The Boston Globe recently published a fake cover imagining a time when Donald Trump would be president. The first major daily doing it as the Yes Men did it with their fake New York times - although this was an art project. Art imitates life imitates art imitating life....Here more: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/10/trump-president-boston-globe-predicts-news-fake-front-page

Memefest 2016 Festival theme: PLEASURE


The pleasure of drugs:

At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Esto es inconcebible... Una realidad absurda a los ojos de todos y con la complicidad de todos los gobiernos. Es muy triste ese informe y pensar en la pobreza de las mujeres de los países tercermundistas, que la mayoría de las veces son madres solteras y que ellas solas deben hacerse cargo de sus hijos... Qué futuro nos espera?

Here is a great session on institutional critique. It is focused on art, but this stuff can be very well used for non art institutions as well. Its really important stuff for a imaginative process of redirecting communication/design and art.
