d21 
D21 , my space in leipzig are experiencing growth problems. We are low on following:
- cash
- manpower

Both are crucial. We got money from EU through a program called Urban to renovate our space. We get 10.000 € if we spend 14.000, so in principal we should have 14.000 or et least 4.000 on our bank account, but this is just not doable. So we do not know how to move on. Also, I am in Norway most of the time now days due to studies (journalism in Bod). But I will know on Monday if I can continue there, they want to ban due me being away all the time.
But D21 is opening two exhibitions today, Isabelle Cornaro and Reto Pulfer. I like both. Different and good. Not the usual thing to see in Leipzig none of them.

hate 
i HATE both this blog-program and Opera [the web browser, not the singing technique, although I am not to found in that either]. After writing a long, very long update for this blog, I hit the wrong combination of ctr+[another button] and ended up ending opera, of course, the text was not saved and is now for ever lost. Update on following things:
- Manifesta mess (nothing new, just me publishing some words about it finally)
- me and Heman Chong's project Philip is going to be realized at PROJECT ARTS CENTRE in Dublin later this year.
- D21 making and possible breaking (a grand success in the eyes of the art scene in Leipzig)
- other stuff

will come later.
