SOUNDS LIKE ART Tony Ozuna | sound art | 01.03.2005
SOUNDS LIKE ART
Kim Gordon, of Sonic Youth, expresses a common feeling while interviewing Rodney Graham, a Canadian multimedia artist, for Bomb Magazine. She says, “The thing about music that I find so interesting, not to be pompous about it, is that it’s like architecture. You carry it with you; it changes your mood. It transforms whatever environment you’re in, and it transforms your inner environment, your…
Art & Garbage or Recycled Esthetics in Post-war Central Europe (1917-2005) Tony Ozuna | waste | 01.03.2005
ART & GARBAGE OR RECYCLED ESTHETICS IN POST-WAR CENTRAL EUROPE (1917-2005)
At the end of the disastrously bloody massacre known as World War I, the disillusioned ex-solider Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) became an artist, first joining the Dadaists but ultimately he staked a claim in art that was not solely a part of that group. The German Dadaists were attracted to and concentrated in Berlin, but Schwitters was a good distance from there, firmly rooted in his “provincial”…
West Goes East: Barbara Benish completes the circle Tony Ozuna | interview | 01.01.2005
WEST GOES EAST: BARBARA BENISH COMPLETES THE CIRCLE
In Democracy in America, Tocqueville describes a remarkable scene that he comes across in the wilderness of Alabama in 1831. The European intellectual traveler stumbles across an Indian woman followed by a “Negress” who is holding the hand of a “little white girl of five or six years.” The Indian is described as a noble, “her hair adorned with glass beads,” and the negress is described as a slave…
The Blurred Image Tony Ozuna | study | 01.04.2004
THE BLURRED IMAGE
My grandfather was already in his 50s when he first started to take pictures. He only photographed crowds—anonymous faces at high school football games, boxing or masked Mexican wrestling matches at the Olympic Auditorium in downtown L.A. I was his little companion at these events, yet I never even noticed that he was snapping away at faces in the audience, while I was watching Mil Mascaras (the…
It’s a War Out There Tony Ozuna | blasphemy | 01.03.2004
IT’S A WAR OUT THERE
As usual, American Independence Day (4th of July), 2004, in Berlin was abound in protests against the U.S.A., but the “Girl-Groups Against Bush” concert at the Mudd Club in East Berlin was the most appealing to me. Bringing together German-Berliners like Electrocute and Berlin-based New Yorkers like Isabella Deluxe 3000—with ten groups overall--the line-up was sweet; though, the real attraction…
All Tomorrow’s Art—A Party Tony Ozuna | 01.02.2004
ALL TOMORROW’S ART—A PARTY
All Tomorrow’s Parties is a novel by cyberpunk writer, William Gibson. It is one of his best. It is also one of the most haunting songs ever recorded by Nico and the Velvet Underground, back in the day. And All Tomorrow’s Parties is finally a remarkable noise and fringe rock music festival that is held twice a year—one in England and one in southern California. The festival in England is held at…
GOTT THE ARTIST Tony Ozuna | focus | 01.03.2003
GOTT THE ARTIST
"A medley of hits plays in a swank Prague restaurant. It’s a recent all-covers affair, belted out by Tom Jones with the floor-stompers, “Theme to Evita,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” from the Wizard of Oz soundtrack, Rod Stewart’s “If You Think I’m Sexy,” etc. I’m sure the tourists love this stuff in Vegas; it could even be his actual playlist for casino tours, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s…
ART OF RESISTENCE 2003 Tony Ozuna | review | 01.03.2003
ART OF RESISTENCE 2003
"The art of rebellion comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. It’s not necessarily a new form of social protest, but the format is new. Beyond graffiti, it’s done as elaborate murals, cartoonish characters, deformed corporate-type logos, massive poster campaigns, ubiquitous stencils, stickers, and even strategically placed objects on the street. It’s not done on canvas, or framed, and most…
Art of graffiti — Prague style (interview with JanKaláb) Tony Ozuna | graffity | 01.04.2002
ART OF GRAFFITI — PRAGUE STYLE (INTERVIEW WITH JANKALÁB)
Artist Claes Oldenburg said it nicely: “You’re standing there in the station, everything is gray and gloomy, and all of a sudden one of those graffiti trains slides in and brightens up the place like a big bouquet from Latin America.” Oldenburg was talking about New York City, of course. In our case, the city is Prague: in a charmed, forgotten corner of Prague’s New Town, behind Charles Square,…

THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF VICE
"Sitting inside Bethlehem Chapel, on Bethlehem Square in Prague’s Old Town a few weeks ago, listening to the church organ, it was impossible not to think of prostitutes. Just before visiting the church, I had read that in the mid–1400s, a Czech reformer named Jan Milíč had converted prostitutes who were working in that area, and with the reformed local prostitutes, Milíč started a religious…
