Does Permanence Matter? Ephemeral Urbanism

Does Permanence Matter? Ephemeral Urbanism

We live in the ephemeral era. As Zygmunt Bauman explained in his latest books, the globalization, among other things, had made all liquid and fragile. We are not in the same job until retirement, maybe we don’t have the same couple all of our life, and probably we are not going to live in the same house forever. The exhibition Does Permanence Matter? talks about this question from the perspective of ephemeral urbanism. Architecture and structures that are quickly erected and dismantled are the protagonists of this project. Oktoberfest in Munich, Burning…

This is how Alien Disko sounds

This is how Alien Disko sounds

Last weekend we went to the Alien Disko festival, an event from outer space for music lovers of all kinds. The second edition was plenty of different styles, as it was the first edition. If you wanted to hear something different and to let yourself go in melodies, sounds, noises, beats, and, in the end, music, that was your perfect festival. African sounds, electronic music, rock, indietronica… if we were dancing on another planet, maybe this would be the soundtrack. The night of the Friday began with Drahla, a band…

Araki. Tokyo

Araki. Tokyo

Consider that the visit to all Die Pinakotheken and the Museum Brandhorst only cost the ridiculous fee of 1 € on Sundays, visit a new exhibition or have time to explore the permanent collections is the best excuse to get out of the sofa on the laziest day of the week. The exhibition Araki. Tokyo about the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki is a must-see. Araki is known for his erotic pictures and for being a provoking person. This exhibition shows the work Tokyo from 1969 to 1973 with photos of him and…

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Sometimes you can feel nostalgic about something in the past you have never experienced. Looking back to the music made during the 60s this feeling can be even more tangible. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard is an Australian band formed in 2010 with reminiscences to a psychedelic and fuzzy past. They are so prolific and have published 11 albums so far. On top of that, this year they have published three full-length albums called Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe and Sketches of Brunswick East.  Their incredible energy is well-known around the…

Martin Parr: Souvenir

Martin Parr: Souvenir

Travelling is not something exclusive to rich people anymore. Nowadays almost everybody can travel and visit places that several years before were only accessible for a privileged few. The low-cost companies and the free market made that possible. Martin Parr is an exceptional photographer who shows the details of the common life with sarcasm. In the Souvenir exhibition, he shows how human beings behave while they are traveling. Some of the famous pictures the tourists made when they visit a new place are shown here from another perspective. The exhibition shows about 200…

Belle & Sebastian bring the sun in February

Belle & Sebastian bring the sun in February

The sweetest Scotish band on earth is coming to Munich on 16th of February. We will enjoy a tender night of indie-pop, delicate songs and meaningful lyrics with Belle & Sebastian, perfect for the cold winter. The Stuart Murdoch‘s band is the shelter for the shy and unpopular, the house of love and beauty of the daily life. With treasures of indie-pop music like their first album, Tigermilk, or the albums If You’re Feeling Sinister, The Boy with the Arab Strap, Dear Catastrophe Waitress and The Life Pursuit, this big band became…
