Arik Brauer 90. Geburtstag am 4. Jänner 2019

Zum Geburtstag möchte ich Arik Brauer meinen herzlichsten Glückwunsch aussprechen.
Seit ich in 2011 wieder in meine Heimatstadt Wien zurückkehrte hatte ich mehrmals die Gelegenhet Arik Brauer zu treffen.

Hier einige Erinnerungsfotos:

Bei dieser Gelegenheit möchte ich meine Leser darauf aufmerksam machen dass seine Tochter Timna Brauer Führungen in seinem Privatmuseum veranstaltet.

Arik Brauer K u n s t s a m m l u n g s – F ü h r u n g e n 2019


Seit über zehn Jahren schon unterhält Prof. Arik Brauer eine Privatsammlung im Untergeschoß seiner Wiener Villa im Cottageviertel. Auf rund 200²m werden seine bedeutendsten Ölgemälde aus den letzten Jahrzehnten, sowie seine aktuellsten Keramikskulpturen präsentiert. Ein Querschnitt aus seinem Lebenswerk, Phantastischer Realismus.
Arik Brauer, der am 04.01.2019 seinen neunzigsten Geburtstag feiert, verbringt seine Tage weiterhin von früh morgens bis in den Abend an den Staffeleien. Wie sein ganzes Künstlerleben hindurch arbeitet er noch heute stets an mehreren Bildern gleichzeitig. Sieht er doch keinen Grund diese Gewohnheit zu ändern.

Die wunderbar realistische Welt des phantastischen Herrn Brauer
1.04.2019

Unglaublich, der großartige Universalkünstler, Vertreter der Wiener Schule des fantastischen Realismus, Liedermacher, Autor, Bühnenbildner und, und, und… Arik Brauer ist 90 Jahre alt!
Zeit für den Rabenhof dieses Wiener Vorstadtkind, das zum Weltbürger geworden ist, entsprechend zu würdigen.
Wer wäre dazu besser geeignet als seine Tochter, die herausragende Schauspielerin, Sängerin und Entertainerin Ruth Brauer-Kvam.
Eine Zeitreise von der Zwischenkriegszeit in Ottakring bis nach Paris im 68er Jahr, von Radfahrten nach Afrika bis zu Nahtoderfahrungen am Neusiedlersee. Geschichten von der Liebe, der Natur und der Politik zeigen das phantastisch-realistische Leben dieses künstlerischen Ausnahmetalents.
Premiere: 4. Jänner 2019
mit: Ruth Brauer-Kvam
Band: Carles Muñoz Camarero, Lukas Knöfler und Milos Todorovski
Buch: Ruth Brauer-Kvam
Regie: Thomas Gratzer
Musikalische Leitung: Kyrre Kvam
Bühne: Arik Brauer

Chronologisch ausgesucht aus meinem Video Archiv:

Die Einwanderung ist das Problem – 11.03.2018 

„Die Einwanderung ist das Problem“: Arik Brauer ist Künstler und Zeitzeuge des Nationalsozialismus. Er sieht heute weniger in Nazi-Liederbüchern eine antisemitische Gefahr, als in der Einwanderung aus dem arabischen Raum.

MASSIVE COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS ON MINDS

•September 23, 2018 • 1 Comment

MASSIVE COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS ON MINDS

Minds appears to be a haven for some copyright violators who scrape images off the internet and post them without attribution, trying to profit from other peoples work.

If you want to know about Copyright and related issues, I operate a website, Visionary Art Gallery, where I dedicated a page to this issue. Also, a link to that page appears in the footer and thus on each and every represented artists page (there are well over 500 artists represented). Check it out here: https://www.vagallery.com/copyright.html

About the specifics

The above image is a painting by MARTINA HOFFMANN,
a friend and fellow artist whom I published in my VISIONARY ART GALLERY
This painting, along with many others, was found on MINDS Visionary Art Channel without any attribution, posted by the user Ricky168

After this was initially discovered by @libaws and posted on her Facebook page, a discussion ensued, and Martina Hoffmann posted the following on Facebook:

I usually dislike getting involved in this sort of a thing but was made aware of this site (https://www.minds.com/) that is ‘The CRYPTO SOCIAL NETWORK”, which states: “We are an open source and decentralized platform for Internet freedom. GET PAID IN CRYPTO FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION to the community”. Someone, unknown to me, (https://www.minds.com/Ricky168) created a page called “Visionary Art’…”https://www.minds.com/groups/profile/666722386204172306” and posted my work as well as the work of other artists without asking permission nor giving us proper credit. So I tried to post the following comment below my art on his page: “This image was published on this site WITHOUT MY CONSENT, and while I really do appreciate that the creators of this page did mark the fact that ALL OF MY WORK IS COPY RIGHTED, which makes it subject to my specific consent for any form of usage or second-party publication, they still did not respect it. They also neglected to add the proper title and name of artist next to my GODDESS TRIANGLE BY MARTINA HOFFMANN. My work is all over the net and performing a google search in order to gather all necessary information is not rocket science. Thank you for rectifying this on all of my images as well as on those by all other ‘un-named artists’ published on your page!”When I tried to post this comment below my art, I received this message: “The comment couldn’t be saved because @Ricky168 has blocked you.”

WOW!
So to make my complaint very clear: I DO APPRECIATE people sharing my art but I’d l’d like to be credited appropriately and feel ripped off when my art is used, without my consent to collect voting points to earn crypto currency while I’m (the artist) being compensated for the publication of my art….Thoughts anyone?

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS WITH YOUR COMMUNITY and DOWN WITH THE PIRATES!!!


I have an account on Minds as well, which until now, is mostly idling: https://www.minds.com/TheMystic, but following this, I began some research, and after exhaustive scrolling came up with a large list of violations perpetrated by the user Ricky168.

MINDS – COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS:

The first link on my list below is the Austrian Artist Fritz Aigner

FRITZ-AIGNER-xlarge.jpg

and the second one is by my personal friend Vesna Krasnec, and I own this painting:

VESNA KRASNEC -xlarge.jpg
This list contains just the artists I know and, for the most part, are personal friends of mine.
The list covers less than a 3 week period of September 2018, and the ones I list are among hundreds of other scraped images that are also uncredited rip-offs.

Reacting to Martina Hoffmann:

My Facebook comment:
Martina Hoffmann if you are a member of Minds (I don’t know if you can if you are not), you can flag each individual piece – down arrow drop down menu – and mark it copyright violation. What happens next is that they give you a e-mail address:
Please submit a DMCA notice to copyright@minds.com
Anyway, I scrolled around for a while on that users account https://www.minds.com/Ricky168 and between Sept. 23rd and September 4th I found 62 copyright violations of artwork by people I know very well – not counting oodles of photos and tattoo artists. It seems he is scraping a eclectic variety of websites to steal images, i.e. those 62 I copied the URL’s I must have scrolled through hundreds of images within that short time period, so we are looking at the tip of the iceberg!


as I said, this list is just the tip of the iceberg, it is just ONE OF THE USERS ON MINDS that stuck out like a sore thumb, but a cursory scrolling of the posts on this MINDS Visionary Art Channel would reveal several more.


I also posted my 2 cents worth on a blog post discussion on Minds:
How to kill MINDS beauty

how to kill Minds? by having users on there that blatantly violate copyright, scraping images off the net and posting without attribution. Here is a comment I added to one post (you can see the post, I shared and pinned it to the top of my page) – and this is my comment: “a quick search between 22.9. and 4.9.2018 I found 61 copyright violations alone of artists works that I know personally, not counting possibly hundreds of others, photographers, tattoo artists etc. within just such a short time period alone. There appears NOTHING to be the work of the user @Ricky168 himself. None of the posts bear any attribution! Even so, copyright work can only be displayed with the permission of the copyright owner, particularly if the use of it is monetized! To clarify: If the artist himself posts a image, you are allowed to “share” it by re-blogging because then the image link will point back to the artist, but you are NOT allowed to scrape a image from the internet, even if you credit the artist!

VISIONARY ART GALLERY – UPDATE

•September 16, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Initially posted on Steemit, this VISIONARY ART GALLERY UPDATE is the first in a series to highlight the changes to the Visionary Art Gallery Website. Artists featured in this blog are the tip of the iceberg – I had fixed many more pages (but still many more to do) and will publish additional pages in the next series of updates.

VISIONARY ART GALLERY – UPDATE

Seven months ago I posted about VAG ARTISTS ON STEEMIT, such as Peter Gric

This post is about a small selection of over 500 artists from my network. The main website is the VISIONARY ART GALLERY, which I am currently working on changing the look and artist pages. This because Flash is history and the Flash features such as embedded slide shows do not work anymore, since the host site on Ning has done away with Flash. Read more about it: THE END OF FLASH. So I am working on installing HTML 5 slide shows and at the same time updating the website to a more modern look. This will keep me busy for a long time.


some ARTISTS PAGES fixed:

GRAEME WILLIAM BALCHIN

KIM EVANS

BRUNO DI MAIO

TANYA MILLER

SLAVKO KRUNIC

LIBA WARING STAMBOLLION

MARK HENSON

HANNAH FAITH YATA

IAIN WHITTAKER

ALORIA WEAVER

DRAGAN ILIC DI VOGO

SINISHA S KASHAWELSKI

SEAN KYLE ALLUM aka ELOH PROJECTS

ASSOCIATED ARTISTS

Some of our artist friends were not members of the private network on Ning, and they are listed under associated artists:

CYRIL HELNWEIN

MAURA HOLDEN

CARRIE ANN BAADE

BENEDETTO FELLIN

there are several more you find under that heading Associated Artists but I am also working on some of those pages that still need to be fixed.


We also have a section called Hall of Fame where we showcase some artists that were influencial to many of us:

I blogged about this cooperative project, where artists affiliated with us had worked on:

THE ANTIPODES PROJECT

A spin-off site from the Visionary Art Gallery is the VISIONARY ART EXHIBITION, where we showcase exceptional content, but there are also guest-blogs such as DREAMS & DIVINITIES (see below about affiliated sites), and ARCHAIC VISIONS


Some of our associated/affiliated sites:

THE ERRATIC GATHERING OF UNDISCIPLINED BIOMORPHIC OBJECTS

•September 13, 2018 • Leave a Comment

I have a account on the Steemit blockchain since August 2017 – you can check it out here: The Mystic Otto Rapp

This particular post you find here:

THE ERRATIC GATHERING OF UNDISCIPLINED BIOMORPHIC OBJECTS Finished!

MY LATEST POST on Steemit:

My last post showed a WIP – and some play in Deep Dream and Photoshop. You can check it out HERE. Now I am getting a bit more serious – no digital playground this time.

THE ERRATIC GATHERING OF
UNDISCIPLINED BIOMORPHIC OBJECTS

Finished!

Google spell check is insisting there is no such word as biomorphic, so I had to teach them again. According to the Tate, this is the definition of it:

Biomorphic comes from combining the Greek words ‘bios’, meaning life, and ‘morphe’, meaning form. The term seems to have come into use around the 1930s to describe the imagery in the more abstract types of surrealist painting and sculpture particularly in the work of Joan Miró and Jean Arp (see automatism). Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth also produced some superb biomorphs at that time, and later so did Louise Bourgeois.

ERRATIC, GATHERING, UNDISCIPLINED – these words in the title suggest my work-methods. But to quote the Bard: “There is method in his madness”

Though I often say the stuff I create comes from the subconscience, but it is also true that if you take something out, you first have to input. I did this by voracious reading in my younger years. Sometimes I remember what triggered my thoughts. In this case, I think long ago I was fascinated with Dado’s Vegetable Police, among other biomorphic works.
