Culture Wars: Launch issue #56 & Otto Muehl films
Join us to celebrate Spike’s 56th issue:
Along with pieces on Christoph Schlingensief, Sandra Mujinga, Marianna Simnett, new American rappers, and the influence of the right on culture across Europe, Spike #56 features an essay by Alison Gingeras and Jamieson Webster on the failed experiment of Otto Muehl’s commune and what it can tell us about our own time.
Accompanying the issue launch, Berlin-based artist Theo Altenberg, who lived in the commune, will present rarely seen short films from the 60s by Otto Muehl, as well as excerpts from „Back to Fucking Cambridge“, a film about turn-of-the-century Vienna made in the commune in 1987.
Come by, pick up a magazine, and join us for conversation and drinks. We look forward to seeing you!
