  • Geometries of Sovereignty: Minimal Republics is an interesting and wonderfully titled project by artist Rubén Martín de Lucas. As Sophie Wright explains in a feature for LensCulture, each “republic” follows the same set of basic instructions: “appropriate 100 square metres of space, outline a border, and inhabit it for no more than 24 hours. From parking lots to empty agricultural crops, anonymous segments of land are transformed by these actions into what the artist describes as ‘ephemeral micro-states.’”
  • FANGS: Vamp is three hundred years old but in all that time, she has never met her match. This all changes one night in a bar when she meets a charming werewolf. FANGS chronicles the humor, sweetness, and awkwardness of meeting someone perfectly suited to you but also vastly different.
  • 80 Jahre Tom & Jerry, hier der allererste Cartoon Puss gets the Boot, damals noch als Jasper und Jinx.

    The duo was dreamt up from a place of desperation. MGM’s animation department, where creators Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera worked, had struggled to emulate the success of other studios who had hit characters like Porky Pig and Mickey Mouse.

    Out of boredom, the animators, both aged under 30, began thinking up their own ideas. Barbera said he loved the simple concept of a cat and mouse cartoon, with conflict and chase, even though it had been done countless times before.

    Puss gets the Boot was the first they released, in 1940. The debut was a hit and won the studio an Oscar nomination for best animated short. Despite their work, the animators were not credited.

    Managers initially told them not to put all their eggs in one basket. A change of heart came only when a letter arrived from an influential industry figure in Texas asking when she would see another one of those “wonderful cat and mouse cartoons”.

    Jasper and Jinx, as they were first known, became Tom and Jerry.

  • Scientists Chronicle the Shifting Colors of a Comet’s ‘Seasons’: The Rosetta mission found a regular pattern of varying red and blue hues on the comet as it passed near to and then away from the sun.
  • Gute Dekonstruktion des neoliberalen Konkurrenz-Paradigmas basierend auf Michael Tomasellos Arbeiten zum „ultrakooperativem Primaten“.
