En Elsgar in Berlin, Kari Bremnes, hin auch reissend.

Ihre Alben? Ungehörte Klangqualität, Svarta Bjørn über die Figur der Anna Rebecka Hofstad, die sich Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts als Schlafbaracken-Köchin für die Gleisarbeiter beim Bau der schwedisch-norwegischen Erzbahn verdingte und eine der wenigen Frauen in einer fast vollständig geschlossenen Männerwelt war. karibremnes.no

En Elsgar in Berlin. Sie singt`s auch in Englisch, der Text dazu, mal sehen was der automatische Übersetzer draus macht:

A LOVER IN BERLIN
Lyrics and music: Kari Bremnes

Once l had a lover in Berlin,
said a frail old woman from a table next to mine.
His voice was like an ancient violin
and he spoke to me – that voice … that voice!….

The Shock of the New….in 2 varieties

Kunst Crash Kurs. Eine  wunderbare TV Dokumentation von 1980 von Robert Hughes + BBC + Time-Life-Film.  8 teilig und sie sind wunderbar anzusehen, eine Art Crash Kurs in Kunst. The keyword of the century: Modernity…..gemeint kann da nur sein, das 20. Jahrhundert.

Juni 2013: Bei Youtube leider nun für Deutschland gesperrt, anyway von Robert Hughes gibts Video Lessons about Art fast wie Sand am Meer.

 

A a different kind of shock: Robert Hughes, Art Critic NYT, about the Basquiat Retrospektive, Whitney 1992„…a parody of a funeral rite performed over a slender talent encased in a sarcophagus grossly to large for it…The life was so sad and truncated, and the art that came out of it so limited, that it seems unfair to dwell on either. Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?

Encore? A Disaster

Basquiat`s sensibility, insofar as he can be said to have any, was that of an untrained and unruly adolescent wise only in his instinct for self display as a means of self-advancement… I´ve seen subway-car grafitti that was a lot more interesting than this stuff.“ Hilton Kramer, New York Observer.

 

TV-Party Dokumentation auf youtube

Must see: Fab 5 Freddy, Kid Creole, Walter Steding, SAMO alias Jean-Michel Basquiat, Debbie Harris, Tuxedomoon, Blondie……

Brilliant documentary on the revolutionary public access punk rock cable TV show from New York City – In 1978, two revolutionary trends emerged in New York City, public access cable TV and punk rock. These two phenomena came together spectacularly in Glenn O’Brien’s TV Party. O’Brien recruited his pal Chris Stein, the guitarist of Blondie, as his co-host, fellow Factory kid Walter Steding as leader of The TV Party Orchestra, and underground film director Amos Poe as director and the rest, as you’ll see, was history. Hipsters tuned in to follow the antics of the TV Party gang and such guests as Iggy Pop, David Bowie, P-Funk’s George Clinton, The Clash’s Mick Jones, Kid Creole, Klaus Nomi, as well as performances from acts like Tuxedo Moon, the Brides of Funkenstein, Alex Chilton, and more.
