DBC - Driven by creatives recommends : crowdfunding for director Robin POLAK's ‘Oskarreif’ has started. Take part !

‘Oskarreif is a satirical short film which mocks clichéd drama and cheesy blockbusters that occupy our TV programme.

Experiments in electric ink: GoSee London at Fashion Space Gallery Relaunch

Fashion Space Gallery presents Relaunch, a series of consecutive tailor-made live events, marking a new approach to the space in central London.

Recently appointed new Director of the Fashion Space Gallery, Ligaya Salazar, curator of renowned shows such as Yohji Yamamoto and Fashion V Sport at the Victoria and Albert Museum, worked closely on the project with assistant curators Polona Dolzan and Joana Filipe.

The Relaunch programme encompasses exciting participatory events that are free to sign up to and centre on themes related to fashion.

GoSee London attended one of the first in the series, Bare Conductive, a workshop laboratory inspired by the frequent intersections of fashion with technology. Never one to shy away from getting our hands dirty in the name of fashion, we tested the design possibilities of conductive ink.

The workshop was hosted by Studio PSK, creative associates of Bare Conductive, a London based design and technology studio. Their electric paint was born from a collaborative project started at the Royal College of Art and science specialists Imperial College London. In 2009 Bare Conductive set up their own business and now thanks to their starter kits available from the online store, anyone can turn their home into a design and technology lab, ...

GoSee loves • Bravo Cabaret de Paris ! The premiere of the unique Rambazamba theatre in film clips and snapshots on GoSee

ROLF SCHEIDER CASTING invited us to Rambazamba Theatre and GoSee was happy to take him up on it. And we experienced a night with Casting Director Rolf Scheider that we won’t be forgetting any time soon. The theatre seats up to 100 guests, so obviously other than Rolf’s guests, it was mainly friends and family that were all bundles of nerves on the opening night. After all Rambazamba isn’t just any old theatre. Enter a collective of people who are considered ‘mentally disabled’ according to the norms that still reign free in our society and yet show us a true magical spectacle.

At the beginning we were feeling a little apprehensive, didn’t know what to expect, however just 20 minutes into the show we had been transported to another world. The stage became the norm, a much more colourful, friendly and dynamic space than the one we usually cohabitate. Unstandardized, unregulated, each actor a little important wonderful world in themselves. Singing suddenly became personal expression rather than an octave achievement showcase, knife throwers didn’t need any knives and a new dimension of sexy danced before our very eyes. Bravo Rambazamba !

“You can only have both hands free if you let go” – Deutsche Werbefilmpreis 2014 in Berlin. GoSee reports on the awards ceremony and actress Denise Zich says “Hello GoSee!”

This weekend, after a two-year break, the Deutsche Werbefilmpreis (German advertising film award) was presented at Kino International in Berlin. Around 500 visitors were looking forward to the new concept – less categories, no presenter, no entry fees and entries accepted from everyone. After an aperitif or two in the company of contemporary celebrities such as director and producer Carlo Rola and actresses such as Dennenesch Zoudé, Ralph Herforth, Tobias Schenke and last but not least the absolutely enchanting and hardworking Denise Zich – who says "Hello GoSee !" live from the event, the industry insiders made their way to the screening room. We were treated to an eloquent introduction by Tony Petersen, Chairman of the event. Open, self-critical and yet self confident.

The award was opened with a making-of video of the jury meeting – which gave us some deep insights. Although quite a few people were rather surprised by the result. But all in good time. As promised, all categories were quickly ticked off the list, though we did notice that the surprises we had hoped for were excluded from the categories. We suggest rather than using designed artwork trailers (which we really liked btw) it might be nicer to produce a colourful medley of the entries… who dares wins.

The ceremony started with ...

Helmhaus Zürich honours Julian Assange with Copy-Art. The reconstruction of his study at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London now open for everyone and Christian Waldvogel presents 'unknown'

Helmhaus Zurich presents contemporary art, mainly by Swiss artists or creatives based in Switzerland. However, there are exceptions. For example, Zurich visitors can have a free look at the detailed reconstruction of Julian Assange’s study room at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is at the centre of the !Mediengruppe Bitnik exhibition..

They visited Julian Assange several times in London and reconstructed his living quarters from memory since photography is banned from the embassy. It became the control centre of Wikileaks and a world famous symbol for the influence that total surveillance has on our society. !Mediengruppe Bitnik sent a homemade ‘post drone’ to Julian Assange in return: a package, complete with camera, which recorded the journey in the post and made a live transmission. This traditional medium proved to be a truly reliable source of communication in this age of omnipresent surveillance.

Alongside this Helmhaus also presents works by Christian Waldvogel, famed as an artist who does not shy away from science. He is particularly interested in our perception of the universe and the possibility of life on other planets. In 2011 he was appointed Co-Chair of the «Topical Team Arts & Science» of European Space Agency ESA. For the exhibition Christian Waldvogel ...

paper art • Into the Valley of the Paper Dolls - GoSee London at: Non-Sterile – an exhibition of paper artist Linda Toigo’s latest works

In her latest series of works, Linda Toigo presents ‘Non-Sterile’, a site-specific installation at St John on Bethnal Green.

Conventionally a place of ritual and contemplation, Toigo situates her works in the belfry of a church, ultimately disrupting the formality of the environment and revealing a sacrificial offering of traditional beauty.

Armed with a non-sterile scalpel blade, the paper artist carves through the sterile glossy imagery of perfection represented in magazines to reveal the fast-paced ephemeral nature of beauty. Meticulously excavating crowded layers, she singles out individual images suspended in time to reveal a complex interplay of light and darkness.

The multitude of a magazine’s smiling lips, bright eyes and translucent limbs is exposed in ‘Vanity Fear’, an unsettling series of portraits that hang in the solemn space. Alongside this, ‘Paper Dolls’ deploys an army of unattainable sleek feminine flawlessness that, rising from carved pages of Vogue’s, casts dark shadows on the surroundings.

Combined, the works cut away at the idealisation of beauty and reveal a tension between the overexposure of perfection with the ritualistic dissection of the glossy image.

After graduating in Architecture, ...
