the fall and rise of ...

Antxon Amorrortu. This ironic comic tells us the story of an artist fan of Txomin Badiola. It brings to mind different personalities from the world of art whether we like it or not. Mary Cuesta has used a very Álvarez Rabo type of style to tells us the most important things about this almost real Barcelona-based Basque artist. You can get your copy from Iguapop gallery at wwwiguapop.net or directly from the artist herself at

aitor ortiz

We are going to have the chance to enjoy this photographer from Bilbao's work in the Koldo Mitxelena culture centre exhibition hall. His work has always been connected with architecture, and it was no surprise 14 years ago when the Guggenheim museum chose him to photograph the building process. Now we have the chance to see his latest work in Donostia.

nontzefilmak 2009

The nontzefilm and nontzeflash festivals have joint forces. To us it seems like a good idea to bring these two festivals together as they will be able to break down the frontiers between format and genre. The objective is to enjoy creativity and audio-visuals in a completely free way. Free and talented work from all over the world reached the last festival. You have until one o'clock on the 28th of February (Bilbao time) to present your work. You can find the conditions and full instructions at: www.nontzeberri.com/nontzefilmak

surveillance

We have all seen a lot of very special computer screen-protectors. But nothing like this one until now. It is connected to hundreds of surveillance cameras all over the world via the Internet. And now, if you get one of them and if you can use a screensaver on your computer screen, you can have the camera lives and right in front of you.

shiroi necko must die!

This is what the designers of rebel 8 studio say when they see lots of their work stolen and put on this Japanese T-shirt company's products. These pirates from the Land of the Rising Sun have extended their catalogue by stealing work from different sources. But they are not too bright. When they took work from artists such as Coop and Bansky they got caught.

The main character in their latest play is Urtain, the polemic boxer known as the Tiger of Zestoa. You can see it at Victoria Eugenia theatre on the 14th and 15th of March
