Anonym - In the Future No One Will Be Famous



Under the programmatic title Anonymous: In the Future No One Will Be Famous, the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt presents an exhibition with works by 11 international artists who - like the curator - will remain unnamed. In their Notes toward a Manifesto, the initiators of the exhibition proclaim: “Anonymous artists wish to wriggle the status quo into a status incognitus. Their aim is to remove the increasing barbarization of thought via short circuits and fast lanes created by the marketing of artists as brands whose works have become masterpieces in ignorance of philosophy."

Assemble For Rights NYC


Assemble For Rights is a growing alliance of organizations and ordinary New Yorkers united to protect freedom of speech and assembly in NYC.

In light of recent efforts by the NYPD to create new rules regulating public gatherings, we have come together to ask the New York City Council to take charge in this matter. NYC needs new public gatheringrules. The city’s current rules are not effective in protecting civil liberties nor do they give the NYPD clear guidelines for policing public events. However, we believe only the New York City Council, as the representatives of the people, have the authority to make laws that affect our fundamental freedoms. We call on City Council to pass legislation that both safeguards the full expression of our constitutional rights and ensures the public safety. Assemble For Rights has put forward legislation that will accomplish these goals, and we urge the City Council to adopt it.

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council - Recipe for Downtown

What’s your recipe to change downtown? Lower Manhattan Cultural Council invited the public to spice up the pot by suggesting their “recipe” for the area south of 14th Street, be it anything from a design for a new public piazza to the instructions for making a new kind of pizza.

What we'll produce is a recipe book for downtown to be published using “just-in-time” printing by Dexter Sinister.

The book will be released at the Cities, Art and Recovery Book Launch. For more information including how to get a copy of this book, stay tuned to this page.
