Discovering the Swiss Army

One more acquisition for my new passion: Discovering the Swiss Army.My husband just offered me this old and rare book, magnificently illustrated by original watercolours and pictures as you can see above…


An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or divinity. It is given in fulfilment of a vow (hence the Latin term, short for ex voto suscepto, "from the vow made") or in gratitude or devotion. Ex-votos are placed in a church or chapel where the worshipper seeks grace or wishes to give thanks. Shrines decorated with ex-votos are often the destinations of pilgrimages.

Gay activists beaten and arrested in Russia

From The Guardian

Riot police used violence to break up a gay rights demonstration in Moscow yesterday and arrested several European parliamentarians in what critics say is the latest violation of human rights in Russia.
A group of gay rights activists came under attack from neo-Nazi thugs when they tried to present a petition asking Moscow's mayor, Yuri Luzhkov, to lift a ban on a Gay Pride parade. He has previously dubbed gay rallies "satanic". Witnesses said riot police watched as far-right skinheads chanting "death to homosexuals" beat up several activists.
The police failed to arrest the skinheads but detained several of the Europeans - including the German MP Volker Beck, a member of the Green party, and the radical Italian MEP Marco Capatto. Riot police threw Mr Capatto into a police van. "Why don't you protect us?" he shouted. "It was absolutely shocking," the gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell told the Guardian yesterday. "The police stood there while people knocked me to the ground and kicked me. Four or five neo-Nazis attacked me. The police watched. At a certain point the police then arrested me and let my neo-Nazi attackers walk free."
Religious orthodox protesters and skinheads hurled eggs and stones - injuring Mr Tatchell in the eye. They also attacked Richard Fairbrass, the gay singer from the pop group Right Said Fred.
"When we were in the police van the police taunted us," Mr Tatchell said after his release. "They said, 'Are you a member of the sexual minority?' We said yes. They said, 'We are going to have some fun with you at the police station.' What happened here shows the flawed and failed nature of Russia's transition to democracy. There is no right to protest in Moscow."
The arrest of European parliamentarians is likely to further depress relations between the EU and Russia - which are at a lowpoint after an acrimonious summit this month in the Russian city of Samara. The chairwoman of Germany's Green party, Claudia Roth, yesterday called on the chancellor, Angela Merkel, to raise the issue of rights with President Vladimir Putin at next month's G8 summit.
As a member of the Council of Europe and signatory to the European convention on human rights, Russia is obliged to allow demonstrations. "It has been shown once again today that human rights are systematically abused in Putin's Russia," Ms Roth said.
The activists had tried to deliver a petition signed by 50 MEPs calling on Moscow's mayor to respect freedom of assembly, but 30 of them were arrested and they did not make it to his city hall office. Mr Beck was later released. Three Russian gay rights campaigners were kept in custody and charged with disobeying police.
Neo-Nazi thugs and an orthodox priest attacked the activists when they were freed several hours after their arrest, witnesses said. "This is terrible but I am not scared," a Russian named Alexey said, blood streaming from his face. "This is a pretty scary place, a pretty scary country if you are gay. But we won't give up until they allow us our rights."
Russia decriminalised homosexuality in 1993, but the gay community is still widely reviled. Last year Mr Luzhkov refused to allow a Gay Pride rally to take place.

JONNY QUEST by Hanna-Barbera

Directly from my Imagery JONNY QUEST by Hanna-Barbera (1964) is available on DVD now.

Dr. Benton Quest is a research scientist who is frequently called upon for missions that require his scientific and technical expertise. He is usually accompanied by his son Jonny, his tutor/bodyguard Race Bannon, their bulldog with the distinctive mask-like eye markings named Bandit, and Hadji, an Indian orphan who has special abilities of his own. Together, they investigate mysteries; perform rescues and battle nefarious villains around the world, most notably Dr. Zin.

A new venue


At the entrance to the Hamburger Bahnhof, a former train station that houses Berlin’s national gallery of contemporary art, the first exhibit that catches the eye is a subtle hint of things to come.


Enclosed in a showcase is a simple piece of wood, about one meter in length and tightly wrapped in a thick leather hide. Up until the 19th century, it was a staple piece of medical equipment: In the absence of effective anesthetics, countless people dug their teeth into this contraption to avoid biting their own tongue off during painful surgical procedures.


The exhibition PAIN explores the manifold depictions and expressions of pain: in an early modern painting of the Crucifixion, the medical preparation of a gouty hand, a video installation of mourners, the flickering electrical impulses of a nerve cell, a cry. It examines pain’s ability to create community, as well as the attempts to observe, analyze, seek or escape it. It shows that pain can be many things at once: subjective and objective, creative and destructive.
The two venues, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin and the Berliner Medizinhistorische Museum der Charité, are both program and challenge. The museums stand for realms of images and things that could not be more disparate. “Pain” is predestined to thematize these expectations themselves, for neither art no science can claim to have the last word here.
The exhibition PAIN draws from all conceivable sources. Combining and confronting artistic works and medical, folk-art, religious and everyday objects, it traces the boundaries between art, medicine and cultural history. The focus is on Western culture. Following a strategy of reduction, the exhibition is not afraid to make leaps in time. It is conceived as a zone of experimentation for new visual and thematic impulses and puts up for negotiation the viewing habits traditionally associated with both museums – a challenge for curators and visitors alike.


Artworks by the following artists and others will be shown: Francis Bacon, Birgit Brenner, Albrecht Dürer, A K Dolven, Julio González, Mathilde ter Heijne, Gary Hill, William Kentridge, Bruce Nauman, Aya Ben Ron, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Mladen Stilinovic, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Sam Taylor-Wood, Mark Wallinger.
Curators: Eugen Blume, Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin; Thomas Schnalke, Medizinhistorisches Museum; Annemarie Hürlimann and Daniel Tyradellis, Praxis für Ausstellungen und Theorie
