The Cocktail Dress

The Diesel:U:Music Tour comes after Berlin, New York, Tokyo, Helsinki, Oslo, Paris, Madrid, London, on 12 Nov to Vienna and on 17 Nov to Miami. The Italian jeans label Diesel's new talents express lust for life, enjoy to party, prefer extraordinary style and love to break conventions with surprisingly behaviour...

The pieces are for men who "... do not rest on their laurels before they will have won all sports cups within their reach. And until then, they will heat up any season in any continent they set foot on," writes Dirk Bikkembergs. You can decide if you are extending Dirk Bikkembergs' idea of the athlete to your own area of operation; as long as you succeed with a sportive mind...

The Cocktail Dress
The cocktail look is inspired by the song 'Nature Of Inviting' from the IAMX album 'Kingdom of Welcome Addiction':
Cause everything that you are, is everything that is. Survive the golden dreams you try to escape from … It's the nature of inviting.

Mio Myo 
View on the Ghostrockers by Karin Sawetz. The voice and the sound captured my interest. The music opens space within the strings of common harmony. I found a site about the band which provides not much information. Are they Ghost Men?

Men Style 
...They will not force us, 
They will stop degrading us, 
They will not control us, 
We will be victorious...
Rise up and take the power back...

sings Matthew Bellamy from the British alternative rock band Muse.

Music My Secret Friend Berlin based Chris Corner’s video (released Oct 2009) for the IAMX song ‘My Secret Friend’ from the album ‘Kingdom of Welcome Addiction’ (May 2009) shows himself in an evening dress and his song partner, the Grammy nominated English singer and songwriter Imogen Heap. She is dressed in a male suit. Imogen Heap has recently collaborated with Mika on his song 'By The Time' from the album ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’.


Music "There ain't nothing impossible for your love" ...sings the Australian R+B musician Daniel Merriweather in 'Impossible' from the album 'Love and War'.


Music Difficult Guys by Camille Jones The video (released 2009) 'Difficult Guys' is from the album ‘Barking Up The Wrong Tree’ (2008) by the Danish singer/songwriter/producer Camille Jones. “…Difficult Guys has an irresistible beat and is also a kind of signatur track for the album, if something like that exists. It is about contact, or rather the lack of physical contact...” Source: Camille Jones’ MySpace site, where she announces several performances at private parties in Copenhagen in November


Music Matthew Bellamy’s new Muse-single ‘Undisclosed Desires’ is inspired by his girlfriend. “…You trick your lovers, That you're wicked and divine, You may be a sinner, But your innocence is mine…” sings the alternative rock musician. ‘Undisclosed Desires’ was released as the second single from the album 'The Resistance' in November 2009. Watch the new video!


Music Computer, music, performance Intermedia artist Joseph Tekippe participates with his installation ‘Data Sonification 1 (Stock Market)’ which translates the fluctuations in the global financial market into an ambient soundtrack in the exhibition ‘Octet: Codes and Contexts in Recent Art’ from 24 November – 23 December at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Curator and BFA Fine Arts Department Chair Suzanne Anker explains, “In our global world where the familiar can seem foreign and the foreign sometimes overtly familiar, borders have become exceedingly porous between cultures and communities. 'Octet' presents an amalgam of stylistic concerns as a way to present the dynamic flow of advancing patterns within the visual arts.”


Re-created vehicles by artists The Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas finds value in the discarded objects and transforms them into elegant compositions. Together with 10 students from the CCA’s Graduate Program in Fine Arts, Abraham Cruzvillegas creates bicycles and other functional vehicles from found materials. The aim of the project is to address issues specific to the Bay Area such as pollution, community, economics, and politics. The vehicles will be presented with a parade and race with hot dogs and soda pop in front of the CCA’s San Francisco campus on 21 Nov. The exhibition (until 29 Nov) is part of the program 'The Magnificent Seven' at CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts. Watch the video 'Autoconstruccion bike tour' with Abraham Cruzvillegas' 'Autoconstruccion Mobile' from 2008, a customized bicycle with steel pipes, wood, cardboard, cables, car battery, speakers, mirrors, car stereo, video projector, DVD player, tea flask, bell, and horn.

A fetishist nailed mannequin stands for social and political criticism The Swiss born, in Paris living concept artist Thomas Hirschhorn shows his works ‘The Subjecters’ until 5 January 2010 at La Casa Encendida in Madrid. ‘The Subjecter’ stands for the process of how opinion is made in our global world. This process is not visible but exists. Therefore Hirschhorn uses the mannequins because they are “democratic, non-hierarchical” for his personal reflection of truth. Watch the statement by the artist on the video from the Tate Gallery!

Where do artists come from? Are there some particular features in a person’s surroundings that make him or her an artist? When does a person begin being an artist? …questions Lithuanian performance artist Darius Miksys on occasion of his social interaction with the title ‘Parents Meeting’ on 21 Nov during the Performa09, the third visual art performance biennial of New York City. Parents can bring their children!

Fashion tours through the design district in Vienna’s 7tm 7tm means as much as 7th and is the number of the city district 'Neubau' which can be translated as 'New Building' or 'just new built'. Just new is even the edgy fashion scene in this small quarter of the 7th district. The fashion booms mainly on and around the Neubaugasse and Kirchengasse where you can find most of the currently 36 design shops, which have began to coordinate events and shopping tours in 2008. In the pre-holiday weeks 2009, they are organising shopping tours guided by professionals like stylists
