In presence of Rita Vitorelli and Christian Kobald
New issue, All issues, Surprise Screening, Talk »From these scattered and intermittent efforts …«
» …it’s going to be very informal, talking, drinks, smoking, … we haven’t decided yet what to do exactely. the only thing for sure is that we want to speak about some »pop« aspects of spike. we’ve chosen a very open title for the talk »From these scattered and intermittent efforts …«, maybe you just speak of your experince as a writer, or what you find interesting with art magazines in general … this looseness is also very much part of spike, we guess.«
Guests: Öystein Aasan, Joachim Bessing, Barbara Buchmaier, Nick Currie (Momus), Hans-Jürgen Hafner, Andreas Schlaegel and Raimar Stange.
