Influenced by Paul Fusco’s images of the children of Chernobyl, Chernokids was to show “resilience; the way people bounce back after a trauma,” This is demented on a whole new level. Like a car crash & you can’t look away. Best enjoyed in full screen!

March 2011, TASCHEN released one the most highly-anticipated books of the year, a monograph simply titled, Basquiat…
From the streets of New York to the walls of its most prominent galleries, young graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) was catapulted to international fame in his early 20s and died of a drug-overdose at 27. The subject of a feature film by fellow artist Julian Schnabel, Basquiat is one of the most admired artists to emerge from the 1980s art boom. This book explores his short but prolific career.
Check out the trailer of Radiant Child, the newest film on Basquiat.
This is kind of WTF art that the concepts and execution are so strong you just have to say “Wow” to it. Kumi Yamashita makes shadow art, and not just any shadow art, but creating silhouettes by arranging simple objects and lighting to produce these unique pieces.

“Though there’s no violence and no extreme nudity in this video, it was the most shocking of the year for me. Part of it is the stark background, and the blank faces of the orgy’s participants. But mostly it’s because of the connected bodies. On one hand it looks something like The Human Centipede. But it also makes me think of Genesis P-Orridge’s Pandrogeny Project” -Stereogum
