CiTiZEN KINO #91
at Insel Der Jugend, Treptow
 
Invite/Info:
 
XLterrestrials present 
CiTiZEN KiNO ( #91) : “Re-embodied Music + Praxis“
In this episode we navigate a variety of films + clips about artists using music for social change, revolution, healing and/or cultures of resistance. As Fela Kuti once famously said from the epicenter of one of Nigeria’s brutal regimes, “Music is a weapon !“  Of course music can be many others things, but in our own severely troubled times with global-scale chaos unfolding, perhaps we could use some wild inspiration from those who have wielded their artistry and radical concepts as deeply engaged political action! This show is also our tribute to Ton Steine Scherben, the legendary anarchist rock collective, whose fierce art still permeates the movements for solidarity and autonomous zone cultures. 
 
CiTiZEN KiNO is a series of situationist-like interventions, an expanded cinema that mixes + hacks film, mass media, performance, social gatherings and the public sphere
 
Tues.,Sept.7
at Insel Der Jugend, Treptow
( in the harbor, beside the foot of the bridge that leads to the island )
A collaboration with Unkraut Kollectiv’s Boat  
 
Start time is punctual !
20:30 - Intro to the C-KiNO project
21:00 - the main CK#91 playlist   
 
Donations welcomed !

16.Juli ~~ Ep.No.65 : Pay It All Back !
 
Title plundered from the brilliant On-U-Sound compilations.
 
We got a crazy batch of new stuff from archivist + Dj Herr Ungrund... 
 
Topics are being assembled.
Always too many things to babble about... it's picking which ones are the most urgent + radical is the tricky part.
 
We have a nice new arts+praxis meetup on weds. nites, so if u are in Btropolis, write us at podinski email, and we can let ya know where we are. we mention it here, b/c it is also a great place to assemble + bounce ideas for the GRK shows. So welcome to come help us create the content flows. 
 
Some topics:
The Anthropocene-themed show at TOP galerie in NK
Sven Kalden's Lina Braake Bank installation + events
( + new book called Patterns )
 
We are currently researching our current Financial Trainwrecks,  Debt and positive ( direct ) actions like Basic Income for an upcoming Citizen Kino #89: Economic Hoodoo Part 2... ( the sequel of a show we did several years ago, which included some things about Lucio Urtubia - the anarcho- "banker", counterfeiter. )
 
GRK book alert ! Was hoping to pick up a 2nd hand copy Graeber's 5000  Years of Debt...  But instead, found Marget Atwoods 2008 book "Payback" 
 
Interesting angles... with a storytelling writer's mastery...  for our C-Kino research for " Economic Hoodoo Part 2" ...  But we suspect this might have inspired Graeber to do his more... fighting-the-system +  radical- anarcho-antrhopo investigation into the same topic... and historical analysis...  a few years later.

9.Juli ~~ Ep.no.64 ~~
Cultural Anxiety + The Evolution of (metaphorical) Monsters
 
well, we had technical problems last week, so there was NO STREAM, but things are back to full functioning.
 
So for themes and topics, we will be plundering stuff from our last 2 weeks which we didnt get to, cause we have mostly been spinning music for the outdoor visitors. But 2nite is supposed to be rainy, so a good nite to get into some topical materials... and get chatty, perhaps.
A guest artist, visiting from Copenhagen, might also drop in to tell us what is going on in her worlds.
 
 And we got some good news bits to add to the list:
 
 1. WHOA ! ... David Graeber's Music Library !!! ... ( 17839 tracks. You're  viewing the first of 744 pages. ). Thx to Nika Dubrovsky  for making  this available. This is the kind of ultimate archives treasure hunt that  all music-sharing anarcho-radio-pirate-heads will love... and make good  use of... ❤ .... expect to hear some of this on the next GRK ep.no. 64... July 9th...  https://music.davidgraeber.org/
 
 2. "Cryptocurrencies’ dream of escaping the global financial system is crumbling " - Quinn Slobodian .... some interesting analysis... https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jul/05/cryptocurrencies-financial-system-digital-future
 
 OR.. search for news on "cashless society".
 
 3. " Internet Speech Will Never Go Back to Normal"
 
 opps. isn't that kind of blatant china bashing propoganda a source for pointless conflict? sorry, but dear godess that article is just one terrible (erroneous) statement after another. not even fit for toilet paper. I really find the atlantic hard to put my finger on. Always feels like absolute lies peddled as absolute truth. or somesuch.
 
 4. Btropolis Artists take on the Antrhopocene Themes at TOP galerie in NK
 "Leviathan: A Capitalocene Beastiarium |"

Grk ep.no.56: : Oh the sweetness of engineered Efficiency + Madness !
19:00h CET
 
( mostly musik ? )
 
news, topics and announcements welcome ...
add Here:
 
1. Inspring text from J. Jordan  ( living the arts+praxis + cultures of resistance at the ZAD ) written for CTM Transmediale 2021: 
Sounds + Fury
 
2. Konrad Zuse and the 1st Computer
 
Dear unciv and arts + praxis friends...
    
On the 80th anniversary of the invention of the FIRST Computer in Berlin ( May 12, 1941 ):
    
As usual missing from this history of Konrad Zuse (  see below ) - the inventor of the 1st Turing-complete Rechner - perhaps the more important part of the story is that while being obsessed with a technological solution of creating a "mechanical  brain" ( as it is claimed: to do statistical work in aviation ) he utterly failed to take into account the situations he was living in: an industrialized + predatory + murderous society that was losing its humanity. 
         
Zuse was employed by the 3rd Reich, and was working towards creating the computational mechanisms of what would become guided missiles. Whether the story that he just wanted to  resolve the problem of boring calculations is real or made up to  obscure these origins of computing as wartime goals is hard to determine. But there is at least one academic who has written critical papers on Zuse, but they are not going to be published ( in FAZ ) on the 80th anniversary... I will try and come back another time to post some links. In short, the more    important angle or questions:
    
A. Was Zuse a soulless idiot Nazi collaborator, and not a genius pioneer !?
    
B. If the origins of computing is designed for WEAPONRY, how should that understanding effect our relationships to our machines today ?             
           
C. And now,  are the dominant technological environments we are so deeply immersed in the fruitful MIC gardens of ever more Efficiency and Madness ?!
      
____________
    
From FAZ.net... feel free to read between the lines :   
 
 " Wie Konrad Zuse vor 80 Jahren in Berlin den Computer erfand" 
      
( if needed, please use Deep L or other translator )

hmm, wonder if the archives are up yet ?!!
 
3. JA denied bail
 
4. Article on Corona 
from Byung-Chul Han is a South Korean philosopher 
from May 2020
 
dated -- yeah, it's dated in the sense that at that point the chronic and idosyncratic health effects of the virus hadn't yet manifested themselves in younger cohorts 
relevant -- I like the final point that the virus and 2020/1 may be remembered as the point of geopolitical inflexion from the West to the East 
[input from SeSi]
 
 
5. Georgia turns blue
( will the dem party now know what to do ? )
 
 ________________
 
excerpt from Point 4 :
 
  "The coronavirus is showing that human vulnerability or mortality is not democratic, but depends on social status. Death is not democratic. Covid-19 has not changed anything in this respect. Death has never been democratic. The pandemic, in particular, highlights the social problems, failures and differences in each society. With Covid-19, the working poor of immigrant origin in the peripheral areas of large cities fall ill and die. They have to work. Carers, factory workers, cleaners, shop assistants and rubbish collectors cannot afford to work from home. The rich, on the other hand, move into their homes in the countryside.
    "The pandemic is not just a medical problem, it is a social problem. One reason why so many people have not died in Germany is because there are not as many social problems as in other European countries and the United States. Also the health system is much better in Germany than in the United States, France, England or Italy".
    "The second problem is that Covid-19 does not support democracy. As is well known, autocrats feed on fear. In the crisis, people return to look for leaders. The Hungarian Viktor Orban benefits greatly from this, declares a state of emergency and makes it normal. This is the end of democracy.
    "With the pandemic we are moving towards a regime of bio-political surveillance. Not only our communications, but even our bodies, our state of health become objects of digital surveillance. The pandemic shock will cause digital biopolitics to take hold worldwide, which with its control and surveillance system will take over our bodies, leading to a biopolitical disciplinary society in which our health status will also be constantly monitored.

Episode no.13 : Boycott Fracky World
June21 20:00 (CET)
via Smoo Bar
 
Topics ?
 
1. Fracky World
 
This news is stirring up some debate about what to do now in the ubiquitous surveillance krapitalist domains :
 
Nothing exaclty new, Zuckerborg has been enabling this shit all along. One of our first really really gruesome views of its escalating level of insidiousness was back when George Bush was invited to FB HQ to plug his new post-prez auto-bio book... (year?) ... But of course we already new it was a shithole concept and a threatening new weaponizing of mass comm from its very outset.  We just didnt have the term Surveillance Capitalism yet.
 
 
If FB is not dealt with before Nov. ... it is a very good chance that Trump will manage to steal another election. It has been pointed out that these platforms are the primary engines of his campaign strategies. 
 
( revisit the Cambridge Analytica story )
 
2. Report back on June 20th Mietenwahnsinn Demo

Globalist Radio Kit Episode no.11 :
“Progress Towards What?!”
LIVE 20:00 - 23:00h ( CET )
https://globalista.openradio.in/


 
Globalista Radio Kit  ( GRK ) is a pop-up radio shop which began icecasting ( streaming ) as the Corona Pandemic kicked in, quarantines began and public space became restricted. As things begin slowly re-opening, we continue our programs in order to create discussions about all our current situations and dramatic changes that are unfolding all around us. Most crucially we wish to inform and inspire our communities in order to be an active force in shaping our daily lives, social interactions, autonomy and whatever comes next.  


 
This week we are excited to announce that we will set up at a new partner location. 
The Smoobar in Friedrichshain.
http://smoobarcafe.com/


 
Sundays are flea market days at Boxhagenerplatz. And the streets surrounding the square will be closed to traffic. This presents an interesting location to experiment and engage the public in our discussions, and supporting local merchant businesses + livelihoods.
 


In this episode, we would like to examine a few films, and a number of topics. 

Sorry To Bother You, Boots Riley ( 2018 )

Picnic on the Grass, Jean Renoir ( 1959 )

The Great Silence ( short,1970s )
etc.
 


We - the XLterrestrials - have been getting into quite a few debates + on-the-ground struggles over the years regarding the directions humans have been steering “spaceship earth” ( a term from Buckminster Fuller ). Our path as a species ( and an increasingly homogenous society ) has been looking pretty grim for some time. We are, to be brief, in pretty deep shit. Big changes are not just on the horizon, they are erupting in real time. Not to sound like a rabid Milton Friedman carpetbagging krapitalist, but this actually does present an unusual moment of grand opportunities. From a grassroots perspective, this is our chance to ditch all of the worst aspects of exploitative + destructive + racist systems that have emerged to mangle the “good nature” that humans can possess + practice when the gardens of life are more like a commons for all to nurture and be nurtured. But also realistically, the damage that has been done to our planet is severe, and we will need to work together to repair + detourn this epic-scale mess ! So let’s analyze and navigate in a climate of upgraded collective intelligences. 


 
In addition to our main themes, we also will be randomly discussing  some recent news items throughout the evening, which may become        a list of "chapters" or "reports" in the program including the         planet-killing machine that is global (corporate) agriculture,         the racist history/future of amerikkka, and the murky world of         hackers-for-hire. 
 
To follow the development of our topics for all episodes, and participate in the discussions and research gathering, and sharing of resources. Join us on the Chaos Pad, open 24/7 :

Ep.11 Notes:
 
Quite possibly one of the most important film works of the last few  decades providing a non-anthropocentric and zoological ( and/or zoonotic  ) study of babbling humans ... rediscovered by a/v geeks  :
 
The Great Silence
 
;)
 
 
 
 
++ 9.6.2020 EPSODE 10: 
 
Please Note: We will only be doing MUSIK for Episode10, because the cafe - now open - is no longer a good setting to focus on topics and analysis, and chatting with guests. BUt we will use the research below for Episode 11 on our new Sunday NIGHTS in F-Hain Kiez. 
 
 
No theme yet...
But some resources:
 
 
New Juice news, Honest Ads
Economic Recovery ( theme )

using cinema, jitsi groups, tactical media, public navigations
 
Also
Jean Renoir’s 1959 film “Picnic on the Grass” (Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe)
 
 
Well, of course there's a load of unhelpful 5g info flying around, but dont let that distract you from hating mr. Bill fuckin Gates:

This episode is likely a continuation of our themes about this neufeudalism depiction of our current socio-economic and technodystopian mess...
 
Plus we will continue with another round of sci-fi soundtracks, including some the Afrofuturism genius of Sun Ra... and some more contemporary descendents like Moor Mother. 
 
And trying to stay on top of the corona times analysis, we found some excellent likes from the Wu Ming collective:

++ 19.5.2020 : GRK Episode 7 : The Neofeudalist Platforms 
20:00 ( CET ) til late
 
The chapters:
 
and we go fwd with our GRK programs, in raw and wild style... 
2nite we will dive into a mash up of HEAVY MATERIAL.... 
 
1. Jodi Dean"s review of McKenzie Wark"s latest "Is Capitalism Dead ?..." 
+ 1.2. Wark"s promo interview with Verso. 
2. Neofeudalism, here we are ! 
+ 2.1 technotopia throws labor under the bus 
3. Jodorowsky"s Techno-Priests 
4. Rupert Sheldrake"s challenge to the "priesthood" of Big Science 
( mechanistic worldview ) 
5. the Bubonic Merry-Go-Rounds ... Frank Snowden on the history of medicine and a scholar on fascism... 
 
too much to handle in one show, but we will experiment with the chaos... 
 
 
  PART 1
 
Jodi Dean
 
Wark / Verso promo interview
the long version (20?min) https://invidio.us/watch?v=eiV0wS_in-4
 
Astra Taylor"s The People's Platform ( 2014 )
 
  PART 2
 
Perhaps as a dual theme:
 
Analyzing the " materialist ideology " that has determined the course of the scienceS ... and thus our technologically-dominant 4th industrial revolution now under way. 
 
Ruper Sheldrake's book The Science Delusion ( or Science Set Free , title of the US version to avoid that it would be seen as a rightwing tract that was anti-evolution and anti-climate change ) he skillfully makes clear how a particlar ideological understanding of Nature is part of the methodology of our techno-colonial subjugation, whereby living organisms are turned into biological machines,  and other "languages" of being, experiences and possibilities of other sciences are ruled out.
 
And old review of his 2012 book:
( not a science writer, but a decent overview of the controversies )
 
 
From the final chapter:
Scientific Futures
 
The Sciences are entering a new phase. The materialist ideology that has ruled them since the 19th century is out of date. All ten of its essential doctrines have been superceded. The authoritarian structure of the sciences, the illusions of objectivity and the fantasies of omniscience have all outlived their usefuleness. 
 
The sciences will have to change for another reason too: they are now global. Mechanistic science and the materialist ideology grew up in Europe, and were strongly influenced by the religious disputes that obsessed Europeans from the 19th c. onwards. But these preoccupations are alien to the cultures and traditions in many other parts of the world.
 
... the sciences as (also) taught in Asia, Africa, the islamic countries and elsewhere are still packaged in an ideology shaped by their European past. Materialism gains its persuasive power from the technological applications of science. But the sucesses of these applications do not prove this IDEOLOGY is true. 
 
Excerpt from Chapter 2:
 
The meachanistic theory is based on the metaphor of the machine. But it is only a metaphor. LIVING ORGANISMS provide better metaphors for organised systems at all levels of complexity, including molecules, plants, and societies of animals, allof which are organized in a series of inclusive levels, in which the whole at each level is more than the sum of its parts, which are themselves whole at a lower level. Even the most ardent defenders of the mechanistic theory SMUGGLE purposive principles into living organisms in the form of the selfish gene or genetic programs. In the light of the Big Bang theory, the entire universe is more like a growing, developing organism than a machine slowly running out of steam.
 
to be cont.
 
  PART 3 ?!
And if we are crazy enough, it mght make sense to put the Jododorowsky Jodoverse into the mix...
 
His collaborations with the graphic novel worlds to make The Techno-Priests could be very useful here.
 
 
  PART 4:
Frank Snowden
bubonic plague, measels, small pox, measels, yellow fever, and the Haitian Revolution !

  THE MUSIK :
 
Just as we sat down to hunt for Xtra music for 2nite's GRK themes , our  comrade dj Elmo Lewis posted a tribute to Peter Thomas who died a couple  days ago, the composer for Raumpatrouille and many soundtracks. Since  the river theme worked so good for last week"s show, to have a focus...  NOW hunting music for.......  Sci-fi FiLMS and TV ! ! ! ... and all  sci-fi related music !
 
P.Thomas:
 
And if anyone can find a good oline version of Mr Bungle's cover of Thomas "Love in Space" ... we might have a prize for YOU !

++ 12.5.2020 : GRK Episode #6: The Hyper-Industrialized Rivers of No Return ?! ... 
20:00 ( CET ) til late
 
1. songs about rivers
2. topics about whether we can GO BACK to an existence in balance with nature, or are we headed ever deeper into an anthropocenic and man-made mess, a technodystopian nightmare, a hyper-industrialized slavery to feed the machines ... and accelerate the plunder of earth ?
 
The bullshit cliches of "we can't go back", assumes that we are on a path towards progress.  But if any human life form walks into a burning theater, there is clearly only a couple of intelligent responses: to either put out the fire or to exit as quickly as possible !
 
Naomi Klein's article on the SCREEN NEW DEAL
tells alot about what we are facing as corporate and state tech go headlong down the gruesome + very predictable trails of control, control, control... the virus of control !
 
 
 
more thoughts, feedback, resources...

Peter Gabriel - Washing of the Water

....
 
Recently the XLt Analysts got into some debates as to whether China is ALSO going down an extremely problematic path of destroying environments + habitats around the world to feed their needs/addictions for economic growth, enegry and resource extraction for all the consumer goods that they produce for the world markets. And they may have the most ambitious global development + moderization + infrasturcture projects around the world. And are already building and/or proposing a vast number of ( hydro-electric ) dam projects - some  the largest - of any other international investor. 
 
The positive news is that they are investing in the most ambitious green innovation projects of any other G20 country. And their economic + development strategies could possibly liberate us all from the Krapitalism OS. 
 
BUT, if we wish to avoid a total eco collapse, perhaps this is all heading in the wrong direction. Will China also need to change its vision for the future ?! Is Hyper-industrialization A RIVER OF NO RETURN that will lead to irreparable ecological damage + a permanent technodystopia... or worse, an accelerated mass extinction that threatens a tipping point into planetary dead zones, a globally  cooked environment, desertification, and centuries of a new dark age of machine-lands ruled by patriarchal MAN-made mutant cultures ?!
 
What good is a marxist ( technological ) revolution if we are all TOAST in 20-30 years ?! Of course we all know that's where the current dominating imperialist OS will lead us... BUT maybe we need to rethink our exits... It's certianly not merely a technological fix that will get us to an inhabitable balance ! Is there even any possibility of returning to a world where (intelligent?) + ( non-anthropocentric ) "Nature" is a guiding structure for life.
 
XLterrestrials suspect any "Green New Deal" that pumps out this "4th Industrial Revolution" shit ( 5G, AI, IOT, Total Cybernetic Immersion, Algo Governance + Surveillance State Expansionism, corporate tech overlords, etc. )  we can probably expect a variety of grueling dystopian outcomes !

EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER PLEA:
This is a rough beginning for an upcoming XLT analysis text...
unfortunately our XLterrestrials.org blog is DOWN, and we need to rescue it ! We need about 300$ to secure our domain and pay up on our bills. ( from +10 years of hosting, which was provided by Possible Worlds, long story, but that's the short version )
 
We may lose control of the domain in June, if not taken care of.

Flattening of the Truth:
 
May 1st show was cancelled, sorry about that...
but that means we still got all that great collected music to play for ... 2nite's show !
 
Start time 20:00h (CET )..
we hope, studio is still undergoing some construction and things may be delayed. 
 
Other topics:
 
From " falttening in the truth " we got to a funny picture of the 2 YipYIP Muppet  characters ( ( Xtra terretsrials? ) made into an image re: the flat earth conspiracy theories...
 
And it would be great to segway to the "conspiracy theories" that help "flatten truths " ... 
 
And coincidentally we came to a rare good article about the C-theories called "Beneath C-theries, the class war "
