The second interview with Dmytro is done in two parts. Do we need to say more about him?

The point of the radical opposition gets explained; the perception of…

Adrian Shephard talks with Christine Jakobs, Helen Arnold and Daniel Blanchard

Who are these guests? To get a bit of a clue we have to mention Cornelius Castoriadis . He set up a movement called ‘Socialisme ou Barbarie.’ This happened from the tail of the 40s, all through the 1950s and lasted until 1967. Cornelius remained an influential person in French political and filosofical circles. Look at snapshots of him.

Interview with Berlin Chansonoise Coco

Coco came from Hamburg when she made the move to Berlin a few years ago. Hamburg? Isn’t that the German town where a harbour’s nightlife met up with illusions for the common people and gave birth to Springer Verlag? Coco didn’t open a nightclub called Brutal Happy Tapes in Berlin. Maybe that’s a pity. But maybe she didn’t, because she grew up in Germany’s self-proclaimed Utopia: Freistaat Bayern! People from Bavaria run wurstclubs. Brutal Happy Wurst. As always, it is utterly unpredictable where the show will take us. This flyer…
