Dawn of Humans, Hank Wood & da Hammerheads and Pharmakon will be playing a show in an abandoned print shop recently acquired by MoMA PS1 in Queens as part of MoMA’s Night at the Museum. There’s also gonna be performances and multimedia installations by Emil, Leigha and friends.
The show is free with an RSVP to leigha(at)1to1ny.com, and will cost “a few bux” otherwise. Eugene did this sick flyer, which will be sold as a silkscreened poster at the show. Come out, it’s gonna be weird and fun!

Rudolf Schwarzkogler - 3rd Action, 1965
“Rudolf Schwarzkogler was an Austrian performance artist best known today for photographs depicting his series of closely controlled “Aktionen” featuring such iconography as a dead fish, a dead chicken, bare light bulbs, colored liquids, bound objects, and a man wrapped in gauze. The enduring themes of Schwarzkogler’s works involved experience of pain and mutilation, often in an incongruous clinical context, such as 3rd Action (1965) in which a patient’s head swathed in bandages is being pierced by what appears to be a corkscrew, producing a bloodstain under the bandages. They reflect a message of despair at the disappointments and hurtfulness of the world.”
