“The Earliest Time that Garbage Appeared on Earth is with the Birth of a Printing Press”

It was Brussels Poetry Festival 2017. I entered the legendary Belgian Cafe “La Fleur en Papier Doré”, the HQ of the Belgian surrealist movement in the 1920s, where Magritte, Paul Rouge and Marcel Lecomte were habitués. Now, 100 years later, somebody was rocking the room with contagious laughter mixed with “r” words in American accent. There they were: Kat Georges and Peter Carlaftes – the couple who runs “Three Rooms Press”, a New York-based independent publisher inspired by dada, punk, and passion. The couple began the publishing house in 1993,Read More

“F**kushima” of Bart Dewolf at KnowHate Campaign 2019

For the #KnowHate campaign 2019, Bart Dewolf, The Creator Of Existential Scrap Metal Installations, has prepared the installation called “F**kushima”. The scrap metal installation is a reflexion on fake truth on social media and Bart’s interpretation of hate as a tool used by powers ignorant to the continuation of (human)species, in order to gain/maintain more power and profit! The installation and the production drawings of Bart Dewolf are surrealistic interpretations that combine unexpected items which he uses as technic to evoke new meanings. This is done by assembling in a primitive wayRead More

Above the Babylon of Europe: ‘No Hate Bootcamp’ Experience

The photo of multicultural Europe of 2018 and the portrait of the pre-world wars Europe both depict the same mood: hate and dissonance. Nationalism was and still is perhaps the main cause. Nationalism transcended WWI and was the main force of WWII. In addition, the Yugoslav war of the 1990s and the conflict in Ukraine today are offshoots of nationalism. We are 70 years away from 1948, when The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted. And what do we have now, here, in the Babylon of Europe? That’s theRead More
