Tyger Mandingo Dompteure

Dystopia 14 Dementia 14 Documenta 14
The Vagimule doll in sparkling Kassel part of Parliament of Bods. Who sportfucked whom?
Parliamentary Decongestion. Who dropped kicked whom? Smoldering Brazilians, Africans, Bolivians, Turks, Greek aktiv and passiv on demand.
Art shtars like the vivacious Mexican Whitney Biennial juicycon Raul de Nieves, the delightfully insightful Franko“Bifo” Berardi with questions on the double-headed impotent hosemonstar that is destroying the planet through its mathmatical,digital, and financial gobblygook.
So crushed out am I on tall, stately, handsome theorist and public programs curator Paul B. Preciado. Senor Preciado assembled a very tight rock steady crew that included the lovely Viktor Neumann, Goddessa Carlota Gomez, interns Katja, Clara and beauty boi Cilian.
Everyones tia, tante bruder was giving the hairy eyeball to bearded, muscular giant Zucker the senior tech and sound engineer for the congress. I for one was kept in a dry fidgitty titten state of constantly mentally undressing humpy Zucker.
Mr. Paul B. surrounded by the crème de la crème of art consigliere like Bolivian/German lovesexy dreamboat Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz, pretty Nelli Kambouri, stylish Tatiana Roque, and the divine eleganza and smarts that is Missy Magazines Margarita Tsomou and her glamorous Ipanema lover Miss Thais.

Thank god for the mighty Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, the documenta 14 curator-at-large who is the founder and artistic director of SAVVY Contemporary that is housed at the silent green KulturQuartier in Berlin Wedding. Bonaventure made the congress ooze excitement with the African diaspora of young fresh faces.

How Does It Feel To Be A Problem? Is the perfect question to ask the tired myopic art world. Documenta 14 in Kassel would have been very dull indeed without the contributions of the African contingent.
South African kollektiv !Qhiya featuring the ravishing and brilliant SiSiPho Ngodwana & Thuli Gamedze, Lerato Shadi who lives in Berlin now and warmed my foolish heart during her poetic cantata of historically erased black women Zora Neal Hurston, Dinah Was, Dorothy Dandridge, Marion Anderson, Lorraine Hansberry, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and the great Ethel Waters.
The dulcimet voice of Afro/Portuguesa Grada Kilomba who is also the author of Plantation Memories: Episodes of Everyday Racism which I must possess ASAP.
Other highlights was The Sword of Ali aka: Zulfukar Cetin’s Taking Control of One’s Own Body: Refugee Sex Workers and Moralizing the Sex of Others, that he presented with CHEAP kollektiv’s own JewishMuzlim Daniel “Haji” Hendrickson.

Calling the art world and documenta out on its excrement was the radiant akshunist Maria Galindo with her Manifesto on How to Deal with the Feminist Insurrection. Throughtout the Congress Maria was in full testify mode and wasn’t afraid to address the super elefantes in the room to the chagrin of documenta artistic director company bb-boy Adam Szymczyk and Chilly Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar. As Fassbinder star Volker Spengler would say, “Well meaning white liberals are just Nazi’s without the spine.”
My CHEAP kollektiv art daughter Salome Gersh stayed with Maria and her anarcho feminist group Mujeres Creando when she was touring South America a few years ago.
Bringing humour to the forefront like a high art Margaret Cho was the hilarious Taocheng Wang and her gossip weapons of mass destruction. If Slander is a Zombie, the Gossip is a Vampire; and When Zombie and Vampire Bites on the same body, then does their rumours become histories? Geniustrata!
One must never forget that Kassel is the place where Halit Yozgat was murdered on April 6, 2006 by the NSU(National Socialist Underground). The Society of Friends of Halit and Initiative 6 headlined the Saturday program Aliances Between Athens and Kassel Antifascist Movements. Special thanks to Azse Gulec, Natascha Sadr Haghighian and the others responsible for this very moving, substantive series of presentations.
Empress Stefanie Schulte Strathaus hosted a lovely going away cocktail party for famed Nigerian film director Didi Cheeka who was doing an archivist-in-residence at the Arsenal for the past six months. Didi will be back at the Arsenal next year for part 2.
All of the CHEAPIES of Kollektiv CHEAP were back in full throttle action for CHEAP Funk on Rebooty FM with special guest star Zufukar Chetin the Sword of Ali. To hear the radio broadcast go to:
