        11/30/05
        there have been rumours for a long time: Galleri Wang , one of the flag ships of Norwegian contemporary art, has problems with their economy. A few days ago it became clearer as their two main investors pulled out.

        This is not any longer breaking news in Norway since it was
        one of

        11/30/05
        I just wrote a longer note for the blog -- online for some reason -- and then it disappeared as I posted it.

      • is there anybody out there
        11/28/05
        a norwegian art dealer wrote in a student news paper when he was studying art history that [contemporary] art is a surplus (of society). He wrote this in connection to the closing down of a [independent] contemporary art space as the city where he then lived would not support it financially. He was

        11/27/05
        the technology blog at guardian are looking into what geeks like. They have seen into the best geek novels written in engslish since 1932 (to my pleasure, The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy won -- they do mention lofoten somewhere in the first part by the way...)

        11/27/05
        james wagner points out that there is a new book on stanley kubric.
        and he made a very nice comment about it in his blog pointing out that he probably the last person discovering kubric as a photographer.

        I have watched kubrick films and thought about his work a lot over the past

        11/24/05
        I guess it was not a great surprise, but I did not get the job at Art in Nordland... they are still looking for a director, so if anyone wants to move above the artic circle and work on contemporary - international, I might add - art. then go to their site and send them an mail. I haven't given

      • update to radiodays
        11/23/05
        I like the sound of 'radiodays'.
        Have added a static page named 'artlinks: sound and Radio'. There are maybe more sound than radio in there by now, but I liked them all what I had time to hear so far.

        many of the links I found at Magnetic Spirits link site. This

      • new to the blogroll....radiodays
        11/21/05
        I was going to blog about the blogs I have updated to my read-list, but I will be writing about art radios and art sound online.

        I guess listening to radio online is nothing new, and I guess there is no surprise in the fact that the only hard core online radio from an art institution I s

        Making lists are fun, and since I found out that none of my favourite games are on the top ten lists ľ well, what can I say?

        Not that that is entirely true; half-life, civilization, Lemming, Quake, DOOM, X-COM: UFO DEFENSE, Jet Set Willy (almost forgot that one), Pirates, Star Wars: TIE F

        I once had a very nice job at the local art museum here in leipzig (Galerie fŘr Zeitgen÷ssische Kunst) as a part of the Counter Strike project that SUPERFLEX did there i the beginning of 2003. (go to the home page of Superflex to read more about it).

      • artforum.com - conflicts of interest
        11/11/05
        it is such a relief to read MAN, and I am very glad every time he touches upon the very delicate subject of Artforum.com and their sloppy editorial work.
        here is another take on the subject.
        I think the reason is that the art world does not have the same look upon conflic of interest that
