“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 within society.

Who says we went away???
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 spaces and media
