The first show I visited on Berlin Fashion Week Autum/Winter 2009/2010 yesterday was without clothes. Berlin based designers Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl made a statement with their Kaviar Gauche show. It is online on Hobnox. More shows will follow.

For this iNterview I went to Berlin's botanic garden to record the questions. Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser from MGMT were so tired from their press day, that I am happy they didn't fall asleep. Furthermore it seems as if the only thing I produce these days are iNterviews. That is not true. I am working on reports about a amateur box fight and more.

It is so simple and therefore so good. The Invisible Rope is one of the oldest pranks in the book, but Dan Podosek and Yuki Palermo are always full of new ideas. They stop cars, bikes, people, and anything else that they feel needs to be slowed down.

"Create something from nothing" is the motto of the protagonists from Beautiful Losers. Featured artists like Barry McGee, Margaret Killgallen, Mike Mills, Shepard Fairey and Harmony Korine emerged from the skateboarding and DIY punk rock movement. Aaron Rose hung out with them since his childhood. His New York based "Alleged Gallery" is the place where their careers kicked off in the nineties. Beautiful Losers is the latest project of curator, artist, musician and cultural entrepreneur Aaron Rose. In the Hobnox iNterview he also talks about the whole “Sell Out” discussion and about his art rock band “The Sads”. If you like Aaron Rose, also check out the report I did last year about Shepard Fairey's solo show in London.

It is so cold and snowy outside, that it is the right time to show the stop-motion animation that Spanish street artist Sam3 made this summer. He played with water and the sun in a deserted swimming pool in Alicante. On his homepage you can also see his latest animation Ouroboros.
