FILM FOR THE ART & CULTURE

The Greenlandic Film production company TUMIT Production/Nuuk has just delivered their blockbuster to Danish TV. According to the Greenlandic Media, Qaqqat Alanngui is officially the most seen movie in Greenland! Hopefully we see it soon across the cinema landscape all over Europe. Good timing, great topic.

GJOA HAVEN MURAL 2011 - NUSCHOOL DESIGN







Can you keep up with them pace? This is NUSCHOOL DESIGN in GJOA HAVEN. NUSCHOOL as in Iqaluit, NUNAVUT. Jonathan Cruz.
To me this piece stands for "The Pedagogy of Graffiti". "Pedagogy of Hip-Hop Graffiti" is a chapter by Janis Rahn (2002)from her book Painting without permission. Her point is basically what the grand father of space, time & rhythm meant by; "This refers to the needs for creative activity, for the oeuvre (not only of products and consumable material goods), of the need for information, symbolism, the imaginary and play" (Lefebvre 2006:147); on the issue of The Right To The City + and Rights in general).

In 2011, I would like to bring you an interview with NUSCHOOL DESIGN AGENCY. Let's see if time and "needs" meet.
