The Bureau of Public Secrets with an upgraded english version of “The Society Of The Spectacle” screened at ATA, and what about S.O.S. 2.0 you ask??

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

Monochrom’s leftist hemisphere Exploratorium

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

Well while we are awaiting some visuals from Sunday night’s Monochrom visit at the Exploratorium, we thought we should analyze the burning wreckage left by the prankmeisters of Vienna… Because any traces left by these articulate and transnational leg-pullers may have fair and future use for escaping your own homeland debris and finding/formatting more bricks [...]
