Loads of exciting things this coming weekend ! We’re going to just toss up a bunch of links and come back for a more detailed overview. And also put up a # of things on our radar for what looks to be a wild ride summer…  “By the seat of our pants” as they say. We’re not sure what they meant, but it’s all part of the dada-or-die aesthetic.

< 27-29.05 > BETWEEN WINDOWS, Latin America and Beyond, a project from Mindpirates Verein and Side By Side Studios. < see full schedule > FB**k invite here.

“Jorge Luis Borges talked about a red fish swims backwards so the water will not get into its eyes in El libro de los seres imaginarios (The Book of Imaginary Beings), this red fish pops up whenever I am confronted with differences in thinking.

Between Windows attempts to initiate dialogues about and around Latin America to see if we can swim backwards together. Films, debates, book objects, political-cultural projects, live performances from Brazil, Uruguay, Chili, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and beyond.”

Live Streamed all weekend here by Arscenic and Groovalizacion

MilleniumLab

< 27.05 > A USER´S GUIDE FOR FOR MILLENIUM at Altes Finanz Amt, Berlin. Fb**k invite here

// Presentations by Juste Kostikovait (Kioskproject, Berlin) and Arantxa Mendiharat (Conexiones Improbables, Bilbao) //

This is the first of a series of sessions devoted to the backstage of artistic and cultural projects: money, precariousness, legal stuff, working conditions, etc. Those issues we usually address when the public event is over and we go for a beer, as if they were not a
structural part of what we do (even though we know they are).

( GReat Topics for all cultural producers !!!! Standby for an XLt report. )
