  • A Flowering of Meaning - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    decade as competitors to the Western media s supremacy In India there are more than 20 all news cable stations In Southeast Asia there is a flourishing network of blogs and news websites that bypass their countries censored press No longer forced to view their world through a Western lens a thriving international media is providing the world with a new awareness and with it a new meaning The first Palestinian intifada was primarily covered by the American and European media for a Western audience But as Palestinian journalist In am El Obeidi pointed out the second intifada in 2000 was covered by an Arab media whose journalists were formed of locals as familiar with the history of the conflict as they were with people s feelings and culture For the first time Palestinians felt that they were no longer subjects of an outside narrator They felt that their story was being told and narrated by themselves The rise of the international media is having a important effect in helping change the world s balance and tone Where once American and British voices drowned out all the others the growth of the international 24 hour cable news channel is finally giving the rest of the world its own platform Not only can Asia Africa and South America now tell its side of the story it can challenge Western claims and assumptions During the Gulf War CNN and BBC were the only television stations with correspondents in Baghdad which meant the entire world watched a war in the Middle East on two Western stations But for the Iraq War at a time when the Western media was banging the war drum the loudest Al Jazeera provided the world with critical coverage of the American and British led invasion Just when Western

  • Michael Landy - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    Artists Michael Landy distanced himself from the material success that came to define his counterparts when he systematically catalogued and destroyed each of his more than 7 000 personal possessions in 2001 Break Down saw the destruction of everything from childhood photographs to kitchen utensils and socks leaving the artist with no material means of self definition Landy s effects were placed into gaping plastic bins and left to circulate on a conveyor belt for two weeks before meeting their final end The show s onlookers witnessed the reversal of production line consumerism a microcosmic experiment in which the capitalist model of logic was inverted and subsequently destroyed Break Down was intended as an examination of consumer culture but it was also an act of purification both personal and philosophical that severed Landy s physical connection to the past It was a sacrifice made to the possibility of something entirely new FROM Adbusters 88 The Post Postmodernism Issue Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Richard Wright Nicolas Hughes Also In This Magazine Acceptance One day François left for good May 26 2010 Anselm Kiefer In the next era all thought will be vertical March 31 2010

  • Richard Wright - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    art that was designed to be destroyed designed to exist only temporarily before being reabsorbed by the space surrounding it Wright s paintings are now entirely contextual He creates work for specific architectural spaces injecting new meaning into previously overlooked corners of our existence His subtle ambient designs imbue physical space with emotional content expanding our understanding of both space and our own role within it The art is defined by its fragility both physical and temporal Wright s delicate curvilinear designs don t only echo organic forms Because they are fleeting and profoundly mortal they essentially are organic Each work has a lifespan of weeks perhaps months before it is rolled over with white paint leaving the art to exist only in the memories of those who have seen it By its very nature Wright s ephemeral work exists outside the market It cannot be traded collected or owned And the impermanence of his creations serves to undercut the idea of the object as eternal directly confronting our notions of continuity and existential persistence Wright disrupts a primordial human narrative by forcing us to view space and time as fragments rather than as a continuum thus leaving us to
