Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

When the Arab Spring erupted in 2011, the post-modern era of skepticism and pessimism in relation to positive, progressive political change was broken, albeit momentarily. The sight of thousands of people on the streets, demonstrating against corrupt politicians and their...

In an age where Satnav offers a guiding light through places unknown, and Google Street View reduces us all to that tiny orange man, it’s easy to assume that the thrills of individual exploration have been lost to a universalised...

Prometheus unwound

Prometheus unwound

Prometheus has finally landed in the UK, highly anticipated not just because of the thought of Ridley Scott returning to the Alien universe, but also thanks to its aggressive and ubiquitous viral campaign. It was originally touted as a sequel to Scott’s 1979 first instalment of the franchise, but that...
Life: Revisited

Life: Revisited

The title of David Eagleman’s book Sum, recently adapted by Wayne McGregor and Max Richter as an opera at the Royal Opera House, is no accident. Eagleman deliberately chose the term for three reasons: it is Latin for ‘I am’; it relates to the Latin term for a peak, or...

Bear in Heaven – Hoxton

Bear in Heaven’s third album, I Love You, It’s Cool, released in April 2012 proved to be on first listen as non-committal and aloof as its title suggested. During their show at Hoxton Square Bar and Grill, most of Bear in Heaven’s members generally maintained this image of aloofness whilst...

Children of the Revolution: The Keys to Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson’s long-awaited new film, offers us an uncommonly expansive view of a New England island community, but it begins in a country house that is isolated and cut-off from the outside world in every sense. Anderson’s camera, determinedly stocked with Super 16mm film in a pervasively digital...

Blackbird Blackbird – at London’s Lexington

Blackbird Blackbird (formerly known as Bye Bye Blackbird) is the stage moniker of San Francisco’s Mikey Maramag. Right now, he is arguably one of the leading figureheads amongst a scene of ethereal, dreamlike and reverb laden electro-pop. Last Thursday Maramag headed to London’s Lexington during a tour of small venue...

The former...
Burma on an irreversible path towards democracy

Burma on an irreversible path towards democracy

As has been more than amply evidenced in recent months and years, the final days of oppressive, regimes are very often ugly, uncertain, and deadly. An unwillingness to change with the times is characteristic of tyrannical regimes, whose leaders’ fondest fantasies seem to be the eternal prolongation of their final...
Reimagining Naïvety - Metropolis and 21st century politics

Reimagining Naïvety – Metropolis and 21st century politics

Utopias and dystopias of the past tell us something about the present: they reveal hopes and fears surrounding decisions that led to the way things are now. Fritz Lang’s Metropolis [1927] is a socialist fable of this kind. It unfolds the story of a mechanical city that has forgotten its...
