Auch du bist ein Schamane

Vision, Seelenkraft, Heilung

Such a delight to see a special performance by the beautiful and great starina of starinas Miss Bibbe Hansen at silent green Kulturquartier. The special one night only event was part of Goldsmiths, University of London Berlin Summer School program. Bibbe was in top form sharing lots of juicy kibbles and bits about growing up in New York City in the late 50s and early 60s. Bibbe was a natural born troublemaker running the wet&wild streets with Janet Kerouac the daughter of beat writer Jack Kerouac. Bibbe also collaborated with her father the Fluxus pioneer Al Hansen. Bibbe spent a lot of time in Warhol's first factory, as one of his youngest superstars at age 13. She starred in the film Prison with Edie Sedgewick.

Bibbe showed some rare photos of her with Warhol and other greats of the period. She shared some footage of a Fluxus recreation of her fathers piano drop with her famous sons pop star Beck and artist Channing.

Bibbe and her father crisscrossed so many different scenes including early punk rock in Los Angeles and the Chicano art collective ASCO. Bibbe’s younger husb Sean Carrillo was helping her with this presentation. Sean was part of the second wave of ASCO, which is how they met when she literally stole him from his teenage cradle back in the early 1980s. As an added extra treat Harry Gamboa Jr. one of the founding members of ASCO was in the audience and later at the bar he was buying multiple rounds of drinks for all present so we all got really wasted, and that included Susanne Sachsse & Katya Sander, Vegard Vinge & Ida Mueller, Egyptian choreographer Adham Hafez of the Dancing on the Edge Company, Goldsmiths assistant Richard Gabriel, Marcuse Siegelstein and artist Lukas Reiner the son of 95 year old film director and legendary comedy genius Carl Reiner and brother of film director and actor Rob Reiner.

The Vaginal Davis doll was even shocked and surprised out of her unholy mind when Bibbe screened never before seen footage from the very first gig of their punk rock art band black fag. Bibbe played rhythm guitar in male drag in black fag. The band was formed as a joke on her rock star son Beck.

A Black Flag cover band led by Chris of Pansy Division stole the black fag name years later. The original black fag featured songs written by Bibbe, Ms. Davis and Ruebencito of the Chicano groove outfit Boca De Sandia that featured the cousin of Mazzy Star lead singer Hope Sandoval.


Rising Stars, Falling Stars-Sweet 16mm,Never Been Kissed was way beyond packed as everyone in Berlina seemed to converge on the kupulla of the silent green Kulturquartier to celebrate the birth of fearless leader of CHEAP kollektiv and renown multi talented beauty Susanne Sachsse. Some people confessed to having never been to silent green which is understandable as its Berlin’s newest art institution. This special edition of RSFS not only paid tribute to the great La Sachsse, but was in cooperation with Goldsmiths, University of London Berlin Summer School that was facilitated by Frau Sachsse and artist/filmmaker Katya Sander.

The theme of Goldsmiths’ Berlin Summer School was Stealing Together and no one pilfers better then Ms. Vaginal Davis and her partner in grime Daniel Hendrickson the Jewish Muzlim for baby Christ Jesus.

The film they stole from the Arsenal Institute fur film und Videokunst’s archive
was a ruddy faded 16mm collector’s copy of openly closeted director George Cukor’s 1960 musical comedy film Let’s Make Love. Color Me Red, abounded with Marilyn Monroe, Yves Montand, Tony Randall, Frankie Vaughan with cameos by Milton Berle, Bing Crosby and Gene Kelly. The reels got mixed up and this mainstream movie turned a bit experimental for a New York secunda. Was that by accident or designed? You’ll never know, and I'll never tell.

Caught giving testimonials by radiant Arsenal Empress Stefanie Schulte Strathaus:

Nanna Heidenreich, Marc Siegel, journalista Manuel Schubert aka Vicki Baum of Die Taz and Berlin trans legend and Tatort star Zazie De Paris who was mistaken for Romy Haag by writer Phillip Meinert. Maybe Romy was in attendance, there were so many people floating about.

Film archivist Mojisola Adebayo, performance and theater artist Wanda and her lovely Irene, Macho man artiste extroidinaire Del LaGrace Volcano of Londre via Californication and Sweden who once collaborated with Mojisola on a project in the Artic circle.
