Ep.no.116:  " We were never Post-Colonial" ( nach Latour )
19h CET til late

We will look at the KW institute's 
12. Berlin Biennale für zeitgenössische Kunst
themes are de-kolonialism, not quite sure how heavily they use the term post-colonialism, but we will examine that term, as it's constantly being floated in all the usual academic weak analysis of ongoing global struggles 2day. 

Also this relates to Documenta in Kassel as well, which we hope to visit and examine later in Aug. And there are radio groups to connect with there, and the possibility of doing GRK shows from THERE.

more later....

As usual, the Regenbogen Cafe + Kiez Kneipe  is open 2mrw from 19h ( maybe earlier ) til late.

perhaps the editor from  :
will come by...
Pavel  Arsenev, who is in town for a Walter Benjamin themed conference, and a discussion that was at the Humboldt Uni moderated by Natalia Grinina on weds. nite...
Speaking about  Bolshe Net Slov ( or just Speechless ) - on the limits of protest and  expression in Russia after the invasion of Ukraine. This is the title of their latest ( and possibly last? ) Translit issue, which is an  independent small publishing outlet ( and a community of artists,  theorists, poets, philosophers, etc. ) that was somewhat centered in St.Petersburg, but is now an internationally decentralized production,  with many of those involved now being in flux + transition due to the  increasinglly volatile situations.  

( after midnite )
after their event TONITE 8.7. at the hacklab in Fhain
MItch Altman and Kal Spelletich, 2 mad creators /professor types who are collaborating on a presentation/show about DIY instruments.

update: Kal wont be able to make it 2nite, unfortunately...  but perhaps mitch and some Xhain crew will come by for drinks. 


And other things:
- Slavoj Zizek on the exapnding Ukraine , Ru, Europe, NATO supercollider conflicts....
 ( warning: the Guardian is not exactly known as a de-escalating media outlet, and Zizek is undoubtedly a complex navigator of the infospheres )
 - Fascinating conversation currently on Nettime re: Morozov, Strom, and cybernetic krapitalism in tow with the neoliberal feeding frenzy, and tightening their controls in the freefall of the planetary scale junkship kultur.  w/ the usual suspects and more: Brian Holmes, Felx Stadler, Molly Hankwitz, etc. 
 Kiez News:
 Anti-Gentrification Demo in Btropolis
 on Saturday 9.7. , 15:00 :

Alien Utopias - Part 2

+ Re:publica 22 is on, 8.6-10.6 

+ GRK/XLt alert > great exhibition ( 2 days only ) at the Weizenbaum conf at the Alte Munze.... https://www.weizenbaum-institut.de/en/events-1/weizenbaum-conference-2022-practicing-sovereignty-interventions-for-open-digital-futures/

our own highly subjective + cranky 2cents...

we thought rp was deeply-ridden with naive techno-industry-evangelism
from its beginning, when it was just a smallish blogger fest...and has gotten only steadily worse over the years ;) 
but even the broken clock that is spinning wildly out of control...
might hit a few accurate notes, and have a few worthwhile sessions...

this one should be preety informative on the A.I. Bizness
Kate Crawford 2day june 8 at 17h


we will likely have some more XLT analysis after the week's mess fully seeps in ! ;)

GRK ep.no.108:
Anthropocene vs. Zivilisationsfrage
19h CET start ( til late ) at Regenbogen Cafe
Lausitzer Straße 22 in Kreuzberg

NOTE: We made a small error. Zivilisationsfrage is a FULL 2-day conference, multiple talks/ sessions per day, plus a performance on Sunday. David Wengrow's keynote is 27.5 at 18:00 CET... and continuing talks until about 22h 2nite. All ( main) auditorium talks are streamed by HKW.  So we may not go to Regenbogen to stream GRK 2nite, or if we do, will be much later in the evening, after conference is over.  ( roughly 23h CET start ? )

Currently there are 2 conference topics at HKW...
Anthropocene and Zivilisatonsfrage, the later is the DE title of Graeber and Wengrow’s epic investigations ( in Eng. : The Dawn of Everything )  into a radical anthropological  question as to whether another civilization is possible …  to boil it down to our urgent times and need for immediate social + system change.

For the upcoming HKW events:
and the Anthropocene Curriculum:
 XLT analysis preview:
One of the problems that the XLterrestrials  have with these conferences is that they do not overlap and debate each other, nor even more radically: collaborate + instigate ( for the common good ) !
So we will attempt to construct the necessary conversations between the  two: the hard science and the political struggles, with the added layer of those critical terrestrial zones on the ground, and WE the PEOPLE !
If our last decades of turmoil and exploitations have revealed anything about humanity’s planetary crises, science + technology are clearly not unfettered  from political systems and agendas and economic entanglements… nor are  their implementations in the hyper-industrialized societies some kind of  neutral path to knowledge+progress, much less ecological stewardship.  More often  than not it takes the shape of the oligarch’s pick ax, to whack off new  layers of accumulated power and wealth, and to stuff it into their koffers and warchests.
The XLt have serious issues with the fact  that after more than a decade of Anthropocene discussions, those in the  academic and cultural sectors still wish to dive into measurements and  data collection rather than direct actions and selbst-verteidigung… still putting pictures and  films on the galerie walls to educate and steer, rather than pulling the  FIRE ALARM and evacuating the collapsing empires.

Note: One of the models that could inspire us in ways to more adequately respond to our challenges might be the La ConCiencias - 2 conferences in the south of Mexico, which brought together left ( and from below ) -engaged scientists and thinkers - to discuss with the local communities and imagine strategies of resistance. 
 About: https://towardfreedom.org/story/archives/americas/cracks-in-the-wall-of-capitalism-the-zapatistas-and-the-struggle-to-decolonize-science/
But we are not naive. Big state institutions are not going to present this information so directly. HKW may have its more subtle strategies, but one could argue it cannot deliver the necessary critiques and plans for community-scale action. 

Naturally we appreciate all the work that goes into the research and presentations... and of these types of institutions it may be one of the best at confronting the Anthropocene and our crises. But bringing critiques ( and alien analysis ) to the conversations and debates is essential !
Other news:
- Bandista has a new album release at SO36 on Sunday 29.5
- Kopi has a fun mix of things all-day on Sat. 28.5
