    We six interstellar travelers you may follow the whole day through
    With stones of power we'll stretch your vision
    Mountains of sound may smile upon you 
    And ticklish herbs will laugh out loud 

    Elegant monsters will shake loose your fears
    A trituration will empty the space,
    Kneading through your thoughts 
    Together we dine with grace

    Perhaps none of these spells will be cast 
    But draw forth your curiosity; come one, come all
    Together we'll build a fabric — over time and beneath the palm

    This event ist part of the Vienna Artweek Studio Visits

    - The NGO director fighting for transparency
    - The body practitioner giving her touch 
    - The nighttime voices of Berlin clubs

  31. Keine Angst!

    Multidisciplinary project of the scholars of Robert Bosch Foundation´s Programme for Cultural Managers from Central and Eastern Europe, taking place from 23th till 31st of July 2010 in Tapetenwerk Halle C in Leipzig.

    23.-31. Juli 2010
    Tapetenwerk, Lützner Str. 91, Leipzig

    The Videoexhibition opening:
    23. Juli 2010, 19:00 Uhr

    On July 23rd, 2010 at 7 p.m. the project Keine Angst! with the discussion and music performance will be open. The project explores the relationship between the individual and the institution of authority as well as origin and the maintenance of the societal norms (politeness, political correctness, universal axiology). Keine Angst! is joint project by young culture managers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Latvia and Lithuania.

    ''In the past as well as in today´s society the existence of fear is ever-present. It is often being politicized and used for defining 'normality', 'minority', 'majority'. For our project we have chosen the theme that might have other forms in Germany or in Lithuania, but is common to all societies. The complexity of preconceptions and established structures that one faces in the society is like a labyrinth where one could get lost or one could dare (Keine Angst!) to search for the exit.

    The video exhibition Keine Angst! shows the works of artists from Lithuania, Latvia, Germany and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Artworks are placed in a room installation of labyrinth, created by Dresden architect Wolfgang Kurtz with the assistance of Igor Sovilj. The labyrinth is meant as a metaphor of the dead end, where the fears prevent us from the finding the exit.

    On the opening night - July 23th at 7 30 p.m, the open discussion with the artists and invited guests and the concert of Margita Zalite aka Margo (LV), Tytia Mina Teremina (LT) und DJ take place.

    Artists, taking part in the exhibition: 
    Katrina Neiburga (LV), Kate Krolle (LV), Linards Kulless (LV), Ivars Gravlejs (LV), Gorana Bosnic, Sandra Dukic (BiH), Igor Bosnjak (BiH), Laura Garbstiene (LT), Sophie Uchman (DE), Maria Susanne Schwerdtner (DE)

    The Project Keine Angst! is a collaboration of four Robert Bosch scholars in the Program for Cultural Managers from Central and East Europe for 2009/2010, a program realized by MitOst ass. from Berlin:

    Ruta Virbickaite, Lithuania
    Zane Zajanckauska, Latvia and
    Martina Zuzanakova, Checz Republic 

    Project is supported by:

    Robert Bosch Foundation
    Cultural Foundation of the Free State Saxony
    IFA- Institut for Foreign Relations and
    Latvian Cultural Foundation

  32. BANGA

    BANGA is a shamanic platform for the creation of energetic potions using the elements of sound, silver, amber and thought wave patterns to positively influence our community.

    The inception of the BANGA project will take place on Friday 17th of July, 2010 at interactive art playground Mind The Box, at Mind Pirates, Falckensteinstr. 48. Berlin at 21:00.

    http://fillmybox.tumblr.com 

     

    BANGA is made from 60% water and 40% spirit.  Working with the water element within this pure drink we aim to enrich and charge BANGA with positive energetic properties.

    It is already known that water has properties that enable it to take on special subtle qualities found only within the sub atomic patterns.  These patterns interact with water patterns found in the human organism, thus changing the vibrations of intracellular energy.

     

    Energise your BANGA with thoughts, words and emotions!

    Game “CURE the BANGA”:

    You can “charge” or “cure” the BANGA with your thoughts. Just hold the container and think of something – and put it back. Write the ideas that you thought on a small piece of paper.  This will then be used to charge BANGA for the next people playing.

     

    Energising BANGA with silver.

    Trace amounts of silver in water have great biological and physiological influence with the living body. Silver water is a preventative measure and remedy for many diseases.

    BANGA is cured with an old silver spoon, which came from my grandmother’s house in Vilnius.

     

    Energising BANGA with amber.

    In the Baltic States, Amber has been used for centuries. It is associated with sunlight and warmth and reputed to boost the immune system.

    Using the energies of the deep past, we can influence our present creative processes to create something new.

     

    Energising BANGA with sound

    Water has the ability to take on patterns influenced by the presence of sound.

    Harmonic patterns in music transmit harmonic energy through water into the human organism.

     

    Banga is a project conceived by two people from the Baltic States: Linards Kulless and Juste Kostikovaite.

    SURVIVAL KIT

    http://www.lcca.lv/projects/survival_eng/

    An arts event in the Riga city where local and international artists are invited to reflect on the diverse survival strategies.

    12.09.09 - 19.09.09. Riga. Latvia

    IF MORE CHILDREN ARE BORN BOYS THAN GIRLS, THAN IT MEANS WAR.

    It's very clear that the basis of today’s troubles, burdens and tribulations are caused by humans, and probably men are more to blame. How to deal with all this so called ''man's world'' disaster?  Finally, if our own strength isn't enough anymore, maybe it's time to turn to Latvian ancient wisdom and knowledge of charms, power-signs and protectors.

     

    Vienozīmīgi skaidrs ka visu dižķibeļu, ķīviņu, neražu un likstu pamatā ir paši cilvēki, un iespējams ka vīriešu vaina ir mazliet lielāka. Kā tikt galā ar visu šo „vīriešu pasaules“ postu, ja pašiem vairs nepietiek spēka. Tad talkā mums var nākt latviešu viedās zināšanas par amuletiem, spēka zīmēm un aizstāvjiem.
