of reality, themselves unmoored from any clear historical referent. ‘Unlocking arousal emotions’ because who you are is something to be proud of.

...the president of the pro-Trump Club for Growth. Living and working amidst the masses of the proletariat and finding no one to organize with… we have a small favour to ask. More people in %%COUNTRY_NAME%% like you, and millions worldwide, are flocking to the Guardian for quality news every day.





A longstanding relationship to the French capital, most notably through its representation of legendary French artists and estates who have played defining roles in the course of art since the postwar period – Yves Klein, Martial Raysse, and Pierre Soulages – and its regular participation at the Biennale des FIAC.

The gallery’s critically admired program of postwar and contemporary art will be presented in the heart of the Marais district. Sited in a typically intimate Parisian passage between rue du Temple and Paris, it sits within walking distance from the Centre and in close proximity to other prominent international galleries, in an area known as the center of Parisian culture and historical locus of the city’s diversity.

“We are excited to be opening a space in Paris, in the Marais, in a site so deeply connected to the visual culture of this extraordinary city. The Paris gallery will complement our locations in New York, London, and Hong Kong, as we confirm our commitment to an international program that connects collectors, museums, and the public with the work of foremost artists whose work, ideas, and ideals transcend the limits of geography. We recognize that, in a moment when it is difficult for collectors to travel internationally to view art, it is even more critical for us to bring the art we love to our different locations – which will soon include Paris, a city that is so central to the gallery’s artistic heart, program, and network of relationships.”

That’s enough for now, plenty to discuss over the weekend while you’re at the pub in your hazmat suits sucking beer through a straw and trying not to speak too loudly.









On Friday, NBC reported that the White House is preparing to change its messaging on the coronavirus, to tell Americans it simply has to be lived with.






Das Prinzip " Eigenarbeit statt Lohnarbeit " macht einen unabhängiger.

Die Tageszeitung (1998)

Die industrialisierte Gesellschaft basiere eben nicht nur auf Lohnarbeit , sondern auch auf " großen Anteilen an nicht bezahlter Arbeit ".

Die Tageszeitung (1997)

Wenn Lohnarbeit obsolet und Umwelt wie Selbstwert zerstörende Produktionstätigkeit nicht zukunftssichernd sein kann, dann muß die Kritik an intellektuellem Yuppietum zur Forderung führen:

Third, content collapse puts all types of information into direct competition. The various producers and providers of content, from journalists to influencers to politicians to propagandists, all need to tailor their content and its presentation to the algorithms that determine what people see. The algorithms don’t make formal or qualitative distinctions; they judge everything by the same criteria. And those criteria tend to promote oversimplification, emotionalism, tendentiousness, tribalism — the qualities that make a piece of information stand out, at least momentarily, from the screen’s blur.










FOCUS: A body of work by a single artist.

ECHOES: Bringing back the best of our past exhibitions.

ON APPROPRIATION: Reflecting on this technique and the meaning of authorship in contemporaneity.

Sehr stabil und gutes Ploppgeräusch beim Öffnen!

An art advisory firm that assembles world class collections of post-war and contemporary art for a select group of private individuals and family offices. Whether or not you enjoy this place depends on the Artist of the moment and your own perspective. There were Artsnobs present standing about looking important discussing the meaning or idea... However, in contemporary China, where the labour movement suffers from the very lack of such momentum, the fundamental question of ‘how to organise’ should be addressed first.









They want the old world back, the pre-Covid-19 world back, but it cannot be had.

He quotes a description of his very slender book Soft Currency Economics as “The most important book ever written.”



"How many of these folks get what Tik Tok is and have been on it or Twitch or have been in a gaming platform where you watch hundreds of players battle each other, but they are having a whole debate about the environment and climate chaos?"

Along with missing out on the breakout moment, Dominguez says that the labor movement has yet to understand where in our digital culture that the protest movement is being organized. 

"Leadership in institutional academia has failed," Brian Nord, a black astrophysicist at the University of Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune. "That is clear now. This is no longer a debate. This is no longer a question. And so, it is up to us as individuals to gather together our creative energy to take the helm of that leadership as a community and say, 'No more.'"

"Conceptually we all can understand how these systems of oppression work, but how it sits in the body—being unable to shake that feeling of unworthiness, or feeling fraudulent—is really difficult." —Jennifer Moon

....the George Floyd Rebellion is the new criterion to which all theories and politics must be held to account. Not to tenure demands, not to academic journals, not to a community of so-called scholars, but the fire and heat of the proletarian struggle. They must answer to the demands of riots, strikes, occupations, blockades, insurrections, war, and revolution. This lack of accountability protects outdated and useless ideas, allowing dusty old theories that were long ago defeated in the actual class struggle to continue to live on in the academy, becoming a dead weight on the movement’s brain.







...don’t let anyone trying to drag you into a false binary argument have their way, you’ll just find yourself rolling round on the floor annoyed and trying to gouge each other’s eyes out while the sneaky people sneak a heap more sneakery under your preoccupied noses.
....if we have access to a really nice boat for example. There will be day parties, outdoor things, boats, rooftops, woods, fields, Sunday afternoons, collaborations with other parties, maybe even midweek things.








One final word, please think twice about heading straight for Spoons. The drinks may be cheap but that despicable animated ham scarecrow presides over an empire of turgid mediocrity operating under a wafer thin veneer of acceptability, treats his staff like shit and doesn’t deserve your money or time. This is make or break time for any kind of independent culture and it's time to choose a side.



"... it can be easy to think there aren’t any new stories to add to the legend. As we’ve seen ... there are still lesser known narratives in the legacy that create great interest,”

Streetwear and hype sales have been on the rise in the auction market. “This highly curated sale marks Christie’s entry into a new collecting category that merges sports’ history, art, fashion, and contemporary lifestyle following the great success of our Hype

Nonetheless, our wager must be that the uprising has changed the proletariat. We have to believe that in the possibility that everyday relations are also beginning to change. If you don’t want to leave the house, you can always get in political fights on social media.






“Just this idea of, ‘I just don’t want to believe it so therefore it’s not going to be true’ — honestly, I have not really dealt with that as it relates to disease before,” she said. But without an all-in effort “the cases are not going to come down,” he warned. “They’re not. They’re just not.”

To survive, one must defeat predictability and find ways to circumvent "reality" which often (seemingly) presents us with only binary options: (A) or (B). Sometimes, literally, one must make "a leap of faith" and find a new possibility hitherto not yet imagined.

Inane display of political reaction, empty clichés, inane rhetoric and nauseating insincerity.





According to a report Friday in the New York Times, the most open connection between the Republican Party and the fascist trend has developed in Texas, where the state Republican Party has launched a new campaign slogan, “We Are the Storm.” This is a direct overture to QAnon supporters, who frequently use that slogan to describe what they anticipate will be a military coup led by Trump that will end in the round-up and mass execution of his Democratic Party opponents. Lurking beneath the headlines justifiably devoted to these major stories of 2020 are very troubling data that reflect intensifying pathologies in the U.S. population — not moral or allegorical sicknesses but mental, emotional, psychological and scientifically proven sickness. Many people fortunate enough to have survived this pandemic with their physical health intact know anecdotally — from observing others and themselves — that these political and social crises have spawned emotional difficulties and psychological challenges.
