It feels as if the whole Internet is on holiday. Twitter and Tumblr are almost deserted at the moment. My own art blog is feeling neglected too, unfortunately I haven’t had the time yet to see any new films / exhibitions. I’ll get out soon and start reviewing, and also start interviewing young and upcoming artists.
In other cultural news:
I bought a copy of ‘After the Future’ by Franco Bifo Berardi - the book discusses how the future has been perceived, and why we lack such a utopian vision today.
I’ve really gotten into Spaghetti Westerns, having only recently watched the Dollars Trilogy. Mute Magazine has an article on the politics of Spaghetti Westerns.
I’m currently thinking about commissioning a series of portraits by various photographers, illustrators, and visual artists. This won’t be for a while though, most probably next year.
