Interview with James Powderly (GRL, FAT Lab)

During the Olympic Games in 2008 James Powderly traveled to Beijing in order to support the group “Students for a free Tibet”. The Idea was to go there and do a L.A.S.E.R. Tag performance. Before he was able to do so he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days of prison. When the games were over he was set free and sent home, where he decided to publish the story as a comic book together with Jihoi Lee. In the interview he tells us about the time in prison and the comic book that was exhibited at the Blackriver Festival in Vienna.

This is the L.A.S.E.R. Tag Video by GRL, for everybody who is not familiar with the project:


Japan Media Arts Festival in Vienna MQ

The Japan Media Arts Festival chooses every year another country to show their currently awarded and nominated pieces in an exhibition abroad.
This years the exhibition takes place in Vienna. It shows very well that the Japanese art definition differs from the European approach quite a lot, the border between art and design is floating as you can see by the selection of pieces in the exhibition.

Atsushi Wakimoto, the curator of the Japan Media Arts Festival walks us trough the viennese exhibition of the Festival which is running until 20th of September.
