DO IT YOURSELF!

DIY began in the early 1970s during the punk movement with a vision against the society of consumerism. The principle is to refuse to consume what is already existing, and thus to arrive at a phase of personal creation. And why am I telling you that, will you ask me…? Well, I’ll tell you about my history with soap. A year ago, during confinement on Reunion Island, I was trying to take care of myself as best I could. I came across an article talking about the manufacture of soaps, candles, balms and moisturizers which you could produce by yourself:…

Two days of trainings

“[…] The essence of a team is common commitment. Without it, groups perform as individuals; with it, they become a powerful unit of collective performance. “ Some weeks ago, as a group we played a couple of nice games together. They put us in a circle, gave us a ball, and asked to toss it around. When launching it, the name of the intended recipient had to be pronounced aloud. Classic teambuilding, in short. Then they gave us two, then three. This is also a classic, it’s like when you played volleyball in a circle in school and the group…

The Art of Stealing, the Stealing of Art

Good artists copy, great artist steal. What a better to way to start this text than with such copy-pasted cliché phrase, whose very authorship is even debated [1]. Trapped in our hauntological prison of infinite self-referentiality, it is not uncommon for concepts such as originality to be redefined and re-redefined in order to adapt, signify, and operate within the ever-evolving frameworks of collective semantics. The very verbal simulation which frames the coordinates of our understanding of the Universe – our Weltanschauung, if you may – is already conditioned fundamentally and structurally by the recursiveness of the media (language) through which…

Żabka vs Biedronka: a political analysis

I vaguely remember a scene from a few weeks ago: a friend and I, wandering through the freezing Wroclaw night, looking for some intoxicating liquid to spice up our avid throats. It was after six in the morning and not after too much time, like the Promised Land to the Israeli people, a Żabka appeared in front us with the consequent explosion of joy that this entailed. We saw our most primal desires finally able to be satisfied after forty years – maybe it was four minutes but our perception of time was a bit distorted— wandering in the desert.…

On the trail of Wroclaw’s past

Wrocław has about 640,000 inhabitants and is the fourth largest city in Poland. The capital of the Dolny Śląsk voivodeship (Lower Silesia) won the title, in 2016, of European Capital of Culture, and still nowadays Wroclaw is one of the most important cultural cities in the country and, at least for the next year, it is going to be our home. Therefore it is also worthy to learn something about the history of this city, right? For me it is even more important, because my family is from Opole, a city about 100 km west of Wrocław. Same as Wrocław,…
