Sad to hear about the passing of Stanley Brouwn (1935–2017), pioneer of Dutch conceptual art. Paramaribo-born and Amsterdam-based, his practice focused mainly on distances, measurements and directions; he was also involved in a couple of architectural projects. He leaves an amazing body of work:

Really enjoyed ‘Warming Up’, the small exhibition on Colombia-born, Amsterdam-based, Fluxus-related artist Michel Cardena (1934–2015). It’s currently running at Rozenstraat (A Rose is a Rose is a Rose), the new art space at Rozenstraat 59 (where SMBA / Bureau Amsterdam used to be). So when in town, do check it out:

Listening to Soundgarden tonight, while looking at the iconic sleeve of Badmotorfinger (so beautifully designed by Mark Dancey). A complete flashback to the early ’90s (and thus our early twenties). In retrospect, such strange, but also electrifying times:

Some random style counselling on a still sunny Sunday evening. The hopefulness (and pure spirit) of this song always gives us goosebumps. “Governments crack and systems fall / ’cause unity is powerful”. Pretty cool video as well – shot in Warsaw, circa 1985:

It was 50 years ago today. The liquidation of the Provo movement (on May 13, 1967) was in many ways more significant than its founding. More about this self-destructive act of “auto-provocation” can be read in this week’s episode of ‘Two or Three Things’ (our online archive on all things Provo and post-Provo):

Fantastic radio interview with Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. Very interesting to hear Ivy explain why the names of so many garage bands start with “Thee”. Personally, we always thought the whole ‘Thee’-thing was some sort of a reference to Aleister Crowley (and his ‘magickal’ use of Olde English), brought into popular culture by people like Billy Childish and Genesis P-Orridge – but no, we were...
