Thievery Corporation 2017

Artist: Thievery Corporation
Lead artist: Racquel Jones
Album: The Temple of I & I
Out: 2017
Genre: Dance
Yesterday I saw the Black Power exhibition in  the Tate Modern in London. It shows the art made by black artists in the revolution of the Sixties, King-vs-Black-Panthers-time. From the merchandise I choseI the cd – after I had checked out the playlist. Quite tribal old skool protest songs, Gill Scott Heron being the most elegant.
Compare to the new dance rap Letter To The Editor by Thievery Corporation, a combo best known for their slick sofa surfing tunes in the Nineties.
 They are touring the United States this Fall.

Sanitation

Since I started BLOOW AMSTERDAM it has been no trouble making relevant images. Concentrating on the color blue in daily life cuts a path through the jungle of impressions and associations. This is a contribution from a reader that made me smile, yes, there’s blue everywhere. Once you start looking.

 

Looking at it a bit longer, it made me think of the luxury of a clean toilet. Today, 2.5 billion people live without access to improved sanitation, according to the Water and Sanitation Program.

It’s incredible what influence the access to a toilet has on the development of a child, and the futures of large communities. WSP supports poor people in obtaining affordable, safe, and sustainable access to water and sanitation services. The ultimate goal is to raise them from poverty.

Megaphones

composition with blue

Megaphones a composition with blue by a 10-year old + Fernand Léger – The Railway Crossing, 1919

A composition of magazine paper rolls, done by a 10-yearsold pupil of the local school.

It looks like a modern Léger, a message from a world where media are the new (industrial*) revolution.

* a big theme in Leger’s work.
