The ARD*POP-UP Festival took place in Oslo this November and was the first iteration of this festival, although the organizers hope to move it from city to city in the coming years. This year, the festival brought Pez, Kenor, Phlegm, and others to the streets of Oslo for some really fun murals, although it does look like they were concentrated in a pretty small area. Here are a few of my favorites:

Big Up… Bue the Warrior!

August 16th, 2011 | By | 1 Comment »

This is Belgium’s Bue the Warrior. Recently he’s been collaborating with Billy and Low Bros in Berlin on some fantastic walls and shutters, pictures of which I posted last week. I rather like his style, (maybe because it’s similar to a few other artists I like), so here a few of his other pieces from all around the world. Enjoy.

Zosen on postmodernism

July 28th, 2011 | By | 4 Comments »

Barcelona’s Zosen has a new video out called La catástrofe del postmodernismo or The catastrophe of postmodernism. In case you can’t read Spanish, here’s the English version of the John Zerzan quote he’s writing on the walls in this video:

Demoralized, derealized, dehistoricized: art that can no longer take itself seriously. The image no longer refers primarily to some `original’, situated elsewhere in the `real’ world; it increasingly refers only to other images. In this way it reflects how lost we are, how removed from nature, in the ever more mediated world of technological capitalism.

Postmodernism subverts two of the over-arching tenets of Enlightenment humanism: the power of language to shape the world and the power of consciousness to shape a self. Thus we have the postmodernist void, the general notion that the yearning for emancipation and freedom promised by humanist principles of subjectivity cannot be satisfied. Pm views the self as a linguistic convention; as William Burroughs put it, “Your `I’ is a completely illusory concept.”

And here’s the video:

Well, I was expecting to see my family today, but snow in London have half of them stuck there. Luckily, snow where I am in Colorado is keeping me busy. Too busy to post very much unfortunately. Here’s what I’ve been missing:
