Vermibus: “Dissolving Europe”

Doku über die Arbeit des Berliner Künstlers Vermibus: “Dissolving Europe is the new public art work that stormed Europe this year from Vermibus. Using a dubious inter-rail ticket, Vermibus set out with a set of 90 keys and his pallet of solvents to physically and temporally highjack the western world of advertisements in the name of fine art. Each site is carefully deliberated with its environment, from Rolex boutiques, to archaic museums. The system looks simple in movement: unlock and roll the advertising poster to create a huge blank gleaming white breath of fresh air in the urban environment. The advert then undertakes the process of counter action painting using a series of solvents and brushes, it is then replaced in another site, another city, another country.”

Watchlist: VELI & AMOS

Das slowenisch-schweizerische Künstlerduo Veli Silver (* 1983) & Amos Angeles (* 1986) hat eine wunderbare Reihe von Action-Painting-Performances mit Sprühdosen realisiert (u.a. mit dem einzigartigen Christian Falsnaes). Und nebenbei hat das Duo auch noch einen Film über sich selbst gedreht – und diesen kurzerhand “Style Wars 2” genannt. Frech, frech. Übrigens auch absolut hörbar: die Musikvideos/Songs der zwei Tausendsassa…

“Style Wars 2 is a graffiti documentary produced by Veli and Amos, a Swiss-Slovenian artist duo. The movie is a sequel of the cult movie “Style Wars” from 1983 and gives an update on today’s graffiti and street art scene, in a very unique and entertaining format. 30 years after the release of Style Wars, the movie that helped spread the graffiti movement from New York around the world, Veli and Amos, the producers and main protagonists of Style Wars 2, hit the road to discover new graffiti styles and meet the artists behind. A wild journey takes them from Europe to New York and the Middle East, from galleries to war zones. The movie is a well-quoted homage to the original Style Wars movie and at the same time tells the personal story of Veli and Amos. Even though the movie’s main focus is on graffiti, it approaches the topic in a much broader way, and also alludes to politics, art and lifestyle.”

“S.O.S.”, 2013

“Banana Memorial”, 2013: “This memorial that is supposed to honour black soldiers, who fought under the French flag between 1830 and 1962 is situated in a remote park in Toulouse, France. Located between railway tracks, a supermarket and a parking lot it is a transit spot, where passers-by hurry along with full grocery bags or where they take their dogs for a walk around the stinking curbs. I consider the location and the very existence of this memorial as a mockery of black people. Let’s not forget that France used soldiers of African heritage to conquer new colonies. History shows that the goals of European powers were often in contrast to the interests of black people. Even today France asserts its imperial goals all over the world and sometimes not just by peaceful means. Scarred souls of the inhabitants of post-colonial countries or today’s French immigration policy clearly prove, that the time of colonialism is not yet over. Present-day colonialism is more of a cultural nature, but for that, not less dangerous. Today’s Europe with its problematic immigration laws often perceives immigrants as exotic fruit, that brings us from faraway places a culture more colourful than our own. I think this attitude is as xenophobic and potentially dangerous as open racism. My “Banana memorial” is an artistic metaphor of how the strongly nationalistic French society views other races. Its title is derived from the expression “banana republic”.”

Oops They Did It Again: Brakay in Grottaglie

So kann das Jahr zu Ende gehen: Mit einem letzten Gipfeltreffen im italienischen Grottaglie. Angelo von Studiocrombie/Fame Festival hat sich entschlossen in diesem Jahr kein Festival mehr zu machen, sondern nur noch Ausstellungen und Projekte mit Künstlern, die er gerne mag. Und so gibt es am 14. Dezember, ab 19 Uhr, noch einmal ein Projekt/Ausstellung/Performance/Aktion vom “Tag Team” der “Street”-”Art”: Brad Downey & Akay. Sicher eine Weihnachtsreise nach Italien wert!
