Pressing your face against the photocopier is a classical joke that bored office workers would do to pass time. The soft face tissues get distorted when pressed against the glass, distorting the features and creating comical “self portraits” that would later be passed around the office for amusement. This classical joke gets a more somber expression in Makode Linde’s series ACAB, made in the wake of the highly politicised Gorge Floyd tragedy and subsequent riots that lead to the BLM movement.

 

The title of the work ACAB is a well-known abbreviation of "All Cops Are Bastards", a slogan that first appeared in the 1920s in England but has since been used extensively by dissidents in protests and demonstrations. The ACAB series is another perfect example of Makode Linde’s investigation of black identity, ambiguously mixing humour and horror, nailing the spectator in a state of total confusion.

Bitchney Spearx & Lana Death Ray (performance)

Famous for having Broken The InternetTM with their performance in 2014 and teaching How to Get The Art Career of Your DreamsTM in 2019, Lana Death Ray & Bitchney Spearx are your premiere success stories. Always ready to share new ways of overcoming failure, disregarding reality and staying on trend, their new presentation, “How to seduce Big Data Dom DaddyTM”, custom blends tech terminologies, performance satire and Microsoft Powerpoint in a life changing product launch you can't afford to miss.


Lana Death Ray & Bitchney Spearx is an ongoing performance project created by Cara Lien and
Esben Holk. Through these performance characters, the artists work with desperation, affirmation and satire in projects that often point anti-capitalist fingers at contemporary phenomena while pointing self deprecating fingers at themselves.

Almaty (dj)

With equal parts nostalgia and futurism, earnestness and cheek, Almaty plays rave music for the freaks and romantics. She released breakbeat-focused, highly emotive music on Naive, femme culture, Lobster Theremin, and Strictly Strictly, among others.
