What would you do if you were a graffiti obsessed, documentary making French immigrant living in L.A.? There are probably a hundred answers, but we’ll give you one. Thierry Guetta is the person we’re referring to, and his one goal was to find and film world famous graffiti artist Banksy. But once he did, the tables were turned and Banksy became the documentary maker. The outcome of this documentary is called ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ and is premiering in Holland September 30th. Besides the works of Banksy, the film shows works of other famous graffiti artists as well.

When in China, you’ll probably find yourself looking at a lot of posters and billboards stating you’re in the perfect country. But hell you’re not. Photographer Aram Tanis wanted to show us the other side of China by making the book ‘Blowing Smoke and Seahorses’. To really portrait this other side of China, he took pictures at animal fares, industrial area’s and a shelter for children whose parents are in jail. The book is now on sale at Athenaeum Bookhandel and Nijhof&Lee Amsterdam. The Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven has an exposition starting 16-10-2010 until 30-01-2010. But there will also be expositions in Berlin, Paris, Istanbul, Breda and of course Beijing. For more info check: »»» » » »


Fashion: Well, its October and this means ADE is coming up for a lot of us. Five days of not coming home to sleep. So make sure to jump into an outfit that’s comfortable and looks nice as well. We recommend Chillp-wear by Roos Neeter, check out her collections on or go to Odd at Spui in Amsterdam to buy these partyproof clothes.

Art: Stedelijk Museum (half) open? Well, we’ve been going to the Appel for years now and must say, the Stedelijk Museum has been slowly slipping our minds lately. Since 1975 the Appel has functioned as a site for the research and presentation of contemporary visual art through exhibitions, publications and discursive events, as they say themselves on their site But we recommend skipping the internet surfing and get your ass over to the Ferdinand Bolstraat.

Music: Enough about dance music! What’s next? Chilling at home with some soothing classical music in the background. But you can also visit the rehearsals of orchestra’s performing at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. Every Wednesday at 12.30 you’re free to come and check this out. Did we already mention it’s for free? »» colofon
