“Since so many brave survivors and I have come forward, titans of every industry have toppled. We, survivors, have gained our power. We, survivors, are using our voices in record numbers. We cannot let up, and as hard as it is, we must continue to get even louder, to push even harder. We all count, and we all matter. Here’s to freedom, yours and mine. Now go breathe fire.”
― Rose McGowan, Brave
“EVENTUALLY, I WON MY POINT, WHICH WAS: – “I AM AN ARTIST, AND THAT TAPE IS ONE OF MY ARTWORKS, AND IT BELONGS TO ME.” YES, THEY CAN HAVE A COPY. I HAD A POINT OF VIEW AND A REASON TO FIGHT. ON THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW, I SAID: “LITTLE BROTHER WATCHING BIG BROTHER.” THAT WAS A BIG STATEMENT, AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SAW THAT. IT MEANT ANY INDIVIDUAL WITH A CAMERA (WHICH CAN BE A POWER WEAPON USED TO PROTECT ONE’S DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS) COULD HOLD THE AUTHORITIES AND THE POLICE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS ON THE STREET! THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A WHOLE NEW DIGITAL AGE. “

Keep your halos tight
I’m your god or your guardian
Keep your halo tight
One hand on the trigger, the other hand in mine
Because now, cupid carries a gun
Now, now, cupid, cupid carries a gun.
“We are oscillating above the harsh vs soft vision of reality closely linked to the artist’s perception of the body in its physical, cultural, and psychic dimensions. The group of portraits shown at the “No It Is Not Not Always” exhibition in vibrant East London intends to question how we understand and relate to inherent aspects of human experiences, such as uncertainty and eccentricity, but also to culture and the symbolics that make it identifiable. “-Arthur Sopin and Andreas Rod.
” TOGETHER WITH KUNSTHALLE OSLO AND MUNCH MUSEET IN MOTION, WE HAVE AN EXHIBITION PROGRAMME ATTRACTING A HIGHLY VARIED AND BROAD ART CROWD TO THIS AREA. AND A BIT FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD, THE MUNCH MUSEUM AND MAIN LIBRARY, TOGETHER WITH THE OPERA HOUSE, ALL WILL FORM A RARE AND POWERFUL CENTRE FOR THE ARTS. I BELIEVE OTHER GALLERIES WILL FOLLOW SOON TOO.”
“A way of life can be shared among individuals of different ages, statuses, and social activities, and it can yield intense relations not resembling those that are institutionalized. It seems that a way of life can yield a culture and ethics. To be “gay,” I think, is not to identify with the psychological traits and the visible masks of the homosexual but to try and define and develop a way of life.”
― Michel Foucault, Ethics: Subjectivity and Truth

” My best talent is turning everything into a light game. I approach everything I do with a sense of playfulness. I play games, even in projects that demand a lot of energy and effort. I decided to try to sustain our playful quality when we were kids – to avoid limiting myself and use my imagination freely. We must never forget how to play: So many great things can come out of it!”
” I feel like the running and me creating music is part of the same thing. I can feel my body when I run, and I also feel the music, whenever I do both, I feel like my mind is free and not disturbed by a lot of thoughts. It makes me feel complete.”
“THE FIRST RULE OF PAINTING IS TO TAKE EVERYONE ELSE OUT OF THE EQUATION. I AM THE VIEWER, SO IDON’T UNDERESTIMATE MY VIEWERS. THEY SEE EVERYTHING, AND I JUST HAVE TO ASSUME THEY ARE ME. I CAN’T PAINT FOR ANYONE ELSE. IT’S ALL ABOUT HAVING THE COURAGE TO SAY THIS IS FINISHED, AND THEY HAVE TO KNOW I AM THE BOSS IN PAINTING. It’s LIKE BEING A SOLDIER BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE HARD AS FUCK TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THESE THINGS AND LET THEM GO.”
– heyBEA_ features a married genderfluid couple, Jorja and Jax James, kissing set to an interview with right-wing commentator Faith Goldy. In this film, we ask the question, how free are we when we’re not free to think? ‘no-platforming’ and refusing to allow people to air their views, thoughts, and instincts can lead to damage to an individual’s mental health and societal devastation.
” I hopped on a train with some Polaroids I’d taken with a disposable camera. I got fortunate, got signed right away, and started working from the get-go. I planned to only do it for the summer, but then I fell in love with it, and I have never looked back.”
THIS EPISODE IS ABOUT A GRAFFITI WRITER, RISK, NEW IMAGE ART GALLERY OWNER MARSEE GOLDBERG, DIRECTOR MARK SIMPSON, AND PERFORMANCE ARTIST ARIEL BRICKMAN TALKING ABOUT LISTER’S INCREDIBLE STYLE AND DEDICATION TO HIS TRUE LOVE AND ARTISTIC EXPRESSION.
“ This exhibition represents the collective image of a protagonist who is an indeterminate and unclear character. However, it would be strange to demand clarity from people at a time like ours, and there is one certain thing: our hero is a strange individual and an eccentric figure. Some may deem that strangeness and eccentricity are more likely to harm than deserve attention in a world of people desperately striving to identify particularities whilst searching for some common sense in the general muddle. A new question arises: eccentricity is detached and isolated, isn’t it? If you disagree with this and think, ‘No, it is not’ or ‘Not always ‘, here begins our inspirational moment. Not only is the eccentric figure ‘Not always’ or ‘ No it is not’ related to particularity and isolation, but on the contrary, it so happens that the eccentric one, perhaps, carries a core of the whole existence at some points, but the rest of the people, by some other kind of strangeness, at times are breaking away from it.” -Arthur Sopin and Andreas Rod
Metamodernism also suggests taking the Goal, which lies behind systems and religions, as a constant, but the constant as a method of achieving which a person must find independently. This is the principle of individuality, sensitive aristocracy, and creative morality as an individual revelation. The way of attaining the Goal is also proposed (the Goal is to own sacred growth, achievement, and comprehension of the pure actuality) or, at least, the road to it – going beyond the notions of “good and evil,” going out of the judgment, that the Dutch philosophers “Notes on metamodernism” were dubbed oscillation-oscillation. The sensitive aristocracy is about the sacred beginning behind the systems and religions, proclaiming a new era from the Post to the Meta.” – Arthur Sopin.

” I think of the future of an island. Crystal clear waters, blue sky, and the sunshine, the future is paradise! No food, no drinking water, no friends, the future is hell! Utopia vs. dystopia, cyclic vs. disruptive…The future will be all of these, and the important question is not about predictions but rather about why you do the things you do. Will your actions take us to paradise or to hell? What is the point of being pessimistic? If everyone joins the Preppers – people who invest in guns and store food to prepare for Armageddon – then that’s what the future will be like. I think connectivity will ultimately lead to the end of hierarchy and that’s the revolution.”
