This upcoming Thursday I will be participating in BYOB - Bring Your Own Beamer, the worldwide event for using the video beamer as an instrument of art!

I plan to show my photographs as a digital sideshow, so check it out if you're in Copenhagen:

BYOB Copenhagen, April 28, 2011 17:00 - 22:00
Fabrikken for Kunst og Design
Sundholmsvej 46
2300 København S

Panzer: Pzkpfw II, Ausf A
Scaling in at 9500 Kg the panzer II was light enough to travel over wooden bridges. Judging from the lack of national markings on the Panzer and the commander wearing the Panzer beret, my guess is the photo was taken during pre-WWII manoeuvres.

A fine collection of American realist art from the time of the Great depression can be seen at weimarart.blogspot.com

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw IV, Ausf G
A group of Panzer IV's moving through a bleak Russian landscape during winter.
Note the front Panzer IV fitted with Ostketten, special wide tracks developped for the mud and snow of the eastern front. Judging from the protective covers on the maingun and MG 34 machinegun the photo was taken in a rear area far away from partisan and Red Army activity.

Saw Inside Job, the Academy Award winning documentary about what really happened when world economy broke down in 2008, watch it and scream in terror over both the moral and financial bankruptcy of the most powerful money handlers of this world and their willing helpers: Academia and President Obama...

*****
Panzer: Tiger I
Abandoned and damaged in a Polish town, early 1945.
This is one of the so -called "hybrid" Tigers where an early production turret has been retro-fitted to a late production hull with all steel road wheels.

I went to the big central library in Copenhagen City.
I was looking for a book about a photographer, I remembered what the cover of the book looked like but not the name of the photographer...

I had to give it up. So I went down to the Danish literature section, just to check...

Sure, same as always...his books weren't on the shelves. Always borrowed, really long waiting list. I can't make myself go and buy them, books are ridiculously expensive in this country, and he had to write a thirteen hundred page trilogy...

Can't get your books, Jakob Ejersbo, they're too busy being read.

Happy Birthday.

(newsflash: A close friend of Jakob's gave me a full set for free, how about that!)

German artist Hans Bellmer came from the good ol' days when artists received a thorough academic training at an esteemed institution before they went out and attacked bourgouis society.

They say art has lost the ability to chock and provoke - at least when it comes to sexual imagery...but here on the Internet you can check out some of the "Stars of chock" from days gone by at Gallery Lucifer (text mostly in Japanese)

Panzer: Tiger I, late production
Abandoned in the hills of Italy where sPzAbt 508 served as the only Tiger equipped unit. Note the open engine hatch and the two jerrycans on the ground.
