Culture: January 2009 Archives


Large poster of Hindenburg during the first ballot of the Reich presidential election, March 13, 1932

I am really enjoying looking through the images provided by the German Federal Archives to Wikimedia Commons. Look at that building! We can barely get anything that modern in New York in 2009!

Next weekend, the Chelsea Symphony (we think they're awesome) is honoring artist Louise Fishman for her 70th birthday. The program includes a new work by Aaron Dai based on a text by poet and former presidential candidate Eileen Myles inspired by Louise's "Angry Paintings".
