Don't Panic congratulates Pro qm

Don't Panic

"2012 marks the 12th year anniversary of Berlin’s well-loved Pro qm book store. It was founded by Axel Wieder, Katja Reichard and Jesko Fezer, primarily as a place of discussion and exchange in a time of rapidly accelerating change in the city. Their aquisative interests in urban politics and visual culture resulted in a refreshing conceptual layout and consistently inspired stock and events programme; assets that have maintained their reputation as one of the best regarded bookshops in Berlin."

Urban Spacemag Nr. 4: Egourbanismus

Das Urban Spacemag Nr. 4 beleuchtet die Bedeutung und Macht des Partikularen in der Stadt. Wer darf entscheiden und wer entscheidet wirklich? Wer motiviert, wer hält auf, wer dreht um? Wer hat Recht und wer hat jetzt das Recht auf Stadt?

Stadt ist Verhandlungssache, und alle machen mit – ob bewusst, zufällig, aktiv, passiv, wütend, angepasst, nur für sich, für oder gegen alle.

This might also be a good moment to remind to the recent publication of William E. Jones' "Halsted Plays Himself about Fred Halsted and gay porn's first masterpiece from 1972, a sexually explicit, autobiographical, experimental film whose New York screening left even Salvador Dalí repeatedly muttering: "new information for me."

Archphoto 2.0 Radical City 01

Rdical City 01

The city is where Italian radical architecture represented and experimented its theories.
While the early projects remained theoretical proposals, some contributions by Archizoom, Superstudio, or Strum established an ambiguous relationship with design that became crucial after the international exhibition "Italy: the new domestic landscape", curated by Emilio Ambasz at the Museum of Modern Art New York in 1972. With the exception of Zziggurat, all participants, such as UFO, Gianni Pettena, Ugo La Pietra and 9999, chose the "piazza" - the public space - for their theoretical and practical experimentation as the adequate venue for installations and performances that used the same language as that of artists.
