Episode 51: We Must Not Think Bad Thoughts
Artipoeus explores technology, punk rock and Impressionism at American artist Austin Lee’s Tomato Can at Peres Projects in Berlin. Punks were left with the aftermath of the Baby Boomers, who sold out to make affordable blue jeans or unaffordable ice cream and were now at home popping out Generation X babies. Punks were the generation squeezed in between, kicking at the walls and screaming. Now that I put it that way, I’m not so sure the Impressionists were that punk after all. They weren’t protesting the injustice of an unfair system. They were just loud and colorful, trying to stay relevant.
I think… I think that makes them Glam.
Featuring “What You Need” and “Drowning” by Dead Sentries.
