Angus McCullough, INSECURITY in Vermont
Angus is a multidisciplinary artist from NYC, currently working in Vermont.
 INSECURITY is a wearable, ‘fully interactive’ project that nibbles at the edge of a pervasive social structure.
With this and other work, Angus hopes to help people see “banal” environments as cultural inscriptions. Enjoy a laugh along the way.

Creating Your Own Destiny: Hassan Hajjaj in Marrakech

Hassan Hajjaj has fond childhood memories of enjoying the simple things in life, like playing outside in his hometown of Larache, walking barefoot and visiting the mountains.

Upon relocating to London his entire world changed and eventually led him on a path within the worlds of music, art and film.

We meet him in Marrakech during the Marrakech Biennale to discuss his latest projects and international exhibitions while learning some local Morroccan dialect along the way, on Freunde von Freunden.

Thank you Philipp Löffler and Salwa Benaissa.

Die Gestalten Des Letzten Ufers by Michel Houllebecq
This week Michel Houllebecq's - Author of Atomised - 5th collection of poems has finally been released in Germany and is therefore the pick of the week.
'Configuration du dernier rivage' - Die Gestalt des letzten Ufers - is a collection of his poetry in a dark blue book. In the usual manner of his nihilistic yet congenial approach, he looks at what we call live from the other side and like his fiction, his poetry is immediately recognizable for its heavy servings of existential pessimism, that we have missed so much in recent years. Get it here.
