We’ll be honest. The initial plan was to write a critical gaze over art docs. Not the schlocky biopics, or dewy-eyed reminisces of certain “scenes”, eras or places, but more straightforward (if beautiful) documentaries.

<![CDATA[list: music video design]]>

Every time I teach at an artschool in Europe I notice that the students are not actively following what is happening in pop music video cultures - there seems to be some kind of taboo. So I had my Merzakademie students make a playlist of recent (post digital) videos generated on edge of pop and internet cultures. I think it is a really good start.

<![CDATA['Ways of Something' curated by Lorna Mills]]>

I am privileged to be involved in Ways of Something: an incredible collaboration between artist Lorna Mills and (currently) 85 artists. Episode 3 will have its World Premiere at The Photographer’s Gallery, London, on February 12th 2015. 85 web-based artists remake John Berger’s historic documentary ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972) one minute at a time. Originally commissioned by The One Minutes, at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and compiled by Lorna Mills, the episodes present a sequence of 3D renderings, filmic remixes, videos and webcam performances which subvert the tropes of art history in an entertaining and overwhelming way. Followed by a Q&A between Julia van Mourik, director of The One Minutes and Lorna Mills via Skype.

Slavoj Žižek discusses the famous platitude (incorrectly) attributed to Dostoyevsky's character in "The Brothers Karamazov" that "If god does not exist, everything is permitted." Žižek rejects this and suggests, in fact, the opposite — that if there were a god, everything would be permissible.
