“The Center for Tactical Magic”
Revolutionary Breakthroughs in Extra-Sensory Perception
Engaged in studies as a magician?s apprentice, a ninja?s disciple,
and a private investigator?s observant shadow, Aaron Gach (co-founder
of the Center for Tactical Magic) will offer a unique look at art,
magic, and activism. The presentation traces a brief history of magic
along with its contemporary applications in politics, advertising,
military, religion, and other cultural arenas. Additionally, several
projects from the Center for Tactical Magic, including the Tactical
Ice Cream Unit, the Cricket-Activated Defense System, and experiments
in radical kite-flying, will serve as examples of creative engagement

Who says we went away???
Inauguration of the old
DSB railroad area in Copenhagen
Accohannoch Indian Tribe has lived in Maryland, USA for 30.000 years.
Now they have bought back 40 acres of their native land.
YNKB visited Accahannoch Chief Laughing Otter Hal earlier this year
and the Chief gave us a spear.
With this spear, signed by the chief, YNKB inaugurated the old railroad
area at Nørrebro Station in Copenhagen.

Hot Summer of Urban Farming
Over the summer, 8 artists from Denmark and abroad have made temporary
works, gardens and plantations in outer Nørrebro. The projects
serve as starting points for exploring informal and temporary uses
of spaces that are undetermined.
Hot summer wants to expand on the social and cultural issues around
gardening and farming in the city and suggest a closer connection
between agriculture and the city. Hot Summer of Urban Farming is curated
and organized by visual artist Nis Rømer in the context of
www.publik.dk - a newly established organization for art in public
