Chaussee 36: “The group exhibition ‘Behind Desire’ to introduce the different facets of eroticism and explore the mechanisms of desire in art photography. Going beyond the mere presentation of erotic images, to investigate the complex perception of erotic sensations, stimulated by photographs and literary extracts. In a society increasingly dominated by sex and pornography, awareness to the significance of eroticism needs to be raised. A participatory journey through the exhibition will enable an intimate discovery. At the same time, a critical examination of the notion of eroticism, which is shaped by patriarchy, must be emphasized.”

Events • Meet the ‘OUTLAWS’ – a film directed by Dillon BUIRSKI c/o WE ARE CREATIVE

30.09.2020 • “In a world that is constantly in flux and a society that constructs power structures as a way to control life’s natural chaos, the most powerful magical spell is unashamed, unabashed authenticity to self.” – Kyle Bxshxff

The film ‘OUTLAWS’ was born from a conviction that this authenticity that Kyle Bxshxff speaks of, needs to be shared with the world, and that ‘the new, the next and the now’ needs to be confrontationally lived through expression. As part of this exploration of authenticity, the WE ARE CREATIVE production team from Cape Town, as well as their very own creatives jumped at the idea of bringing this one to life. The collaboration between these teams, as well as AFRICA IS NOW magazine and Cape Town’s LGBTQIA+ community resulted in a colorful celebration of the creativity they all have to offer as a whole. “We could not have been prouder of the opportunity to help tell these stories, and it has been an honor to work alongside every person who invested so much to make sure these stories are heard and seen.” says Dillon BUIRSKI c/o WE ARE CREATIVE.

The film roars with a...

Events • Loch Stock and Salmon – an adventure to the wild west coast of Scotland ... A new short film/campaign has just been launched by THE ECOHUSTLER

30.09.2020 • Loch Stock and Salmon – an adventure to the wild west coast of Scotland. A new short film/campaign has just been launched by The Ecohustler to raise awareness of the dangers of farmed salmon fishing in Scotland. A great deal of research shows that declines are directly attributable to the rise of the salmon farming industry that is rapidly expanding due to consumer demand for this aspirational ‘staple’.

For aeons, salmon have migrated thousands of miles before returning to their Scottish rivers to spawn. But increasingly, on the last legs of their epic pilgrimages back to their ancestral breeding grounds, the wild fish have to swim past cages imprisoning mass-produced salmon. Held at unnaturally high density, these “tortured animals” are plagued by parasitic sea lice which eat the farmed fish alive. As the wild fish swim by, they too are infected, and go on to suffer the same grisly fate.

The film was produced by Ecohustler.com – an independent online magazine that looks to bring people unexpected, entertaining, ecological content with a focus on connecting with nature and each...
