Remembering Elizabeth Catlett

In honor of artist Elizabeth Catlett’s birth month, The Bronx Museum of the Arts will display Catlett’s Elvira in the North Wing Lobby throughout April. We welcome you to view this work and honor Catlett's legacy as an African-American sculptor and printmaker.


In 2012, the Bronx Museum featured the artist's work in the exhibition Stargazers: Elizabeth Catlett in Conversation with 21 Contemporary Artists. Thanks to a major grant from the Ford Foundation, Elvira was later purchased for the Museum’s permanent collection. For more information on Elizabeth Catlett’s life and work please visit elizabethcatlett.net.

1040 Lounge: Portadores

Portadores is a collaborative project between artist Almudena Lobera and architect Isabel Martínez Abascal, exploring the medium of living bodies. The project consists of drawings by Almudena Lobera that are shown and tattooed onto the skin of volunteers by Isabel Martínez Abascal, and then are destroyed so that the only remaining and existing works are those on the skin. The execution of the dibuajes (drawings-tattoos) requires the collaboration of the viewer, who becomes an integral part of the work. This project aims to call into question the material form of the artwork and to explore social and relational notions.

The Bronx Museum of the Arts will host the performance of Portadores, together with an artist talk and videos from previous presentations of the piece.

Applications are now being accepted to be portador #15! For details click here. Read more >
Free admission and bar (donations suggested)

Massachusetts Glass Steagall Action

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
Seems to be a lot of action for revival of
Glass Steagall act of 1933 from the Massachusetts flank.
Boston, your my home.... Love that dirty water, by the River Charles....

Moving the leverage ratio won't change anything, says Dr. Gerrald Epstein — only Glass Steagall will change the fact that today's banks do nothing for the real economy.
Epstein, co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) and a member of the anti-free-market Center for Popular Economics, both at Amherst College in Massachusetts, was interviewed on the Real News Network by Sharmini Peries from Baltimore, on the recent decision by U.S. regulators to raise the reserve requirement for banks from 3% to 5%. Epstein said this is meaningless, since banks didn't even keep to the 3% leverage ratio, using off-balance-sheet assets, "risk-weighted asset valuations" (which allows so-called low-risk assets to be valued at less than face value, but, of course, "using false models that would show that the assets were really safer than they were"), and exotic derivatives, to make it appear that "they had almost no capital to speak of in the lead-up to the crisis."
Asked what he recommended, he said to end the use of risk-weighted assets and off-balance-sheet assets, lift the reserve ratio to 10% (Brown Vitter), and implement Glass-Stegall:
"Elizabeth Warren and others have proposed a reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act,"
he said.
"That is, a separation of the very risky speculative kind of banking from more boring banking that is actually serving the needs of the real economy. So implementing something like that would also help, because, after all, we're not just looking at the risk that the taxpayers are going to have to bail out the banks, as important as that is. We're also talking about what it is the banks are actually doing to help the economy."
Epstein adds:
"We really can't rely anymore on these big Wall Street banks, if we ever did rely on them, because they simply don't have an interest in supporting the people in the real economy."
Yesterday, Elizabeth Warren responded to an intervention by LaRouche PAC organizers in Boston by pledging to go all out for Glass-Steagall after the current Congressional break.

What's UP with the EU

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
The European Union (EU) is a controlled entity of the royal families headed by the British and Dutch royal families. It is the slave of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the post-Glass Steagall Act speculative system.

That is why Ukraine will continue to collapse and blow up. The point is not just Russian speakers rebelling against the West and NATO. The point is NATO and the EU mean economic collapse and real estate grabs just like in Spain and Greece. The bankers, the real estate grabbers want their loot, the people can run away or die. That is the story, all the way to the threat of destabilization and world war.

The rain in Spain,
Now falls on the Ukraine.

Plus the EU is the homeland of British Empire greenie games starting with their windmills and solar power ripoffs. It is too expensive for modern civilization. The greenies aim to shut down the 15 nuclear plants in the Ukraine and go back to the stone age.

british Banker Tricks

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
the British bankers and Wall St guys have a trick, get into a war confrontation at Russia deliberately as the economy collapses. Isn't that cute??? So what if we have to back a bunch of Nazis in the Ukraine. We will then be able to say it is all the fault of the Russians.

But if there is an actual nuclear war exchange, will we live to tell???

Russia is Crashing the economy

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
The headlines soon will be that the Russians are Crashing the US Economy. Already the NY Times complains that Russians are afraid to buy prime NYC real estate because of sanctions and counter-sanctions. What's an oligarch to do?

Also, if Europe, particularly Germany, stops buying Russian gas, an immediate banking collapse will happen. It is just too big

Zeus vs Prometheus and the War Danger

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
We have the oligarchy, esp. the British, playing the usual war games. Look at this Ukraine stuff. The West ran in $5 billion of propaganda, using Nazi-collaborator organizations out of Lviv to run a coup in Kyiv. Then they bitch when the Russians strike back and occupy Crimea.

This Saturday, we will hear Part II of a class series by Denise H. on the 3000 year history of the Judeo-Christian principle vs. the evil of Oligarchism. Part II will focus on: Who were the teacher's of Jesus Christ; and, why was he the most dangerous Man in the Roman Empire

Science before Mathematics

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:
Science in the sense of the real world of physics, biology, chemistry is superior to mathematics. So come down from the British clouds of Bertrand Russell, a most evil man, to get to reality. More from Lar:::

LAROUCHE: So, the question is, is what is the meaning of truth? What is truth? And truth is how does the universe behave? Well, how's it behave, does it get better or worse? If it's better, what's the principle of its being better

NATO Dope Business

Real Crash- Looking at the Financial System and the War Drive:  
the bankrupt Western economy joins in backing drugs from Afghanistan, as an attack on Europe and Asia. Like we said, the British Queen runs dope. This is bad news, unless you see more heroin and other drugs as a form of good business and economic expansion. Sure, the banks need the money, but is that they way you want to do it??? Instead, impeach the dope pusher Obama----- and it seems that Ukraine was growing drugs in Crimea.....
