"The Big Electron"

jag minns att det inte gick att få en vettig överblick över vad kritiken menade var de yttre kriterierna för vetenskaplig metod annat än det vanliga tugget om att en kvantitativ statistisk faktabehandling utan subjektiva interpretationer simsalabim skapar en vetenskaplig teori annars är det som astrologi alltså en scientistisk hållning utan förståelse för strukturella studieobjekt

His comedic sensibility revolved around a central theme: humanity is
a cursed, doomed species.

"I don't have any beliefs or allegiances. I don't believe in this
country, I don't believe in religion, or a god, and I don't believe in
all these man-made institutional ideas,"

he told Reuters in a 2001 interview.

"The Project for a New American Century's stated strategy for maintaining the American superpower in the face of a rising China was to invade and dominate the Middle East, and thus control China's access to oil for the next several decades. That was the intended long-term payoff of the Iraq War: control the oil, and thus control the world. "

Sonja Sekula at Andre Bretons Atelier - NY 1945


I am in the rain, with black writing,

I am in the night with strange hands

I swim in the heat in the humid fear

of day and hate, I close my ear...

and the step the step of the stone that

falls is the space of the heart

and the man in the moon waving good-bye to

the boat that goes where the mouth

is red with a little word that parts where

the womb stands still beyond speaking.

by Sonja Sekula (1918-1963)

Dear Surrealist friends and fellow travellers

SLAG invites you to join efforts in the third London International Festival of Surrealism. This will take place from Monday 18th to Sunday 31st August, not just in London but all around the world. For these two weeks we will be celebrating the spirit of the Surrealist Revolution, playing all sorts of games and conducting investigations into collectivity.

As in previous years, the Festival is not for passive consumption, but requires your active participation, wherever you are. A few weeks before the Festival, we will circulate details of the games and events proposed by contributors. To this end we invite you to submit your proposals to this email address by Monday 14th July so that we can collate them. We welcome proposals for games, investigations, enquiries, dérives, experiments – in fact, any collective pursuit which will further the Surrealist adventure. After the Festival, the results will be collected into an album and distributed to all contributors.

We hope that you will join us for these two weeks of the Festival.

in rivers & streams & lakes
in bookshops, junk shops & markets
in pubs & bars
in parks & gardens & woods
in trains, planes & automobiles
in cafés & restaurants
in cemeteries, wasteground & abandoned sites
in the streets online & offline
everywhere & nowhere...
other than inside a museum,
art gallery or lecture hall.

With regards from SLAG ~ Surrealist London Action Group

US accused of holding terror suspects on prison ships


Hur är läget?

Jag har gjort en kollageserie som Johannes skrev texter till och nu funderar vi på att ge ut den. Eftersom texterna är på svenska borde vi göra det i sverige men hittils hittade vi bara några förlag som kanske kunde funka med det här projektet. Har ni något tips på förlag till oss? Johannes är mera optimistisk men jag tror att till slut måste vi ge ut det själva och trycka några stycken i något billigt tryckeri i polen...

Hoppas att ni njuter sommaren i Stockholm. Jag ska stanna i polen i några månader till för att min mamma är väldigt sjuk och Johannes säger att han ska hålla mig sällskap. Tyvärr var ingen intresserad av att vara med i vår lilla grupp så vi har bara oss att leka med. För ett tag sen försökte vi träffa andra ateister i Szczecin genom att lämna massa lappar om ateism med webadress att kontakta. Som vanligt svarade ingen men för 3 månader sen bildades en grupp rationalister här i stan som vi träffar varje månad. Det är ingenting speciellt, liknar mycket humanisterna och har ganska mjuk attityd, total brist på mötesteknik och otillräckligt kritiskt tänkande. Vi hoppas att det kommer utveckla sig till nåt bättre under tiden. Hur som helst är det bra att folk samlar sig i ett så katolskt dominerat land för att kämpa emot det. Konstigt bara att de börjar så sent som 2008. Vi samarbetar med dem för att just nu finns det inget bättre alternativ.

Snart ska vi framföra en performance på en festival här med användning av massa kors, brevlådor och grisfötter och hoppas att göra en annan nästa månad som heter "Darwin promenad" om vi slipper fängelsestraff efter det första förstås.

Vi båda saknar Stockholm hemskt mycket men har ingen aning om när vi ska flytta tillbaka dit. Jag vet att det låter löjligt när jag skriver men åtminstone har ni nånting att skratta åt.

Vi hälsar så gott!

Anna & Johannes
