      from Natacha Paganelli Added 20.8K 300 16

      The video installation "Kolo/Dance" spreads a spectacular enchantment which could remind some minimalist version of the choreographic inventions of the time of Russian Ballets... It makes appear in the style of kaleidoscope the fiction of one popular vitality stemming from the Nature, realizing at the same time as it reveals the utopia which animated the attempts to establish a national spirit in Former Yugoslavia on the reconstruction of folk traditions.

      • Hitler about tentacles, hands and nationalism


        from PiretBCN Added 26 1 12

        I have been a nationalist all my life. I was raised as one and I will die as one (hopefully not for the Fatherland - mine, not Hitler's). Oberleutnant Krafft seems to think it's sweet to die for the Fatherland. Maybe it's necessary sometimes, but sweet? Get real, man! However, every time I tell someone I am a nationalist, I automatically start to think of Wittgenstein and his famous hand. Before discussing a term, we have to agree that it means the same to us. If I raise my hand and say: "This is a hand," you have to agree it's a hand. Otherwise we are talking about different things. Hitler's nationalism and my nationalism are very different things. Hitler's nationalism was exclusive and destructive. I am a national cosmopolitan. I am curious about other cultures, languages but I am proud of my identity and don't want it to disappear (No Generalplan Ost or vicious Russification or any other type of soft or not so soft genocide, please!). I firmly believe that it's very good to live in other countries because it makes you more open to things but it's truly evil to be a colonist. When in Rome... A funny detail about exclusive nationalism: it's often the default option of monolingual members of big nations. They don't need to talk about it. They just exercise it because they have the power of big numbers behind them. A monolingual member of a big nation accusing a member of a small nation (who can speak 5-10 languages) of exclusive nationalism, is überstrange. Yet it happens every single day. The films used are not my property. My actions are fair use and belong to the realm of überfreaky humour. It is not obligatory to watch this video.

                      Cette performance audiovisuelle réalisée sur Processing aborde le difficile problème de l'émigration Sud-Nord. Inspirée par la tendance de plus en plus inquiétante d'une majorité de pays européens à fermer leurs frontières, elle met en scène la souffrance d'individus qui ont fuit la misère ou la dictature de leur pays pour ne trouver que rejet et péril. Loin de vouloir dénoncer l'attitude d'une population dont l'île est malgré elle devenue un symbole, elle se contente de dresser le portrait peu flatteur d'une civilisation qui fait le choix du repli sur soi. This audiovisual performance built with Processing addresses the difficult problem of South-North migration. Inspired by the worrying trend of a majority of European countries to close their borders, it depicts the suffering of individuals who fled poverty or dictatorship in their country only to find rejection and jeopardy. Far from wishing to denounce the attitude of a population whose island has in spite of themselves became a symbol, it simply draws the unflattering portrait of a civilization who makes the choice of withdrawal.
