|OPTRONICA2: DARK SYNTH|
| NOV.17: HANS GRUSEL/BRUTALLO + BECKER + HAUNTED BUCHLA +|
Back by popular demand, Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet now attempts an even darker theme than the Aztec mummies, with their appreciation/appropriation of cult auteurs Doris Wishman (Bad Girls Go to Hell, A Night to Dismember) and Jack Hill (Spider Baby, Mondo Keyhole)...as artfully re-mixed by Brutallo, and as part of this season’s Trash thread. Local electronic ace Thomas Dimuzio graces out gallery (maybe for the first time ever!) to boast to the world of the wonders of the Buchla synthesizer conceived and produced right here in Berkeley by Don Buchla, another Bay Area arts visionary recently passed. Thomas is teaming up with Oakland optical whiz Lori Varga in their 20-min. A Sudden, Haunting Pulse Beneath the Concrete. Lori’s four projectors mock up a motion picture miasma of beautiful desolation among urban decay. Opening, Tommy Becker continues to pioneer new modes of live-music-video performance, trotting out Stars White in a Blue Field, plus 3 more of his repertoire. Lillian Schwartz’ analog videos serve as stereoscopic interstices between the acts; come early for Sara Bonaventura, 35mm filmstrips and Pocket Monsters. *$9.99
OtherZine Issue #33, Spring 2018
“PINK VS. ORANGE”This issue #33 of OTHERZINE incorporates the DNA of another San Francisco Bay-born radical publication, Bad Subjects. This is its issue #92 too, settled in to occupy some of Other Cinema’s comfy seats here until its own website undergoes reconstruction. We hold hands as the movie unspools.
Viva Pink, standing up against Orange! In the January 2017 Women’s March, Pink Pussy hats asserted female leadership and activism. The 2016 Presidential campaign of pinko (OK, socialist Democrat) Bernie Sanders excited and involved many voters, especially millennials. President Donald Trump, his hair and skin alternating between various shades of orange/lemon yellow/yogurt pink, has galvanized American and global opposition to his policies, his insults, his general demeanor. And as “Orange is the New Black” reminded us, incarceration is always a risk for the disobedient and, perhaps, dissident.
