An evening of casual conversations organized
by Robert Okuda Fitzpatrick at Archive Kabinett.
Dieffenbachstrasse 31. 10967 Kreuzberg-Berlin
Starts at 7pm
Simon Denny will screen an episode from the hit ‘90s sitcom, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Episode’ – the content of which was used for a recent body of work by Denny. In this episode the main character, played by Will Smith, has an idea to publish a photo book of Bel Air celebrity mansions to impress his girlfriend, that although intended for book publication, never makes into page form. The screening will be followed by a light conversation between the artist, Nicolas Ceccaldi (a contributor to Denny’s recent publication ‘Video Aquarium Broadcast’), and musician, Dan Bodan, who will discuss issues concerning the distribution of online image, text, media and knowledge content.
Jean-Michel Wicker, founder and editor of Le Edizioni Della China, will present new and recent artist’s fanzines and publications. Founded in 2006 in Nice under the name Le Edizioni Della Luna, the publishing house has been based in Berlin since 2009, and publishes irregular and random editions of fanzines, posters, cards, maps and xeroxes.
Karl Holmqvist will present a collection of new cds and vinyls, artist’s books and copy publications to look at, talk about, listen to, trade, sell and maybe even give away.

It is divided into three parts: the first is a prologue, explaining how a swamp is created; the central part tells the stories of twenty disappeared individuals, characters such as Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who was lost in sea in 1975; and an epilogue describing the change in the surrounding landscape of the swamp, which doesn’t quite look
