Hasta Siempre - Comandante Che Guevara

1965 Carlos Puebla
filmed by carlos garcia 2012

A esto es lo que le temen los gánster del norte los enemigos de la humanidad.... con 60 años de bloqueo malvado, despiadado y todavía siguen con ese espíritu de amor , de alegría, de humildad y sobre todo con un corazón de oro por que esa hermandad que existen entre ellos la trasmiten a aquellos que visitan la isla. 
"Hasta Siempre, Comandante", or simply "Hasta Siempre", is a Cuban song from 1965 written by Carlos Puebla. The lyrics are an answer to the farewell letter from the revolutionary Che Guevara when he left Cuba to stir up the revolution in the Congo and later Bolivia. Here he would later be imprisoned and executed. The lyrics describe some important moments from the Cuban revolution and describe the revolutionary role of Che Guevara as a commander. The song became an icon after the death of Guevara and many cover versions were made, often by left-wing artists. The title refers to a Guevara motto, "¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!" (Until the victory always).

Miguel Del Morales in Cuba feliz

Directed by Karim Dridi (2000)

Miguel Del Morales, the 76-year-old troubadour who strums and sings his way through Karim Dridi's uplifting film ''Cuba Feliz,'' embodies the wandering minstrel as a man of the people and the repository of an impoverished nation's hard-won emotional wisdom. As he travels from one city to another in his native Cuba, meeting up with local musicians and jamming with them, Mr. Del Morales, who is known as El Gallo (the Rooster) suggests a Latin-American Willie Nelson (without his band), indefatigably making his way along his country's dusty roads. A wiry, weather-beaten figure, El Gallo, clad in a black tank top and sombrero, is first glimpsed smoking a cigarette and gazing over the Havana harbor as a cargo ship slips into port. The song he sings with an impassioned resignation is a lament of the hardship of life, the passing of time and loves lost but not forgotten. Although ''Cuba Feliz'' has the look and sound of a documentary, it's really a loosely constructed musical road movie with a screenplay (by Pascal Letellier and Mr. Dridi) that follows El Gallo from city to city on a national tour undertaken largely on foot. Toting his guitar, he ambles from Havana to Santiago de Cuba, Guantánamo, Camaguey and Trinidad, ending up back in Havana in the same spot from which he started… LINK youtube Cuba feliz

Sita's ordeal by fire

Ramayana, Painted in Kamasan Bali - Date around 1915 
research Dolf Pauw

The story: This is a key episode in the Ramayana story, one of the most frequently depicted scenes in classical Balinese paintings. Rawana, demonic king of Langka, kidnapped the goddess Sita and kept her in captivity. After the fall of Langka and the death of Rawana, goddess Sita was reunited with her husband, Rama. But after such a long absence, Rama doubts her faithfulness. Distressed by Rama’s suspicion and in order to demonstrate her purity, Sita orders Laksamana, Rama’s brother, to prepare a pyre into which she jumps. However she is protected by Agni, the god of fire, and the fire turns into a lotus. The scene: Agni can be seen in the centre of the paintings with Sita at his feet in a lotus floating on a pool of water. Both are enclosed in a golden aureole, which indicates a god. The servant figures, Twalen and Merdah are seated on the ground close to Sita. On the right, at the top of the ramp, from which Sita has jumped, are Trijata, Sita’s companion during her captivity, heavenly priests and monkey spectators. Hanoman, the monkey general, is below the ramp. Rama and Laksamana appear on the left of the tree with several gods above them and monkeys and other animal creatures below. Flowers descend from above, as a manifestation of Sita’s purity and favour with the gods.

Simone Veil

This coin I received on my job this week

Simone Veil maakte van 1974 tot 1979 carrière als minister van Volksgezondheid onder presidenten Jacques Chirac en Raymond Barre en was de eerste vrouw op deze positie. In haar eerste jaar als minister van Volksgezondheid zorgt ze voor betere beschikbaarheid van anticonceptiemiddelen. Een jaar later, in 1975, weet ze legalisatie van abortus in Frankrijk te realiseren. In 2010 werd ze als zesde vrouw in de geschiedenis lid van de Académie française, het instituut van de bevordering van de Franse taal. Als lid ontving zij een ceremonieel zwaard waarin drie kenmerkende teksten waren gegraveerd. Het motto van de Franse Republiek, de Europese Unie en het nummer dat op haar arm was getatoeëerd: 78651.

Simone Veil was born in Nice in 1927 as the daughter of a Jewish architect. In 1944, her entire family was arrested and separated from her father and brother, who did not survive the war. Veil made a career from 1974 to 1979 as Minister of Health under Presidents Jacques Chirac and Raymond Barre and was the first woman in this position. In her first year as Minister of Health, she ensures better availability of contraceptives. A year later, in 1975, she managed to realize the legalization of abortion in France. In 2010 she became the sixth woman in history to become a member of the Académie française, the institute for the promotion of the French language. As a member she received a ceremonial sword in which three distinctive texts were engraved. The motto of the French Republic, the European Union and the number that was tattooed on her arm: 78651. 

Simone Veil est née le 13 juillet 1927 à Nice dans une famille juive non pratiquante. Sous l’occupation elle fait transformer son nom d’origine Jacob grâce à de faux papiers mais se fait malgré tout arrêtée avec sa famille par la Gestapo en 1944. Elle est alors transférée dans différents camps dont Auschwitz et Bergen-Belsen. Elle et ses deux sœurs sont les seules survivantes. Elle meurt finalement le 30 juin 2017 à l'âge de 89 ans. Après la guerre, elle entame des études de Droit et entre dans la Magistrature. En 1974, elle entre dans le gouvernement de Jacques Chirac sous la présidence de Valéry Giscard d’Estaing en tant que ministre de la Santé jusqu’en 1979. C’est à elle que l’on doit la loi sur l’interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG), dépénalisant l’avortement. Votée en 1974, elle entre en vigueur en 1975. Simone Veil a fait face alors à de nombreuses menaces et intimidations mais ce combat lui a apporté une grande popularité. Son parcours politique continue au Parlement Européen dont elle occupe le poste de Présidente de 1979 à 1982. Elle sera par la suite ministre des Affaires sociales, de la Santé et de la Ville dans le gouvernement d’Edouard Balladur en 1993 puis membre du Conseil Constitutionnel entre 1998 et 2007. En dehors de la vie politique, elle a été également Présidente de la Fondation pour la mémoire de la Shoah et en 2010 Simone Veil entre à la prestigieuse Académie française. Elle est décédée le 30 juin 2017, à l'âge de 89 ans. LINK franceculture

Jerzy Bielski

Turning Point [2015] 
Painting: Pim Piët 
Music: Jerzy Bielski 

In 2008 Bielski decided to become a professional jazz musician and got his BA at Middlesex University in London. However, in the meantime Jerzy managed to develop his passion for experimental, improvised sounds coming out of his Minimoog synth, playing, recording two albums and touring with a quartet Lanza! To divert from his not always straight path even more, he started his numerous attempts of organising the chaos of free improvisation and his own life, by putting it on paper in the form of dots and lines. 

The work Turning Point from 2015 is the first collaboration of painter Pim Piët with the Polish composer Jerzy Bielski (1984). One speaker had to be mounted outside the panel, and this was a new challenge for Piët, not only in its design but also as a challenge to strengthen the relationship with the painting itself. The rotating object, mounted in the panel becomes the intermediate and seems to catch signals, again blurring the sliding scale of the visual plane towards aural space where boundaries become vague. That idea is exactly how the exhibition design and arrangement came to be. The wall is not only the carrier of the work, but it becomes a part of the overall concept to connect separate works with each other in a new manner. A movement of a visual object through space towards sound/noise. It is the viewer’s task to undergo the musical experience. LINK Jerzy Bielski

Plovdiv 2019 (Пловдив 2019)


Over the course of an extended weekend (11-13 January 2019) a series of events will take place at various in- and outdoor spaces across the city. Its peak will be on Saturday, 12 January. The very heart of Plovdiv will welcome the ceremony. The show, combining music, light and dance, will give the key to the whole year ahead and to the basic concept of the European Capital of Culture project, in which the citizens themselves are not only audiences and actors, but also creators of events. More than 1500 participants from Bulgaria and abroad will recreate on the open stage a large and colorful metaphor of all the main themes of the programme ‘Plovdiv 2019’ and their relationships under the motto ‘Together’. 

В рамките на дългия уикенд през януари (11-13 януари 2019 г.) са планирани серия от събития в различни пространства, открити и закрити сцени в града, които ще имат своята кулминация в съботната вечер на 12 януари 2019 г. Откриването ще бъде в самото сърце на Пловдив. Спектакълът, съчетаващ музика, светлина и танц, ще даде ключ към цялата предстояща година и към основната концепция на проекта Европейска столица на културата, в която самите граждани са не само публика и участници, но и създатели на събитията. Над 1500 участници от България и чужбина ще пресъздадат на открита сцена мащабна и цветна метафора на всички основни теми от програмата на „Пловдив 2019“ и на тяхното свързване под мотото „Заедно“.

Pieter Martijn

Last year, I was visiting my brother-in-law Pieter. It was in his house for the first time. Pieter told me that he was very impressed by the painter Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci when he was a young boy. His way in life was always haunted by his beloved painter. Thus he began to paint and made his life story in paintings by Leonardo da Vinci. His sons, former wife, close friends and important characters you see in these paintings.The result is impressive!. LINK Via Dolf Pauw
