As a good precarious worker I am these days , working in a techno club in Thessaloniki , (people who know me personally they already have heard that) , its hard for me to write long articles or start blogging my news apart from my contribution to the shituationist institute blog of course. But today I must say that , a post I ‘ve read by the anti german blog motivated me to write a short update of what Im thinking these days. It’s the first time I read somewhere online besides us , someone to use the term shituationism . As you possibly imagine directly came to my mind what shituationism represents though?.
Actually we found the idea of shituationist institute totally exhausted and drunk/wasted on a ferry boat going to rest in a beautiful island of north Aegean sea.
Two years ago when we started the shituationist blog we never expected a such a nice progress. As far as I can remember , back to the past , two years ago when we started reflecting about this project , our purpose was to start a stylish nice blog with a sophisticated ironic style(because we are awesome:p) , concerning electronic music , contemporary subcultures and beyond. I think this is done already together with the start of new connections with djs , artists , people who reflecting on various topic from many European cities such as London , Athens , Berlin , Thessaloniki and so on. This diversity definitely give us the advantage to play in a lot of fields with a huge diversity of people and activities. More than ever I have the impression that a(non formal) network of nice people its possible with main principles to spread the idea of better together than staying in marginality , also better together because sharing skills and thoughts is sexy:D.
Obviously Im not trying to write a manifesto about “shit”uationism even not thought displacing , not respecting “autonomy” of people. Im only saying that internet as well as real life gave to this idea (si) a nice approach and perhaps we should move forward with this. Making art , writing a bit of theory which means reflecting on various topics , putting more efforts to the direction of making something deeper than posting dj sets in a weekly basis or whatever else we do. I think its super vital for this process to include fresh dynamics with fresh ideas and cool art? .. As a conclusion perhaps we could keep that : moving forward with many nice activities in real life, establishing , maintaining contacts with all of these nice people we got know these 2 years.. search for more nice people to contribute? writing a roll call? who knows .. perhaps starting a brief discussion concerning this topic it helps.
