Pierre Terdjman & Benjamin Girette: “Dysturb”

Street Art trifft auf Fotojournalismus: “We are photojournalists who have taken onto the walls of your city to highlight stories undercovered by mainstream media. We believe in photography to express the words, distinguish the emotions and elevate the voice of people. We have chosen to print stories, to foster discussions and reactions. We wish to open eyes and inform about the world we live in. We are #Dysturb.” Terdjman: “Each time I finish a story, it’s the same struggle to get my images published magazines are rarely interested in showing what’s happening in Egypt, in Georgia, in Afghanistan. Sometimes they’ll publish one or two images, but that’s it. So, everything started from a very selfish idea. I wanted to show my photographs. I wanted to inform people, show them what I’d seen.” Via/Via

Erik Kessels & Thomas Sauvin: “ME TV”

Immer eine große Freude: Die Buchprojekte von kesselskramerpublishing. Neu im Sortiment: “ME TV” von Erik Kessels & Thomas Sauvin. “ME TV is publication made as a collaboration between Thomas Sauvin and Erik Kessels in Beijing. From the many pictures documenting TVs in China, these eight photographs are the best they’ve ever seen. Found in a market in Beijing, the images show a woman in her late sixties, always in an identical pose. In fact, the only thing that changes is her outfit. Or rather, the only thing that changes is her top, a new colourful jumper in each image. Her trousers are always the same. Even here pinkie finger remains static and strangely angled, in shot after shot. For some reason, this precise pinkie fascinates, implying as it does that she consciously arranged her little finger in a slightly unnatural way. What’s with the pinkie? Was this a strange running gag? Is this artifice something to do with showing how proud she is of her TV? All questions that one can only speculate about. What’s for sure is that this is an extraordinary small photographic series, made most likely by a husband and his wife over a short period of time. A couple documenting the arrival of a new television set and doing it in a way that verges on a work of conceptual art.”

Just: “Letters from Aleppo” – Ausstellung in Berlin

Wer´s noch nicht mitbekommen hat, eine kleine Erinnerung via Nerdcore: “Eine Woche vor Weihnachten fuhr mein Buddy Just nach Syrien, fotografierte dort im Bürgerkrieg und schickte mir Reiseberichte per Mail, die ich hier auf Nerdcore unredigiert veröffentlichte. Seit dem ist eine Menge passiert: Just hat eine Reihe von Interviews gegeben, ein Bericht erschien online in der Zeit (hier die Galerie dazu), die Story wird in der nächsten Ausgabe des renomierten schweizer Magazins Reportagen veröffentlicht, er ist Ende Februar vom Ausschuss für Menschenrechte und humanitaere Hilfe des Bundestags eingeladen, nachdem der Vorsitzende die Postings gelesen hatte und er organisiert grade eine Hilfsaktion für die Psychiatrie, die er dort besucht und fotografiert hatte.

Am 15. Februar eröffnet zu all dem die Ausstellung „Letters from Aleppo“ im Berliner Stattbad (FB-Event), dort werden sowohl Streetart-Bilder als auch Fotos aus Syrien zu sehen sein, während der Ausstellung läuft eine Klanginstallation von Thomas Rassloff, der das ständige Hintergrundrauschen aus Panzerschüssen und Gewehrsalven aufgenommen hat. Just hat auf seiner Website eine Slideshow online gestellt, inklusive Sounds. In der Ausstellung wird es auch ein Poster-Magazin zu kaufen geben (hier kann man das Teil online bestellen), die Erlöse fließen in die anlaufende Hilfsaktion.”

Update: The Wa

“Stavanger”, 2012

“La Ligne rouge : From the tourist itinerary to itinerant deviance. Here we are in Marseille, tourism policy put in evidence the merits of the city through a red track marks on the ground to serve as a guide, itinerary … the itinerary is advised. The Wa diverted then track it official by a mechanism tinkers, assembles, welds in the discretion of the workshops. It is therefore conceivable that small machinery, which allows a bicycle, to throw a line on the ground in red paint. This object has the burlesque aesthetic becomes the weapon of deviance. The Wa takes his bike, and since the itinerary advice, diverted the track official to areas not politically respectable.” (…)

Palindromo Meszaros: “The Dive”

Palindromo Meszaros über eine Umweltkatastrophe in Ungarn: “14th of October, 2010 at 12.25pm in Ajka, Veszprém county, Hungary: around a million cubic metres of toxic waste were released after the burst of the retaining wall in one of the reservoirs used for the accumulation of MAL aluminium company rubbish. The spilling reached two meters high and started a destructive race trying to release its energy, flooding Devecser and Kolontár villages. Ten human casualties were counted and the material damages were imposible to measure, including the destruction or irreparable deterioration of a big ammount of houses, the dissapearing of infrastructures and the poisoning of dozens of fields. The accident was fastly considered the biggest catastrophe of hungarian history. This photos have been taken six months after the accident when the silence takes the place of the headlines and just The Line is left.” Via

Luzinterruptus: “Drinking water running through the streets”

Luzinterruptus und ihre neue Intervention: “Drinking water running through the streets”. “In Madrid, in less than 30 years, more than 50% of the public fountains in service have been lost, which now are seen to be dismantled, broken, without a tap to drink from or simply dry. To criticize the indifference of the administration in regards to a necessary public service, we carried out our action. We have spent more than 4 months collecting the glass containers of the multiple vitamin supplement Infatrini, prescribed for little Alicia, who is now 1 year old, and whose father Fernando has been saving them for us with all the patience in the world. In total they have donated more than 200 vials to us that we have thoroughly cleaned and used to create our individual and luminous streams of water. On a cold night at the end of January, we went out into the street and took control of 4 unused public fountains in the city center, bringing them back to life for a few hours. We wanted to say that water is necessary for life and that the fountains that are used for drinking and refreshing ourselves seem much more necessary and beautiful to us than those which are merely ornamental, which the citizens cannot normally get close if not for some football event of “national interest”.” Via: Mail
