The Outhouse flyers

The Outhouse flyers:


The Outhouse was a venue in the 80’s and 90’s in the middle of a corn field in Lawrence, Kansas. The website has TONS of flyers and a trailer for the documentary they’re making on it.

thanks for the link, tons of great flyers up there!

"Thirty years before the great Mayan cities were abandoned, at the height of the Muslim and Chinese…"

“Thirty years before the great Mayan cities were abandoned, at the height of the Muslim and Chinese empires, when Europe was in the midst of the Early Middle Ages (and 600 years before Columbus stumbled into the Americas), a community of unknown fishermen honored their dead and successfully sent a warning to future generations. Some 50 generations later, on March 11, 2011, the Murohama tsunami warning tower — which was supposed to sound an alarm — was silent, toppled by the temblor. Still, without the benefit of an official warning system supported by modern science, the locals relied on the lesson that had been transmitted generation to generation for 1,000 years. “We all know the story about the two tsunami waves that collided at the shrine,” I was told.”

this is amazing.

fuckyeahmarxismleninism: Egyptian protesters hold up an obelisk…


Egyptian protesters hold up an obelisk with the names of those killed during last year’s uprising, at a huge rally in Tahrir Square on January 25, 2012, marking the first anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

In 1991 I got a free trip to NY to be on a CMJ panel (thank you Jonathan Poneman) but the real reason I came was to see Chris Burden’s piece “The Other Vietnam War Memorial.” It’s a grouping of giant copper panels around a center pole, each plate pierced through with a series of names running after one another, stylistically recalling Maya Linn’s, well, other Vietnam War Memorial (technically “The Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial,” which makes no sense because the dead are not veterans but whatever).

Burden’s piece was described in the LAT story as “a desktop Rolodex designed by the Pentagon,” and that is cruelly accurate, even down to the militarist impulse’s disregard for humanity. We so deeply destroyed Vietnam that Burden wasn’t able to compile the actual names of the estimated 3 million citizens who were killed. Instead he listed those he could and used an algorithm based on the most common Vietnamese names to generate the rest.

a copper sheet with vietnamese writing across it. the writing is a series of names.

(image above from here)

Like all of his work, it has remained at the forefront of my wayward mind, connected to so many things more than just “art” in its formal, narrow sense. Art is activism. It can speak for the dead.
