A little one-nite only photo exhibition will take place. Organized by Terez Kalábová, Břeťa Vomočil, Lukáš Schejbal, Peťa Polášková, Martin Půček, Pavel Vech, Nelleke Kruijmer (NL), Honza Bleha, Míra Zítko, Eunika Muntágová (SK) and myself (DE) (all CZ if not mentioned otherwise) will be showing between one to six photographies each. Terez writes:
Some pictures are home made in bathroom-style dark room (Martin Půček and Lukáš Schejbal), some people are using old cameras: me, Lukáš and Martin have Flexaret/Yashica, Eunika and Honza are using Lomo, Břéťa is combining digital and old style camera, Peťa, Pavel, Míra and Nelleke are having some digital stuff [Robin too]. Míra is also used to paint as well as I do. Nelleke has [an] incredibly terrible camera but her photos are amazing.
Originally, the exhibition was supposed to take place in an old factory, but the developer was to fast and it is guarded now. I am excited to be showing one picture there. I wish I could come to Brno myself and see the installation on clotheslines. Fortunately, I think, enough photographers will be there to document;-)

Architecture aficionados will find the Messeplatz of this weeks Art Basel to be a special treat. Walking from Downtown Basel towards Messe they will see a new, somewhat organic-looking shape crossing what used to be the open Messeplatz underneath the Messeturm:
It is the new Messe add-on by Basels most prestigious architecture firm Herzog & deMeuron. It is still under construction, but already looking amazing.
Crossing underneath it onto the still open part of Messeplatz, they will see another Herzog & deMeuron construction, Schaulagers temporary ‘Satellite’, which shows off some pieces of Schaulagers amazing collection of contemporary art and videos about the concept and history of Schaulager, which are really interesting.
I have blogged a picture of this a couple days ago, but here is another one from above, taken from the 30th floor of Messeturm:
I went back to Volta today and Ana Cristea told me to go look for a certain booth. Said booth belonged to H.Art gallery from Rumania. The gallerists and their art was gone. All that was left was the following writing on the wall:
Found in one of the mens’ bathrooms of Warteck P.P., where LISTE 17 – The Young Art Fair takes place this week.
Here is a snapshot I took at Warteck P.P. where Liste – the Young Art Fair will be opening this afternoon:
found this sign about 300 feet from the five people that were “Occupy NoHo” in Northampton, MA
I wonder whether it is intentional or not. When I walked by it again 2 hours later, “occupy yourself” was gone…
The people occupying NoHo chose their location, Polaksi Park, well: It is right on Main St. and the park (as opposed to Zucotty Park in NYC) has its own free Wifi for visitors.
Oh I just love these license plates:
