New documentary: “How to sell a Banksy”.

January 27th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Check out the trailer below.. Hypebeast writes:

“Banksy’s work now reportedly changes hands for millions. But he puts up his street art for free. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got your hands on one of these? Does it mean you’ve found a winning lottery ticket or just scraped some worthless crap off a wall? Going up against the art establishments, critics, auction houses, gallery owners and authentication boards in a quest for the elusive meal ticket, two filmmakers unwittingly gatecrash the murky and protective world of Banksy. How to Sell a Banksy raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day true story.”

The Sartorialist – A Visual Life

January 7th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Many of you probably already know the blog “The Sartorialist“ is one of the most successful fashion Blogs written by Scott Schumann.  My girlfriend is often inspired by his photographs and occasionally i check it myself. What´s it about? He says:

“I started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people that I saw on the streets of New York that I thought looked great. When I worked in the fashion industry (15 years), I always felt that there was a disconnect between what I was selling in the showroom and what I was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life.”

He does a great job and the short and well shot documentary gives us some great insight about his process and the way he approaches people on the street.

Paul Kalkbrenner 2010: A Live Documentary.

November 12th, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Alright..this might be my first and last Paul Kalkbrenner post.. i tell you why:
I did like his music before, but can´t really listen to it anymore since it turned so mainstream.
Mister Kalkbrenner ist flying high since “Berlin Calling” and this documentary probably is the “icing” on the cake. So i must say that i got less and less interested in his music due to his massive success. Some people i know that don´t have anything to do with electronic music would be totally into his stuff without any clue about all the other great music out there. And everybody would be so enthusiastic and convinced that he was really living the life they had seen in the movie. Icarus on stage.. it was a little tiring..

But Mr. Kalkbrenner is really bringing some good techno to a massive audience, and for that alone, full respect!
In a way this proves that music turns more accessible with the right emotional side-effects caused by a movie, the story of a city or a dj. Kalkbrenner turned into a superstar.. and i just wonder where this ends and what kind of music he will be producing in the next years. So, im looking forward to see some behind the scenes footage, his trips around the globe to the massive venues, and to see him perform..Go Kalkbrenner!

Don´t believe the hype! :-)
