ZIDANE - A 21th CENTURY PORTRAIT - BEST SCENE.





The film is a documentary focused purely on Zidane during the Spanish Liga Real Madrid vs. Villarreal CF game on April 23, 2005 at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadiumand was filmed in real time using 17 synchronized cameras. During the last minutes of the match, Zidane was sent off as a result of a brawl.[1]
The film bears a similarity to Football As Never Before (aka "Fußball wie noch nie"), a documentary made in 1970 by acclaimed German filmmaker Hellmuth Costard about Manchester United footballer George Best. In the experimental film Costard used eight 16mm film cameras to follow Best, in real time, for the course of an entire game against Coventry City.
The film was featured at the 2006 Edinburgh International Film Festival,[2] where the film's creators Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno were interviewed by Ranald Leask from STV.

GRAFFITI.

Copa: the large gap of Brazilian graffiti.


          ( Paulo Ito )


Each week during the football World Cup, ARTE Creative offers you an incursion in the contemporary culture Brazilian. Second pane in the company of the graffiti scene whose Paulo Ito, famous since the viral dissemination of his work which shows a child weeping before a ball in its base. But while the walls of the country are covered with messages anti-Copa, with sizes as Os Gêmeos, Kobra or Derlon have made choice opposed. The evidence that, in the country of miscegenation, nothing is all black or all white.

Difficult to go to side. Since a month ago, a graffiti is broadcast on the networks in viral rotation, without that person raises the question of its artistic quality or of the relevance of its content: a child is crying, knife and fork in the hands, before a ball in its base. The message has the merit of being simple otherwise simplistic, whereas the expenditure being swallowed up in the organization of the World Cup of football, in Brazil, are legitimately criticized. The graffiti is signed Paulo Ito, an artist who made his first arms in 1997 by asking the drawings to the airbrush on kraft paper, before opting for the bombs in the street, under the influence of his compatriots Os Gêmeos and Titi Freak especially. Early May, that is on a wall of a school of Sao Paulo - now one of the world capitals of the street art - that it is reached, in the framework of the Mostra of Graffiti e Artes da Vila Pompeia, inspired by a work of the French Goin. The kid hungry for Paulo Ito became the symbol of the people bled for the benefit of the powerful, by round ball interposed. At least, outside of Brazil.

On the spot, the stakes are much more nuance than a battle of good against evil. If something has been successful since the election of President Lula da Silva in 2002, it is well the assistance provided to the poorest. What is lacking in their base, as in that of the middle class of elsewhere, this are the health and education systems worthy of a great country such as Brazil, shaken since a year ago by the incessant demonstrations. The racer has therefore force the stroke. It is also what explains the impact of his graffiti, as we told Paulo Ito himself: "I desire to provoke a debate. I think that I have synthesized something that people believed or perceived. It is true that the situation in the country has improved. But I believe that, sometimes, the humor may emphasize certain problematic very literally. " His Facebook page is now followed by 13,000 persons and we can discover, on his Flickr account, of other works which may be thinking that they slam more fort.

Behind the shaft Paulo Ito, a forest of graffiti anti-Copa pushes to the approach of the competition, in cities Sao Paulo and Rio but also in the larger cities in the north. The trend is documented on Facebook by the Movimento Decoracão Anti-Copa who presents a selection in bulk, without much worry about crediting the artists. It recognizes for example the paintings of Cranio who stage a vengeful Indian on the walls of Sao Paulo. But, in the image of Brazilian society that the Copa do Mundo torn, graffiti are less united than it seems. Among the most famous, several have made the choice of football and of contracts that we can imagine juicy. Thus, the plane carrying the players of the selecao has been painted by the stars Os Gêmeos. Eduardo Kobra, him, has dressed a cornet of fries McDonald's special Copa. A Recife, Derlon has asked a beautiful graffiti of welcome to American fans, at the invitation of a site of merchandising, before being covered with a scathing " Forums! Forums! Fifa" ( "reached! Reached! Fifa).  In Rio, it is a Neymar croque by the duo Early e Wark, who has been trimmed with the hood of the Black Bloc, the anarchist group which in decoud daily with the Military Police. On the walls, in the streets and in the stages, this Copa has not said its last word.

EUGENIO MERINO: ALWAYS SHAMELESS AT UNIX GALLERY NYC.

always shameless


UNIX Gallery is pleased to announce “Always Shameless” an exhibition of new work by Eugenio Merino. The exhibition opens amidst the artist’s ongoing legal battles to defend freedom of speech in Spain after being sued over his controversial sculptures depicting dictator Francisco Franco (1892-1975). His highly politicized works will be on display at UNIX Gallery New York, 532 W 24th St, from June 12th - July 12th, 2014. An opening reception will be held on Thursday June 12th, 2014 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
“Always Shameless” is the culmination of a project Merino began in 2011 with Always Franco, a life sized sculpture of uniformed Spanish dictator Francisco Franco preserved in a Coca Cola refrigerator. The Fundación Nacional Francisco Franco, an organization dedicated to preserving Franco’s legacy, quickly sued the artist over the sculpture as well as for a second sculpture the artist created of the dictator. Merino went to trial twice to defend his freedom of speech and won both cases.
Despite the legal setbacks, the artist has continued his series of sculptures of political figures for the exhibition. The title of the show “Always Shameless” is a play on the 1993 Coca Cola slogan “Always”. Merging the political nature of the artist’s sculptures with the branding of a universally recognized product brings these ultimately dark and poignant works into the more accessible forum of popular culture.
Merino’s work undoubtably reflects his struggle as a politically active and controversial artist. Speaking directly to the issues of manipulation and control throughout the 21st century, his works challenge the artistic and social limits his subjects have set upon their respective societies. Their legacies have been preserved simply through our participation in keeping their reigns alive;“it seams incredible that General Franco is still oppressing artists in Spain from beyond the grave”(Jonathan Jones, The Guardian).
Born in 1975 in Spain, Eugenio Merino graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid. Coverage of Merino’s work can be found worldwide in publications such as ArtNewspaper, The Telegraph, and Art Tribune. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has participated in a variety of art fairs, including Volta NY, Volta Basel, ARCO (Madrid), Art Brussels, FIAC (Paris), Armory Show, Arte Fiera (Bologna), Art BO (Bogota), Zona Maco (Mexico), Art Miami and has exhibited in the MOCA Museum of Taipei and the B.P.S.22 in Charleroi (Belgium).
Eugenio Merino lives and works in Madrid, Spain.

New And Later Issues.


1.Toilet Paper is an artists’ magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, born out of a passion or obsession they both cultivate: images. The magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outbursts.

2.1968: Radical Italian Design, the newest project from Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari’sToilet Paper in collaboration with the Deste Foundation in Athens, offers an unorthodox, kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou collection of Italian Radical Design furniture. Led by avant-garde design firms such as Archizoom, Superstudio, Global Tools and 9999, Radical Design was firmly opposed to the ethics, and indeed the very notion of, "good design" or taste.
