Kultur verteidigen! – Verteidigungskultur?

Ein Gedankenexperiment

von @mytreetv

Als heute die Kulturbotschaft vom Nationalrat angenommen wurde, hat sich die Frage aufgedrängt in welchem Verhältnis diese Ausgaben zum Gesamt-Staats-Budget der Schweiz stehen. Hier ein paar Zahlen vom Bundesamt für Statistik aus den Jahren 2005 bis 2013:


“in Mio. Franken zu laufenden Preisen… “

Young-ha Kim: Be an #artist, right now!

Website: Kim Young-ha (English) Website: Kim Young-ha (Korean)

Mein Thema heute ist: “Seid Künstler, jetzt!” Wenn das Thema angesprochen wird, werden die meisten Menschen angespannt und wehren sich dagegen: “Kunst ernährt mich nicht und ich bin gerade zu beschäftigt. Ich muss zur Schule gehen, einen Job bekommen, meine Kinder in den Unterricht schicken…” Sie denken: “Ich bin zu beschäftigt. Ich habe keine Zeit für Kunst.” Es gibt Hunderte von Gründen, warum wir gerade jetzt kein Künstler sein können. Fallen Ihnen nicht auch gerade einer ein?

The Lowline

The Lowline is a plan to use innovative solar technology to illuminate an historic trolley terminal on the Lower East Side of New York City. Our vision is a stunning underground park, providing a beautiful respite and a cultural attraction in one of the world’s most dense, exciting urban environments.

The Technology

Designed by James Ramsey of Raad Studio, the proposed solar technology involves the creation of a “remote skylight.” In this approach, sunlight passes through a glass shield above the parabolic collector, and is reflected and gathered at one focal point, and directed underground. Sunlight is transmitted onto a reflective surface on the distributor dish underground, transmitting that sunlight into the space. This technology would transmit the necessary wavelengths of light to support photosynthesis, enabling plants and trees to grow. During periods of sunlight, electricity would not be necessary to light the space. In September 2012, the Lowline team built a full scale prototype of the technology in an abandoned warehouse in the Lower East Side, for the “Imagining the Lowline” exhibit. The exhibit attracted thousands of visitors, was heavily covered by the press and ultimately served as a proof of concept.
