In Remembrance of Paul McCarthy’s giant Butt Plug Tree It’s been taken down - deflated over night by individuals who deserve to be pitied. Nate Freeman of the New York Observer rightly concluded a few days ago referring to the historically established hunger of the Grande Nation for extreme sex practices: ‘And there we have it! Parisians, stop complaining about butt plugs. You know you love this stuff.’ Stabbing the balloon is simply a vulgar display of intellectual poverty.

Basel looks good - Dan Solbach, Grafiker The founding member of the now-closed New Jerseyy exhibition space in Basel and initiator of Used Future, a fanzine publishing venture he set up with artist and collaborator Tobias Madison, has over the years established an impressive style of raw simplicity that often seems to reflect the ad-hoc / temporary nature of the illustrated projects. Another beautiful work by Solbach is the Wandering Magazine, a project that came to life in co-operation with the editors / writers Tenzing Barshee & Pippin Wigglesworth.Let’s see what’s next…http://www.dansolbach.ch

Aoto Oouchi by Benoit Palop for the Creators ProjectI create digital objects inspired by fetishized aesthetics within pop culture, and combine them with a certain sense of reality and seed them back into social sites. My work for Panther follows the same concept, but focuses more on a common idea for white spaces. The illusion of value by size and material in big architectural places we know from IRL art shows.

Last Days — Beni BischofThe outdoor exhibition of Beni Bischof (1976) located just behind or rather next to the station Stadelhofen in Zürich is coming to an end. Bischo’s mounted graphs reflect the life of an artist (not a particular one), they are bold, bitter and at times even funny. But why don’t you go and see for yourself? Huh.http://tableauzurich.orghttp://www.benibischof.ch
