Ten cities : clubbing in Nairobi, Cairo, Kyiv, Johannesburg, Naples, Berlin, Luanda, Lagos, Bristol, Lisbon : 1960 - March 2020 by Goethe Institut( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A nocturnal journey through local histories of clubbing in Africa and Europe. The image of the DJ dragging his record case through international "non-places" and deejaying in clubs around the globe is a contemporary cliché. But these club scenes have rich, geographically differentiated local histories and cultures. This book expands the focus beyond the North Atlantic clubbing axis of Detroit-Chicago-Manchester-Berlin. It looks at ten club capitals in Africa and Europe, reporting on different scenes in Bristol, Johannesburg, Cairo, Kyiv, Lagos, Lisbon, Launda, Nairobi and Naples. The local music stories, the scenes, the subcultures and their global networks are reconstructed in 21 essays and photo sequences. The tale they tell is one of clubs as laboratories of otherness, in which people can experiment with new ways of being and assert their claim to the city. Ten Cities is a nocturnal, sound-driven journey through ten social and urban stories from 1960 through to the present."

Krieg ist das Ende aller Pläne ; & Woher wir kommen, wohin wir gehen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War is the end of all plans: War is characterized by the fact that it breaches all barriers. In his book, "On War," Carl von Clausewitz describes how war dreams of its own "omnipotence." Actually, it can never be omnipotent because it is full of all the probabilities we find in real life which continually disrupt its almighty power. In the end, it is just those probabilities which devour the power of war itself but which are as ill-suited to put an end to war as a peace agreement"--Container

Liebe macht hellsichtig ; & Die siamesischen Hände( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's said that love is blind. The truth is: love makes you perceptive. Love stories are fundamental stories. In this realm of experience, we can test our own power of judgment. It is possible to judge political matters, which are not similarly open to intimate examination, through our knowledge of love stories."--Container
