Neue Veranstaltungsreihe zur Lage der Kunst in China
Unter dem Titel „Das Bild hinter dem Bild — zur Lage der Kunst in China”

New Series: “Hidden Images” — on the Situation of Art in China

Opening event on 16 January 2013 with the Director of the Shanghai Biennale Qiu Zhijie, the Director of Arthub Asia, Davide Quadrio and the China expert Tilman Spengler

Under the title “Hidden Images — on the situation of Art in China” the University of the Arts Berlin has invited artists, creatives and intellectuals from the People’s Republic of China to Berlin to participate in a series of events staged in cooperation with Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The year-long series of talks on contemporary art in China is designed to show the many different aspects of the turbulent art scene in this huge country and to place them in a social context.

Together with international experts, protagonists of Chinese contemporary art will participate in a series of discussions, a series of lectures and artists’ workshops, thus giving insight into the rapid developments in China’s most recent art history and enabling in depth engagement with Chinese art. The discussions plan to use a political and poetic approach addressing questions about the social role of the artists as well as the artistic visions that currently move China. What forces drive art in China? What new horizons and modes of thought will our engagement with Chinese art open to us? By alternately looking at Chinese Art from a European and Chinese perspective we gain views from both inside and outside, gradually revealing an unaccustomed picture that can assume many forms — the pictures behind the picture, the hidden images.

UdK Berlin has been committed to developing contacts with China for many years and in 2006 launched a joint Master’s programme in Visual Arts and Design with the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. While knowledge transfer initially operated only in one direction — from Germany to China — the road is now open for a two-way exchange, the appointment of Ai Weiwei as Einstein-Guest Professor at UdK Berlin being an exemplary step in that direction. The series “Hidden Images — on the situation of Art in China”, instigated by Prof. Martin Rennert, President of the Berlin University of the Arts, will add a new dimension to this exchange, bringing many different voices from China’s art scene to Berlin and thus allowing an open encounter and the emergence of new ideas.

The series is curated by the artists and China experts Andreas Schmid and Bignia Wehrli. The opening event will take the form of a discussion between the Chinese artist and Director of this year’s Shanghai Biennale Qiu Zhijie, the Director of Arthub Asia, Shanghai, Davide Quadrio and the author Tilman Spengler from Munich. The discussion will be led by Andreas Schmid und Bignia Wehrli.

Is deniese from eastenders actually dead?

On February 11, 2013, in Jade Store, by admin

Please let me know of any spoilers that let you know the truth is she dead or not? I read that theres a suprise in store for the trumans next week… Is this that deniese is alive or that lucas is found out.

There are no official spoilers because they are trying to make us think that Denise is dead, so the media have been asked not to reveal either way. I think it is almost certain that Denise is still alive and there are reports that Diane Parish has been seen still going to work at the studios,

We did not see what Lucas did to her in the car, we only saw the arm and the feet of the body and only Lucas identified it as Denise. The body in the canal would have been played by a stunt actor, so we shouldn’t pay too much attention to the skin colour, but the lack of rings maybe an intentional clue.

About two weeks ago we saw two short scenes where Lucas was approached by a black prostitute who looked like Denise and he went back to her place. The scene cut with him looking at the cross that she was wearing and we never saw any more. He probably kept her locked up somewhere like he did with Jade, the white girl who he had picked up a couple of weeks before that. After the incident with Denise, he drowned the black prostitute and left her in the canal so that it looked as if it was Denise. The police would think that Denise had killed Owen and now committed suicide. Denise is probably held captive somewhere by Lucas, like Jade was.

Police forensics would have known if the body had been strangled rather than drowned and also be able to accurately determine time of death. So the cause of death had to be drowning and the time of death around the time that he sent the text message from Denise’s phone, which was the day after the struggle with Denise in her car.

 

Where can I found soundtracks for videogames?

On February 9, 2013, in Jade Store, by admin

I know Play Asia is great, but I like to get more west kind of music, like Oblivion, and games such like that. I don’t always want asian game music. European and american is great too. Is there any internet store who sell gamesoundtracks?

You could try downloading some. Just type in the name of the soundtrack such as [Insert Video Game Soundtrack here] and then a bunch of things will come up. The song 1000 words sung by Jade of Sweetbox is a pretty good song. If you cant think of the song you want, go to to Wikipedia and type in the video game, and it will most likely give you a list of songs on the soundtrack, and then just type those in on Limewire or Ares and voila..You’ve got video game songs!

What are the Taoist equivalents to ..?

On February 7, 2013, in Feng Shui Jade, by admin

Hindu puja, which is the Hindu worshiping of deities : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puja_%28Hinduism%29
& to Christian mass : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_%28liturgy%29

I honestly have tried to find this on my own but I haven’t been able to find any specific worship for deities or as a community.
I am NOT trying to have others do my homework, I simply would like real answers from people who know what they are talking about.
Thanks in advance for any help (Y) Links are appreciated as well.

Taoism (also spelled Daoism; see below) refers to a philosophical and religious tradition that has influenced the people of East Asia for more than two millennia. The word 道, Tao (or Dao, depending on the romanization scheme), is often translated as "path" or "way", but with a myriad of nuances in folk religion and Chinese philosophy.

Taoist propriety and ethics emphasize the Three Jewels of the Tao: compassion, moderation, and humility, while Taoist thought generally focuses on nature, the relationship between humanity and the cosmos (天人相应); health and longevity; and wu wei (action through inaction). Harmony with the Universe, or the source thereof (Tao), is the intended result of many Taoist rules and practices.

Reverence for ancestor spirits and immortals is common in popular Taoism. Organized Taoism distinguishes its ritual activity from that of the folk religion, which some professional Taoists (Dàoshi) view as debased. Chinese alchemy (including Neidan), astrology, cuisine, Zen Buddhism, several Chinese martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine, feng shui, and many styles of qigong have been intertwined with Taoism throughout history.

Chinese New year is coming up on the 10th of Feb This year. Even if you don’t celebrate it, it’s still a pretty fun and festive holiday. Here in Australia, we have Floating dragons, lion dances, drums and firecrackers going on all around China Town and the street foods are probably one of highlights that attracts people to go ever year. If you have been to a chinese new year festival in your country, Let me know in the comments what are some of your favourite memories from it. In Previous years I have done a Prosperity fish and a chinese lantern Design which used festive colors like reds and golds. This year I thought I would do something a little different and it came out looking like a China Pattern.
As Always Apply base coat and base color and let it completely dry before moving on. I’ll be using an image from the XL Image Plate C available on my website to do this design. The XL Plates images are quite big as you can see. Which suits really well for longer nails, but you can still make use of it on shorter nails as well. First apply Special Stamping polish over the design, Scraper off excess polish using the scraper, then transfer the image using the stamper, check the image, and scrape off unwanted parts of the design. Then aim and roll it over the nail.
You can use nail polish remover to clean the plate, stamper and scraper between each stamp. Then repeat steps for the remaining nails. Here I tried it on a fake nail to show you how it would look like on a longer nail.
Once all your fingers are stamped. Use a qtip soaked in polish remover to clean around the nail.
Now grab a mint color nail polish and color in the section above the print. Then pick a complimentary color for the bottom area, you can color in using a detail brush for a more precise application.
To add the decorations, apply top coat as adhesive to areas as needed. Then place the decals and press down to secure. Once your done, apply top coat for a lasting finish.

If you like this design please rate and favourite this video. I upload new designs every Thursday, Please subscribe for updates and follow me on instagram for snap shots of my daily life. Happy Chinese New Year!
