“Den nya regeringen återinför gratis entré på statliga museer.
Syftet är att minska bildningsklyftan mellan olika grupper i samhället.

“The most closed and shadowed place : “The Korean Art Scene”. What’s it like to live inside there?…For a long time, Korea’s Arts scene was the field that was most hidden under a veil and concealment.To exist as an Artist, not compromising to gain the popularity of the people and work for his artistic visions is simply asking for a rough, hard way of living.
This film is not a fantasy about the romantic lives of the painters of the 19th century.
This is a painter’s serene self narrative of conflicts living in the 21st century, which has totally lost its romance and purity of the Arts. His life includes no passionate romance, exaggeration for artistic chatharsis, no overnight drunken debates.
Only the dose of loneliness and cold reality that is shoved into his face daily, and the calm feelings of sorrow are drily melted into his works.
This is a story about not only the painters in fine Arts, but ALL the pure artists of all genres, who refuses to climb the ladder of compromise and adaptation and lives alone staying true to his Arts.”
Jean-Michel Basquiat, the first American artist of African descent to achieve international stardom, often referenced Africa or the African diaspora in his work. Take, for example, 1983′s “The Nile” (a painting that featured nods to Egyptian hieroglyphs, the Nile and the Nuba in Sudan) and “Gold Griot” (1984).

“TagsAndThrows bought train tickets to go to the lovely city of Copenhagen to take pictures of tags and throw-ups. While there we linked up with Ozone, Vanity and Bravo for a couple of beers and a night around the city. Music by Smutskatt.”
“The first half of the complete movie is in black/white, the second half, color—guessing that was done due to the expense of color film.”
“View a screening of Jean Michel Basquait: The Radiant Child at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MOAD). Following the film, a panel of academics and artists discuss the enduring impact of this legendary artist.”
