To what extent can we imagine community, exchange, and collective projects that no longer fall back on the dominant narratives of nation, fatherland, and family?
* This is the question posed by Terre Thaemlitz in a detailed exchange featured in the 16th edition of zweikommasieben. Throughout the new issue of the magazine, similar questions are asked; the artists and musicians featured seem to be looking for a progressive reaction to the feeling of disintegration that we are not only witnessing in the larger society but in the music scene as well.
The questions are subliminally present in the contribution about the independent collective and venue called Macao, or in interviews with musicians such as NON’s Farai or American experimentalist Steve Hauschildt. The answers often remain ambivalent; ultimately there won’t be any utopias. “There’s a sun in the sky,” as Laurel Halo points out in the magazine, “but it’s burning ever hotter.”
Features interviews with Steve Hauschildt, Laurel Halo, DVA Damas, Mechatok, Farai, Parrish Smith and portraits on Nina of Golden Pudel and V.I.S., as well as Casual Gabberz’ Ēvil Grimace & Von Bikräv. There’s also an extended mail exchange with Terre Thaemlitz, “A Short History of the Aesthetics of Excess in Hip Hop”, various columns and a photo essay, plus contributions by Das Ding, Macao, Laraaji and German Army.
