The basis of suffrage upon nationality/citizenship came about with the consolidation of the nation-state in the 19th and 20th centuries; before that - in the then minority of countries where voting rights even existed - suffrage was based upon residency, property ownership or membership of a certain class deemed as “citizens”.

It seems like it becomes a custom for French middle-aged men to be taken out of planes lately. The first one was Strauss-Kahn in New York and last week, it was Gérard Depardieu’s turn. He is said to have urinated in a bottle at his seat before take off on a Cityjet flight Continue Reading

Looking down at my feet (highly advisable in Berlin, where dogs have undisciplined owners…) I noticed that the heavy rains had sprouted a bouquet of vevelty mushroom - right tight against the crumbly brick wall - with some lush dandylions as next door neighbors.
All in all a peaceful coexistance.

Are killjoys, troublemakers and affect aliens a different kind of political agent? Could being at an impasse, or being stuck between numbness, apathy, shyness, ambivalence, melancholia, grief or rage become a starting point for alternative political concepts?
The program follows the idea that sizzling under the surface of feeling bad are lil’ moments of resistance and Continue Reading

The project encompasses approximately 10,000 black and white negatives. I found them last year in the attic of a former Communist newspaper building in Vinnitsa, Ukraine. During the last 20 years, since the Ukraine became an independent state, this material has been decomposing and was set to be discarded. With the help of an official Continue Reading

Guerrilla Knitting, like Guerrilla Gardening, is a new fad that is catching on quickly. As one blogger put it: Guerrilla Knitting is stealing graffiti artists the show.
