How much do I really understand about WikiLeaks? I love the PBS show Frontline and they have an interesting report about WikiLeaks that they put online. It poses some really interesting questions, check it out here.
One of my favorite artists is Albert Oehlen. How does he make the failure of painting seem so effortless? His tinkering with technology has allowed him to rebuild, with seemingly familiar tools, echoes of the worlds around us. The work can appear as lost as we are in our lives, cyber space, or whatever, while still being tethered to forces beyond our control.
The writer Chris Kraus has an art show on right now in Brooklyn at Real Fine Arts. Her writing is really good so I was curious to see some old films of hers. She says they have nothing to do with her now, but that doesn’t matter. Things that we’ve done or parts of ourselves long past can still be celebrated.
