DAY 1

A beautiful little embryo of anarchy…

“Good performance at Volksbuhne 2nite…happening NOW… and neither Chris Dercon … nor Castorf … are directing it.” XLt analyst

It’s not a strike, it’s not exactly a premier,  nor is it a party … yet? …  but the Volksbuhne… is now unofficially re-opened by …  a community …  wanting more say in what happens next. An occupation has begun !

The beloved Berlin theater with its former east-side heart of radical playfulness , sharp cultural teeth and political punches ( the marquee has had several memorable titles the last years – Fuck Off, America ! – was one of the funniest ) …  closed its doors to a wild past this summer and said goodbye with a (bureaucratic) boot to its director of 3 decades… Frank Castorf, along with his team.

A deal was made in 2015 to bring in Chris Dercon from the Tate, and many of the theatre’s passionate fans have been hissing their disapproval ever since. It definitely feels like another gentrifying gear shift.

Just before the stale-mated German elections next week ( with a creeping threat of AFD nationalists gaining ground ) in the vacuum of relevant oppositions, this action could just be the best show in town to awaken civic engagement in a city that these days has felt a little stripped of its fire and raison d’être, at least in terms of an arts and culture resistance pulse.

Keep an eye on this unfolding  story ! Go by and see the developing dramatic narratives !

VB-plenums

The VB is LIBERATED !

… aka occupied / besetzt …  a core group of organizers ( who have been planning this for months ) prefer  – from their own tactical rational -  to call it a KUNST ACTION !

DAY 2:

“The PEOPLE’s THEATER … plenums begin at 14:00h16:ooh …. expect another full house performance !!

Recommended to come early… and maybe even come help clean from all the wild energies from last nite, help organize logistics of settling in, maintaining, securing … And/or find out how you might plug in to some of the most exciting and pragmatic political art … and art politics… in the city since … ? …  well, depends how often you look for the deep engagements. ” – XLt analyst.

Stay tune for more, analysis here will be extremely complex…

Initial impressions : The XLterrestrials are happy to inform you that the goals of this intervention seem to have already taken in the broader crises of current city politics. This is not just about reclaiming of Volksbune Theater , artists space, art labor and precarity, cultural creatives without a voice in the political bodies  … This is an autonomous zone and public forum stage ready to address many pressing issues about the people’s rights to their city.. . ( Stadt von Unten, Wir Bleiben Alle, Recalim the City, Miete Stoppen, etc. etc.  ) and this has, with full intent, strategically popped up on the eve of German elections,  this Sunday !

If you need a precedent to imagine the full scope and the potentials, take a look at what happened at the Teatro Valle in Rome, when artists and citizens fought austerity and cut-backs … which was occupied for 3 years, and subsequently transformed into a “theater commons”  …  :) …

A quickly searched link about that tale by David Bollier.

RT: via Ivor Stodolsky from Artists at Risk ” The Volksbühne is #occupied. The first play is named after the most powerful nuke of our time #vb6112 … LOL. It’s a great statement and vision: https://b6112.de/2017/09/22/pressetext-der-transmedialen-theaterinszenierung/

Day 3 Schedule ( highlight ) :

17:ooh Assembly on Stadt Politik

DAY 4 :

Everything is still open… too busy to analyze….

Beware the Orwellian media dog poo !

August 31st, 2017

polipoli123

{ in Btropolis, by Sozi36 ! }

Freedom is slavery, War is peace, Ignorance is strength, Antifascists are fascists …

Beware the Orwellian media dog poo !

There’s alot of nasty distraction going on out there in the mediaspheres… From the likes of Chomsky in Washington Examiner (  who probably never even quoted Chomsky til now )… Avila Chomsky on Common Dreams … and Chris Hedges at Truthdig… and a far worse and way off -the-mark flood of swampland thinking from the alt right outlets and the usual MSM…

Now is not the time to polarize the left…

And it would be a powerful moment with all this buzz about free speech to invite peeps like Chomsky and Hedges into a public debate … with high-caliber opposition from the grassroots to clear this mess up …  about #ANTIFA.

Let’s have actual voices of the Antifa perspectives, along with people like academic historian and author Mark Bray, and people from the world of mutual aid orgs like Common Ground ( also now an inspired “branch” in Houston ), Occupy, Indymedia, Direct Action groups, masked protectors, the justifiably angry youth, etc…

There is real danger that Antifa actors could escalate violent situations in certain contexts that would give most current governments excuse to crack down on a broad spectrum of left orgs + actors ( i..e the Linksunten Indymedia website in Germany was just shut down last week, very soon after the G20 demos )… But the newly risen alt right ( to the thrones of state )  in the US and other nationalist strains will attempt this no matter what happens next. Neoliberal governments are all just hair-triggers away from turning less rabid right govts. into The Turkish Model. It is true that the authoritarian forces ( and their alt right pawns ) will goad us into violence to their advantage, and we need to discuss that too !

But Antifascism cannot be defined as a violence-focused path, it is a much-needed community self-defense and realworld preparedness school.  It’s mutual aid and team “martial arts” for disarming ( and/or sabotaging ) the attackers, for well-being and the multi-layered fights to come, on both the neighborhoods, city-wide and internationalist scales !

If it is indeed a “marginal fringe”, as Chomsky was quoted as saying, we need now to link arms and expand the Antifa family and fast, not push it out of the main frame !

Dear LEFT, WE need to talk !

Manteuffel1_google1

{ O-strasse ! Interesting txt, read more below. }

While the communications conglomerates and the mostly-captured internet  steer this conversation in all the wrong directions, at least in terms of what dominates even a sophisticated surfers’ newsfeeds…

We need to launch a DESIRES OFFENSIVE !

Rather than merely fighting back against the rising tide of Trumpy Stew, HOW do we get better mobilized to push our goals to the front burner !? What we all need, want and wildlly desire NOW !

Easier said then done, but at least we have to get our compass and coordinates straight. And understand better who our comrades, alliances, and accomplices are…  even if our risks levels are not the same, and we draw our lines in the sand a little differently !

Technotopia, It Fails us Now ! … ( and 2morrow too )

August 24th, 2017

techborders3

On the XLt Art News radar…  we’re processing IT !

Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, critical theorist and media activist, had his original program dropped at Documenta 14…  His reading was canceled, and then reformatted, b/c he dared to conjure the Holocaust atrocities in relation to Europe’s necropolitical constructs and failures to grapple with all those drowning in the Mediterranean…

re: Auschwitz On The Beach, and the caving of the Documenta organizers

re: Shame on Us, A Reading and and Discussion ( replacement program, we hope the live stream archive will be posted soon  )

XLt inquiry:

Hmm, Wait ! Isnt the denial of centuries of plunder, slavery, colonialism, war-sponsoring and dictator-supporting in Africa and the Middle East by Europeans ( including Germans ) very similar to … the denial of the Holocaust ?!

Added: Below is a full text from Bifo, reposted from social media, explaining in detail the experiences at Documenta and about the program Shame On Us.

And Who Else ?!  … is challenging the noxious art marketed bubbles these days ?!

Meanwhile Ars Electronica 2017 in Linz… will idioticly drool once again for AI … perhaps Singularians and IT investors can unite and share their stock market tips, and hedge their bets for which wars and calamities resulting from the de-humanizing and ecocidal technospheres will be most profitable.

So, who will put the Great Technotopian Failure back on the ( forensics ) table ?! So we might finally depose all these parasitic corporate krapitalist hosts !

And XLterrestrials ask: Is Techno-Fascism bigger then a Rambo Schrump in a white hoodie ?!

Note: This is how the EU deals with a refugee crisis. Investing in expensive technologies to keep people out rather than saving lives and devising official strategies to rebuild the countries it has plundered and de-stabilized … for centuries :

Free Admission !

SE/GR 2017, 75 min | Original With English Subtitles | Regie: Patrik Öberg & Emil Ramos | Produktion: AEAAEA

Wed. 16.08.2017 | 8pm (introduction) 9pm (movie start) | Freilichtbühne Weißensee (Große Seestraße 8-10, 13086 Berlin)

A Swedish-Greek documentary film about the legal pressure in Europe and the people who stand up against the new wave of Nazis. Who are actually the antifascists and what does it antifascism really stand for? This question is examined in the light of certain events in the recent years in Greece and Sweden. The film investigates the rise of the fascist party »Golden Dawn« (»Chrysi Avgi«), which is responsible for numerous murders in Greece in addition to the attempted murder of the left-wing football activist Showan Shattak in Sweden and the imprisonment of antifascist Joel. Joel has been in jail since 2013 after the defended a rally against Nazis. The attackers belonged to the »Nordic Resistance Movement« (»Nordiska Motståndsrörelsen«) which is regarded as the largest and most dangerous Nazi organization in Sweden. »The Antifascists« tried to track the history along with the theoretical background of antifascism and shows what it really means to be an antifascist.  Before the film, there will be an input from 8pm onwards, where activists will report on the situation in Sweden and Greece.

ART, RESISTANCE AND REBELLION ON THE NET

The Call to join the cybernetic edition of CompArte  “Against Capital and its Walls, All the Arts”

READ THE FULL TEXT :

(( HERE en espanol )))

((( HERE in english ))

an Excerpt:

- July, 2017 -

Compañeroas, compañeras and compañeros of the Sixth:

Artist and non-artist sisters and brothers [hermanoas, hermanas and hermanos] of Mexico and the world: Avatars, screennames, webmasters, bloggers, moderators, gamers, hackers, pirates, buccaneers and streaming castaways, anti-social network users, reality show antipodes, or whatever-you-call each person on the network, the web, the internet, cyberspace, virtual reality, or whatever-it’s-called:

We are convoking you because there are some questions that are nagging at us:

Is another internet, that is to say another network, possible? Can one struggle there? Or is that space without precise geography already occupied, captured, coopted, tied, annulled, etceterized? Could there be resistance and rebellion there? Can one make Art on the net? What is that Art like? Can it rebel? Can Art on the net resist the tyranny of codes, passwords, spam as the default search engine, the MMORPGs [massively multiplayer online role-playing games] of the news on social networks where ignorance and stupidity win by millions of likes?

Does Art on, by, and for the net trivialize and banalize the struggle, or does it potentiate it and scale it up, or it is “totally unrelated, my friend, it’s art, not a militant cell”?

Can Art on the net claw at the walls of Capital and damage it with a crack, or deepen and persist in those that already exist? Can Art on, by, and for the net resist not only the logic of Capital, but also the logic of “distinguished” Art, “real art”? Is the virtual also virtual in its creations? Is the bit the raw material of its creation? Is it created by an individual? Where is the arrogant tribunal that, on the Net, dictates what is and what is not Art? Does Capital consider Art on, by, and for the net to be cyberterrorism, cyberdelincuency? Is the Net a space of domination, domestication, hegemony and homogeneity? Or is it a space in dispute, in struggle? Can we speak of a digital materialism? …

To try to find some answers, we invite you all to participate…

Some initial XLterrestrials notes…

Similar to our ( c.200,000+ inter- + outer-nationals ) recent journey to Hamburg to confront, analyse, and strategize in the virtual insanities of an increasingly absurd geopolitical regime of the G20-constructed matrix … the EZLN call for some deep introspection and/or an all-out solidarity offensive in the cybernetic realm !

The XLterrestrials are preparing to put some alien skin in the game ! Our long-developing  critiques of “technotopia” and the rise of Techno-Fascism should fit right in as accomplice cultures of resistance !

“¡Hasta la victoria siempre!”

About our own XLterrestrials Framework for participation…

Not only have we been trying to assess all of the rapid developments in the cybernetic regime changes, ie. disruption in human and non-human environmental situations over the last years, with a particular edge-of-our-seat interests in the “Anthropocene” debates…  We have also shifted our own position to take into account what the tsunami of corporate technological neo-colonialism means for indigenous cultures. Signs of how their plights were dealt with at the Cop21 – climate summit – in Paris, namely thrown for a (genocidal) loop under the bus … we can come to no other conclusion then the threat of Techo-fascism is not just on the rise, it is the motherfuckin artificial elephant in the room !

So the call from the indigenous perspective to ask the big questions, which essentially amount to, SO, WHAT THE FUCK NOW ?! is absolutely necessary, and is coming far to slow from those in the global north still trying to wrestle, tweak and tango with the technological beast to gather a few community crumbs. Others have just blatantly put on their uniforms and are doing the dirty work for a high bounty.

Not surprisingly, many former techno-evangelists are finally turning the corner and admitting the massive miscalculations and failed startegies that have been made. Though anyone who has spent the years lingering between now and the proof via the Snowden revelations to do so, probably deserve ridicule.

Recently Oliver Lerone Schulz ( a Post-media Lab co-founder at Leuphana Uni ) posted this astoundingly concise history of the spectacular failures of the Left’s own technotopian dreaming, from a very respected media studies teacher Florian Cramer speaking in Bucharest for the Odd Theory series … it is worth a close listen! HERE on Soundcloud

… And it becomes a framework and launching point for our questions at this critical juncture of tactical media and “art rebellion”. One might remember the now historical and legendary message(s) the Zapatistas and Subcommandante Marcos ( and sent to an independent media conference in the mid 1990s in NYC).  HERE, ( the 1997 interview ) The questions raised now are again a bridge between Chiapas, the jungles of southeastern Mexico and NYC, and with the potential of a much broader network via the expanded  digital culture more than 2 decades later. Definitely not tools to be sneezed at, but not something we should consider by any means under our control nor a liberated space.

All this aligns with what is being asked in the call for participation by the Comparte Digital… a project initiated by the creators of such projects as Possible Worlds ( a former server host for the EZLN and other Chiapas-based networks ), Spacebank, Diego de la Vega, etc. etc…


Guests tonite include a broad mix: members of the Telekommunisten, C-base, colleagues from the HKW’s Anthropocene and Technosphere seminars,  Bootlab, Raumfahrt Agentur, comrades from the OKK and TOP galeries, Colombian artists and curators based in Berlin, jury members from the UDKs Interflug project, Transmediale’s resource, XLterrestrials, Globalista Radio Kit djs, CiTiZEN KiNO… and … YOU?!

CiTiZEN KiNO #62: G20 Report Back + Sunken Treasures

July 14th, 2017

CK62_poster11

_________ + ________

image: ship simulator extremes ( search )

____+___

We are definitely NOT done with analyzing the G20 stories !

For the XLterrestrials it remains a pivotal event / moment to extract new maps for citizen engagements. There is fascinating ‘forensic data’ on the authoritarian ultra-liberal state(s) and analyzing how it reacts in its failure to imagine any real plans for exiting their own catastrophes. In addition, to co-opt Merkel’s own words ( in response to Imperial Schrump’s first EU + Middle East visit – pre-G20 ) who said that the EU now needed to take its fate into its own hands…  Well, more importantly that means autonomous communities must now build better and stronger ties to steer their fates, and unlike any plans for EU re-alignments,  power plays and economic priorities, we must find our own means and methods for global solidarity + sustainability on the local scales.

- Upcoming Event + Support -

< Sun. July 23 > CiTiZEN KiNO #62: A G20 Report Back + Sunken Treasures, at Panke, Gerichtstr,23, Btropolis, 21:00h.

[[ the Frackbook invite ]]

Note: C-KiNO is a crucial element of  our media outreach objectives. We cannot exist as online projects alone. It is essential to interact with communities and share our analysis, so that it does not exist as mere theoretical bubbles. We would like to tour and perform and present at social centers and be able to dialogue and collaborate with YOU about building new community ties and strategies.

If you would like us to come to your area to share our perspectives and tactical media platforms, please contact us. We DO need funds to travel, but we are also open to trying to make events for free and/or by donation only.

And if you understand the need for this kind of education and praxis in these dangerous times and are in a position to support us financially, please consider donating to either our Patreon account ( link  ) or Paypal (email us for more info ).

Many Thanks to those who helped support our trip to Hamburg !!

An XLT epilogue – The Meaning of Hamburg : The G20 God Is Dead ! v.7

July 11th, 2017

g20isdead_01

_______ … _______ … ______ … _______

” G20 is dead. G20 remains dead. What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives. What sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become autonomous self-ruling communities now that nation-states and failed democracies cannot lead a civil and enlightened society ?! “

- in a mad Nietzschean XLt Analyst accent

_________

work-in-progress

Without getting too philosophical and over-intellectualizing about it, the G20 mafioso elites gathering in Hamburg to listen to Beethoven’s Ode To Joy at the Elbe Philharmonie can only prove a definitive end of our supposed Enlightenment Era !

In the midst of all the environmental, economic and humanitarian crises, any lingering faith in nation-state democracies leading the way to international diplomacy and the progress of civil society and cultures, the rational and the common good (  and/or any plan remotely resembling getting us out of a grim global-scale future deathtrap )  now represents a bloated corpse washing up on the shores of a hellish new irrational alliance, a conglomerate techno-fascism, a basket case of political clowns crammed into a VW Bug driving off a cliff…  all in the wake of a haunting, immoral secular silence !

[ Not unlike the existential crisis at the end of the 19th century, perhaps it's interesting to consider Nietzsche's odd language for perceiving the 20th century's calamities far ahead of his own situations .... the original "God is Dead" via wikipedia. In brief. : " The problem is to retain any system of values in the absence of a (divine) order... The rejection of belief in an objective and universal moral law, binding upon all individuals. ... the loss of an absolute basis for morality leads to nihilism. " ]

Forgive us, if we grab at a little dramatic, dada-esque poetic and/or anachronistic philosophical terror in an attempt to underscore the scope of this monumental historical disaster, not yet fully perceivable ! [ And even perhaps surreally, invertedly alluding to spiritual matters as a facet of our necessary social + cultural evolution, survival, and new consciousness. But we have no time to elaborate on that here. ]

Aside from the grimmer angles, There were also many stories that are a wellspring of inspiration and new directions… and Hamburg’s left communities are themselves a bounty of “social organism treasures”, like exploring rich coral reefs in the bowels of a post-modern industrialist shipwreck. There’s several articles worth of material; Let’s see what we have time for  !

flakturm_00111

The Rise of The Autonomous Circles

Foto: This technological landscape backdrop of an old Nazi Flakturm ( bunker with a strategic, anti-aircraft purposed design, now turned into a niteclub and SAE school ) and the Hamburger Fernsehen Turm ( tv tower / telecommunications spectrum ) … and in  the foreground the football training fields, where the protester youth gathered inbetween the street demos, is more poignant a picture then you may at first grasp.

Missing from this pic is the militarized police helicopters who controlled the airspace of the port city. Often floating stationary above the scene below for hours at a time, gathering data that we can only speculate on. And if you were wondering why there is no drone footage in your G20 newsfeeds, it’s because the city pre-emptively ruled them illegal, in order to have exclusive control of powerful tools from the air. As far as we know, No one was willing to disobey the rule. We suspect the penalties would be high, b/c of endangering the numerous helicopter pilots.

Re: Electronic Warfare

This is a far off tangent, but comes to mind because of the juxtaposiiton of a 3rd Reich bunker, a telecommunications tower, and the people w/ little other than the power of  ‘critical mass’ and our community bonds.  One of the most incredible things we’ve seen lately analyzing the history of electronic warfare and the age of Silicon Valley…

Watch: Steve Blank’s Secret History of Silicon Valley

Understanding this territory will be crucial in the overall picture of organizing against a society of control ( and nihilism ). Not to say , we have many answers or strategies there, b/c mostly the hacker cultures have failed to properly assess the cybernetic regime.
