< 26.7 > XLterrestrials present a special Citizen Kino* beta test at a secret location in Berlin… monday, July 26. 21:00h.  If you would like to attend, please subscribe to our (infrequent) newsletter by writing to: Pod (at) XLterrestrials (dot) org

Added: Location/ Map HERE ( temporary link )

We’ll be testing out a new psychomedia analysis approach and gathering ideas from participants in order to create a ( von Trier-like ) Digital Dogme – 2010. Not about How to make media, but how we should utilize it, recycle + recontextualize it, and/or defend ourselves against its inherently problematic colonization of realtime.

more on that to come…

Added: Neukölln Mobile Kino write-Up:

*Tonight 9pm: Neukölln Mobile Kino*

> Instead of a regular film, tonight we will present a special night by our friend Dr Podinski of the multimedia team XLterrestrials.

Podinski will play a mash-up of interesting video clips, rare short films, strange images and other fascinating footage, selected from his
multi-terrabyte archive of film files collected over many years.

It is hard to explain, but fascinating to watch, so come along and be part of the experiment.

Also, Mehdi AKA Townes Syndrome will perform a few acoustic songs before the screening.

Don’t forget to bring something to sit on, a sweater for when it gets cooler, some coins to contribute to costs, and an FM radio if you have one. <

What: Multi-media video mash-up by Dr Podinksi, music by Townes Syndrome When: Tonight, Monday July 26, 9pm
Where: Lessinghöhe park, Neukölln. U7 Karl Marx Str.

We met Gentle Junk at a MultiMedia Kamp in Labin in 2007? … they did a beautiful LIVE vivesection of an automobile in the old Labin coal mine w/ a live soundtrack by a wonderful noiseband from Italia, (we’ll have to recall the name). They’ve got their hands in all those arts + praxis themes listed above , and always a few xtra tricks up there sleeves.

Added : We all met at the gallery today, and there’s a wicked dice game in the works with an added layer of dr. Podinski’s Over-the-Top artworld analysis, and Pedro Zaz – a MOdul8 adept -  and the XLt’s will be dj/vjing some wild bits.
