Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'



Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'


The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.


The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Mudam Luxembourg presents six exhibitions illustrating the diversity of approaches and media that go to make up contemporary art.

Attila Csörgö leads us into a universe of scientific exploration, providing a comprehensive overview of his career, beginning from the early 1990s and reaching international acclaim in the form of major art exhibitions and awards. Empirical folding of great mathematical complexity, hypnotic plays of light resting on indecipherable mechanical movements, and other inventions that combine fantasy with curiosity about extremely varied physical and mathematical phenomena. The exhibition at Mudam is the second issue of an international series that started at Ludwig Museum—Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest in 2009, the next venue being the Hamburger Kunsthalle—Galerie der Gegenwart in 2011.

The exhibition by Daniel Buren is the fruit of a joint invitation to the artist from Mudam and Centre Pompidou-Metz to create a specific installation in relation to their respective spaces. As it is often the case with his work, the installation the artist has conceived for Mudam is concerned with "frames"—be they aesthetic, architectural or institutional—which condition any exhibited art. Through his installation, Daniel Buren addresses the most symbolic "frame" of the museum, namely the architecture of Ieoh Ming Pei, while subverting, not without a certain irony, the invitation to exhibit in the central space of the Grand Hall, which itself sums up Pei's architectural discourse.

The exhibition which Nina Beier and Marie Lund have devised for Mudam draws its inspiration from a fictional text written by the art critic Francesco Pedraglio, following the artists' invitation to make a subjective reading of their previous show, held at De Vleeshal in Middelburg, the Netherlands. Brought together under the shared title The Object Lessons, the two exhibitions and the narrative that links them together are less the result of the implementation of a pre-ordained plan than the development of something akin to a sequence of echoes: an exhibition giving rise to a fictional text, itself engendering an exhibition.

The exhibition Just Love me - Regard sur une collection privée (A look at a private collection) is the first edition of a series of future exhibitions showing the diversity of approaches chosen in collecting contemporary art, in and out of Luxembourg. For the first part of this series, Mudam thought of a couple of collectors who, a number of years ago, started to gather artworks by well-known, even historic, artists such as Donald Judd and Andy Warhol, and rubbing shoulders with emerging talent.

The exhibition Illogical thoughts… is articulated around sound installations commissioned by Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP), in collaboration with Mudam, from Antoine Defoort, Marcelline Delbecq, Pierre-Yves Macé, three artists which, in their different domains—performance, visual arts and musical composition—are interested in speech and the illogical trains of thought that it can generate. The exhibition is presented as part of the Diagonales project, initiated by the CNAP in collaboration with around twenty venues in France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Finally, Mudam Collection. Premier étage - Second Degré explores a spirit that, since Marcel Duchamp, continues to infuse contemporary artistic creation. The practices of misappropriation and irony serve the critical spirit of artists like Sam Baron, Claude Closky, Tony Cragg, Jürgen Drescher, General Idea, John Giorno, João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva, Martin Margiela, Albert Oehlen, Heimo Zobernig... and give them the distance and the filters necessary to bring a sense of play to the serious business of their quest.
