Review | ‘Dune’ honours source content with vision and intimacy

Dune Part 1 | Dir: Denis Villeneuve | ★ ★ ★ ★. The world of Dune was conceived by American science fiction writer Frank Herbert in the 1960s. Set in an impossibly distant future on the planet of Arrakis, Herbert’s world is an arid, sandy wasteland whose precious spice (a hallucinogenic opioid that extends life and enhances mental abilities) is protected by enormous sand worms.

How Did Marvel Make White Vision Red Again?

Today, we see how Vision went from the cold, emotionless “White Vision” back to his more standard Red Vision setup again. This is “Never Gonna Be the Same Again,” a feature where I look at how bold, seemingly “permanent” changes were ultimately reversed. This is not a criticism, mind you, as obviously things are always going to eventually return to “normal.” That’s just how superhero comic books work. It’s just fun to see how some of these rather major changes are reversed. This is differentiated from “Abandoned Love,” which is when a new writer comes in and drops the plot of the previous writer. Here, we’re talking about the writer who came up with the idea being the same one who resolved the change. This is also differentiated from “Death is Not the End,” which is about how “dead” characters came back to life, since this is about stuff other than death.

Jonathan Feldschuh’s Visions of a Subatomic World

Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism. Become a Member ». Something like magnetic attraction joins certain descriptions to certain artists. Thus “gestural painter” attaches to Jonathan Feldschuh with automatic ease. How else would you label a painter whose images are the swerving, skidding traces of a wide brush wielded with virtuosic vitality? Feldschuh is a gestural painter, no doubt, and yet this readymade phrase is laden with implications that can lead us astray. Not every geometric abstractionist in the years between the World Wars was a utopian, like Piet Mondrian, nor do brushy bursts of energy always put personality on display, as they do in the early paintings of Joan Mitchell. When Feldschuh sends his brush careening over the surface, he is reaching for something beyond himself.

»Afropa – Visions of a joint future of Africa and Europe« Talk with Heba Y. Amin

Talk with Heba Amin on December 4, 2021 about her art and her installation “Operation Sunken Sea”. The continents of Africa and Europe are connected by a long and often painful history. This has repeatedly given rise to politically shaped visions of the future for a coexistence. Today, the question of a visionary idea to create a positive joint future for the neighbouring continents of Africa and Europe is particularly important. What are the latest visions? Which existed in the past? With the three-part series “Afropa” we want to get to know and discuss current and past visions of the future, and the motivations behind them for Africa and Europe, together with artists and writers.
