David Lynch & Kristine McKenna: Room to Dream

David Lynch – co-creator of Twin Peaks and writer and director of groundbreaking films such as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive – opens up about a lifetime of extraordinary creativity, the friendships he has made along the way and the struggles he has faced – sometimes successful, sometimes not – to bring his projects to fruition.

Part-memoir, part-biography, Room to Dream interweaves Lynch’s own reflections on his life with the story of those times, as told by Kristine McKenna, drawing from extensive and explosive interviews with ninety of Lynch’s friends, family members, actors, agents, musicians and collaborators. Lynch responds to each recollection and reveals the inner story of the life behind the art.

David Lynch advanced to the front ranks of international cinema in 1977 with the release of his first film, the startlingly original Eraserhead. Since then, Lynch has been nominated for three Best Director Academy Awards for The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, was awarded the Palme d’Or for Wild at Heart and has established himself as an artist of tremendous range and wit. In 1990, Twin Peaks mania swept the world when his groundbreaking television series premiered on ABC. A new season of Twin Peaks aired in May 2017 to widespread acclaim.

Kristine McKenna is a widely published critic and journalist who wrote for the Los Angeles Times from 1977 to 1998. Her profiles and criticism have appeared in Artforum, The New York Times, Artnews, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone Magazine.

“Everybody has theories about what the show is about, which is great, and it wouldn’t matter if I explained my theory. Things have harmonics, and if you’re true to an idea as much as you can be, then the harmonics will be there and they’ll be truthful even though they may be abstract” David Lynch in the New York Times on his new book, Room to Dream.

Josefin Arnell winner Theodora Niemeijer prize 2018

The Theodora Niemeijer prize 2018 is awarded to Josefin Arnell. This was announced last Saturday during a ceremony in the auditorium of the Van Abbemuseum. Arnell will develop the project THE TICK in Het Oog (The Eye) in the Van Abbemuseum for half a year, starting end of September 2018, and in addition receives prize money of €10.000.

The jury felt inspired by the ambiguous world Josefin tries to create. What first appears as a sugar coated dreamy cartoonlike world in which millennial girls like to dwell, can suddenly turn into a horror scenario and back.

The second place is for Joy Mariama Smith, the third place for Isabelle Andriessen; they will receive €2.500 and €1.500 respectively. During this fourth edition of the Theodora Niemeijer prize, the jury had to select from nearly 100 project proposals.

The Theodora Niemeijer prize was introduced in 2012 by the Stichting Niemeijer Fonds and the Van Abbemuseum because women are still a minority in exhibitions and museum collections.

The prize is awarded once every two years to an artist living and working in the Netherlands who graduated at most five years ago. It is the only Dutch prize for visual arts dedicated specifically to women artists. Previous winners were Sissel Marie Tonn in 2016, Sachi Myachi in 2014 and Sarah van Sonsbeeck in 2012.

This years jury: Andrea Davina, board member Stichting Niemeijer Fonds; Diana Franssen, curator and head of research Van Abbemuseum; Juliette Jongma, director Galerie Juliette Jongma; Iris Kensmil, artist; Gabriëlle Schleijpen, artistic director Dutch Art Institute.

Josefin Arnell winner Theodora Niemeijer prize 2018
THE TICK presented in the Van Abbemuseum starting end of september 2018

THE TICK is a proposal by Josefin Arnell in which she would like to develop a sculpture in the shape of a monstrous giant tick that you can climb on. The sculpture will work as a playground in Het Oog for the viewer to discover in a playful way a mutated scary tick. Arnell would like to develop a sensor that sends signals when climbing or sitting on the sculpture, which fills the air with sound.

ELO 2018 Mind The Gap!

The Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) holds its 2018 Conference and Festival, hosted by the Université du Québec à Montréal from 13 to 17 August 2018.

The Conference, the Festival and Exhibits will be held August 13th to 17th in downtown Montréal, Québec, Canada. Mind the Gap! will be bilingual, with both English and French tracks, showcasing Montreal’s important and dynamic local Québécois e-lit/digital arts community and extending a special welcome to e-lit’s global francophonie.

The aim of this conference is to think about e-lit in a digital culture. What is its relationship to current cultural practices and trends?

Two directions are proposed: explorations and interventions. The first direction features e-lit’s exploratory nature, its formal aspects, its use of technology, its renewal of narrative conventions, and at the same time its impact on literary theories and methodologies to renew themselves.

The second direction considers e-lit’s place in the public sphere, its relationship to digital and urban culture, to forms of conservation and presentation, and also to performance.

EN ROUTE ELLEN RIJK – Een tentoonstelling over onderweg

In de tentoonstelling EN ROUTE brengt beeldend kunstenaar Ellen Rijk een aantal recente grotere werken samen rond de thematiek van de ‘reis’, het onderweg zijn, waar ga je naar toe en waar ben je thuis. Met titels als Schuilboot of Troostvloot en Horizon nodigt zij de kijker uit tot bezinning, los van de waan van de dag, maar niet los van een wereld die volop in beweging is en vol verschillende identiteiten.


Zij toont haar schepen om te reizen, om te vluchten, gedwongen of gewoon meegevoerd in een tocht als over de Styx of om in te schuilen als in een kleine kapel of een kerk. Kaarten, foto’s en getijden om een reis of een thuis vast te leggen.

In de volksmond heet zij de Vredeskerk: O.L. Vrouw Koningin van de Vrede aan de Ringbaan West.De kerk, gebouwd in 1953, geopend in 1954, geldt als een van de hoogtepunten van de Tilburgse wederopbouwarchitectuur en is ontworpen door N.H. Pontzen, architect te Tilburg.

Sinds 2015 is zij buiten gebruik. Het gebouw is in het kader van de ontwijding ‘gestript’. Door de versobering komen de superieure verhoudingen sterk tot hun recht en nodigt de ruimte nog meer uit tot contemplatie, tot stilte en bezinning. Het lijkt de ideale entourage voor EN ROUTE ELLEN RIJK.

Ellen Rijk (Ossendrecht 1955) volgde na de Academie voor Beeldende Vorming in Tilburg de Academie voor Kunst en Vormgeving te Den Bosch, afdeling keramiek.  Haar werk was recentelijk te zien in o.a.: Tilburg, Luycks Gallery, Fort de Vaux; Den Bosch, Boschparade, Tilburg, Beyond Borders; Diessen, Landart Diessen; Bedburg-Hau (Duitsland), Artoll Kunstlabor; Akhalkalaki, Kaspi, (Georgië) Art Villa Garikula; Tilburg, voormalige Franciscanessenkapel; Schijndel, KEG; Parijs (Frankrijk) Theatre de Vanves; Bourges (Frankrijk), Biennale d’Art Contemporaine; Zagreb (Kroatie), Galerija Klovecevi dvori, Kiev (Oekraïne), SpringWindFestival; Maastricht, Festival Cement; Maagdenburg (Duitsland), IVde International Kunstfestival

Call on Iran to free Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe


Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been imprisoned in Iran for nearly two years on bogus charges. She hasn’t committed any crime.

Nazanin has been told that she could be charged again and face another trial imminently, which may result in an even longer prison sentence.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a 39-year-old British-Iranian woman, who ordinarily lives with her husband and young daughter in London.  She works for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, a UK-based media charity. This has been used against her as evidence of ‘membership of an illegal group’, the charge that Nazanin was found guilty of at an unfair trial which saw her sentenced to five years in prison

She was arrested on 3 April 2016 at a Tehran airport, when she was about to board a plane home to the UK with her then one-year-old daughter, Gabriella. They had been on holiday in Iran visiting Nazanin’s parents – a trip Nazanin had made many times before, without incident.

At the airport, they were stopped by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Nazanin was taken into custody, without being told why, and Gabriella was given to her grandparents, who had accompanied them to the airport. Gabriella’s UK passport was confiscated at the airport (she does not have an Iranian passport), though it has since been returned.

When Nazanin was first detained, she wasn’t told why. She was put in solitary confinement. She was held in solitary for 45 days, and could not speak to her family or a lawyer. Her family were not told the reasons for her imprisonment.

Nazanin did not have a fair trial. She was only allowed access to a lawyer three days before her trial. In September 2016, Nazanin was sentenced to five years in prison for ‘membership of an illegal group’.

Nazanin’s physical and mental health is suffering. She suffers from severe arm, neck and back pain as a result of her prison conditions, and her hair is falling out. Nazanin’s husband has most recently said that she is worried about lumps on her breast.

Her family say that Nazanin has been extremely distressed and depressed during her imprisonment and separation from Gabriella. Last November, Nazanin wrote a suicidal letter to her family. A year has passed and her mental health has continued to decline.

The Iranian authorities have a track record of not allowing prisoners the healthcare they need – especially for people imprisoned on political charges – and this is sadly the case for Nazanin too.

◊ Amnesty International UK asks to take action. We (FDM mag.) support their work.

◊ Help get Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe home.

◊ Call on Iran to free Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

Out now: Kerouac on Record. A Literary Soundtrack


Out now:
Kerouac on Record ◊ A Literary Soundtrack
Edited by Simon Warner and Jim Sampas

Co-edited by Jack Kerouac’s nephew, including pieces written by Kerouac himself as well as interviews from major literary and musical figures including Allen Ginsberg, Lee Konitz and David Amram, Kerouac on Record gives a unique insight into how Kerouac brought his passion for jazz to his full creative output.

Kerouac on Record is the touchstone for the music of Kerouac – Kerouac’s love for music, the depth of its influence on his work, and the influence that his work continues to extend to waves of contemporary musicians, from David Bowie and Janis Joplin to Sonic Youth. It is a book rife with the work of cultural icons, essential for any fan of the Beat Generation and popular music alike.

About Kerouac on Record
He was the leading light of the Beat Generation writers and the most dynamic author of his time, but Jack Kerouac also had a lifelong passion for music, particularly the mid-century jazz of New York City, the development of which he witnessed first-hand during the 1940s with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk to the fore.

The novelist, most famous for his 1957 book On the Road, admired the sounds of bebop and attempted to bring something of their original energy to his own writing, a torrent of semi-autobiographical stories he published between 1950 and his early death in 1969.

Yet he was also drawn to American popular music of all kinds – from the blues to Broadway ballads – and when he came to record albums under his own name, he married his unique spoken word style with some of the most talented musicians on the scene.

Kerouac’s musical legacy goes well beyond the studio recordings he made himself: his influence infused generations of music makers who followed in his work – from singer-songwriters to rock bands.

Some of the greatest transatlantic names – Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, Van Morrison and David Bowie, Janis Joplin and Tom Waits, Sonic Youth and Death Cab for Cutie, and many more – credited Kerouac’s impact on their output.

In Kerouac on Record, we consider how the writer brought his passion for jazz to his prose and poetry, his own record releases, the ways his legacy has been sustained by numerous more recent talents, those rock tributes that have kept his memory alive and some of the scores that have featured in Hollywood adaptations of the adventures he brought to the printed page.

Simon Warner
is a journalist, lecturer and broadcaster who teaches Popular Music Studies at the University of Leeds in the UK. He has, over a number of years, written live reviews and counterculture obituaries for The Guardian and The Independent, and has a particular interest in the relationship between the Beat Generation writers–Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and others–and rock culture. His previous books include Rockspeak: The Language of Rock and Pop (1996) and Howl for Now: A Celebration of Allen Ginsberg’s epic protest poem (2005). – Writes: Popular Music, North American Literature – Author of : Kerouac on Record, Text and Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Jim Sampas
is a music and film producer. His musical works often focuses on major cultural figures such Jack Kerouac (who is his Uncle), The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones. He has persuaded a galaxy of stars to partake of a unique aesthetic marriage, as vintage works are resurrected in contemporary arrangements in projects covered by such major news outlets as People Magazine, NPR, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and many others. – Writes: Popular Music, North American Literature – Author of: Kerouac on Record

Following Text and Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Beats and Rock Culture (2013), Simon Warner partners with Literary Executor of the Estate of Jack Kerouac, Jim Sampas, to go deeper into his exploration of the connections between the great figures of the Beat generation and the music of the so-called ‘rock era.’ Interspersed with exclusive interviews of the likes of Lee Konitz, Graham Parker, Lester Bangs, and Allen Ginsberg, the twenty chapters are signed by an impressive array of journalists, music industry professionals, rock critics, writers, film makers and academics from all over the world. Addressing such issues as the influence of jazz on Kerouac’s ‘spontaneous prose’ style, the lineage between his ‘Beat bop prosody’ and Patti Smith‘s ‘punk rock poetry,’ or his inspiring ‘the myth of the American road’ in Bruce Springsteen’s lyrics, they shed light on what appears to be a two-way relationship between popular music and the work of the author of On the Road. As Warner puts it: ‘if, for Kerouac, it was jazz that would have the principal impact, then it was rock on which the writer would have the main effect.’” – Olivier Julien, Lecturer in the History and Musicology of Popular Music, Paris-Sorbonne University, France

Philippe Claudel: L’Archipel du Chien

Le dimanche qui suivit, différents signes annoncèrent que quelque chose allait se produire.

Ce fut déjà et cela dès l’aube une chaleur oppressante, sans brise aucune. L’air semblait s’être solidifié autour de l’île, dans une transparence compacte et gélatineuse qui déformait ça et là l’horizon quand il ne l’effaçait pas : l’île flottait au milieu de nulle part. Le Brau luisait de reflets de meringue.

Les laves noires à nu en haut des vignes et des vergers frémissaient comme si soudain elles redevenaient liquides. Les maisons très vite se trouvèrent gorgées d’une haleine éreintante qui épuisa les corps comme les esprits.

On ne pouvait y jouir d’aucune fraîcheur.

Puis il y eut une odeur, presque imperceptible au début, à propos de laquelle on aurait pu se dire qu’on l’avait rêvée, ou qu’elle émanait des êtres, de leur peau, de leur bouche, de leurs vêtements ou de leurs intérieurs. Mais d’heure en heure l’odeur s’affirma. Elle s’installa d’une façon discrète, pour tout dire clandestine. »

Écrivain traduit dans le monde entier, Philippe Claudel est aussi cinéaste et dramaturge. Il a notamment publié aux éditions Stock Les Âmes grises, La Petite Fille de Monsieur Linh, Le Rapport de Brodeck et L’Arbre du pays Toraja. Membre de l’académie Goncourt, il réside en Lorraine où il est né en 1962.

Schlecky Silberstein: Das Internet muss weg. Eine Abrechnung

Eine fundamentale Abrechnung mit dem Internet von einem der einflussreichsten Blogger der Republik

Ausgerechnet Schlecky Silberstein, Kultakteur in der Netzgemeinde, propagiert diesen Leitspruch: »Das Internet muss weg.« Der Blogger und Online Comedian kennt das Netz wie seine Westentasche. Und gerade deshalb warnt er davor. Dank Fake News, Filterblasen und Social Bots erlangen Konzerne, politische Entscheidungsträger und Kriminelle zunehmend Kontrolle über weite Teile der Menschheit. Schlecky Silberstein analysiert den »Daten-Kasino-Kapitalismus«, in dem unsere Daten als Handelsware gezielt eingesetzt werden, um unser Verhalten vorherzusagen und zu beeinflussen. Nicht nur Donald Trump wusste ihn auf seinem Weg zur Macht zu nutzen, auch unsere eigene Gesellschaft droht von programmierbaren Propaganda-Maschinen gelenkt zu werden. Können wir einen verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit dem Internet lernen oder hilft nur noch die sofortige Abschaltung?

Schlecky Silberstein, geboren 1981, ist einer der wichtigsten Blogger Deutschlands. Sein gleichnamiger Blog hat über 600.000 regelmäßige Leser, rund 130.000 folgen ihm auf Facebook. Die von ihm produzierte Comedy Show »Bohemian Browser Ballett« ist fester Bestandteil von »funk«, dem jungen Online-Medienangebot von ARD und ZDF. Schlecky Silberstein lebt in Berlin.

Glam Jail: Franco-Brazilian tale by Pol Kurucz

Glam Jail is a Franco-Brazilian tale by photographer Pol Kurucz about 11 eccentric inmates transforming a prison visitor’s booth into a colorful fashion haven.

Through visual allegories and pop aesthetics the photographer challenges social and racial norms symbolized by the carceral universe. The shootings took place in the Offen Studio in Sao Paulo in August 2017. The series features local models, celebrities and dresses exclusively from local fashion brands.

Pol Kurucz was born with two different names to a French mother in a Hungarian hospital. His childhood hyperactivity was treated with theater, and theater was later treated with finance. By 27 he was a CEO by day and a stage director by night.

He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream moneymaking restaurant loss making in its absurdity.

Pol was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense. Today he works on eccentric fashion and fine art projects from his Sao Paulo studio.

His photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including: Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, The Guardian (Arts), Adobe Create, Hunger TV, Sleek and Nylon.
