MOVING ON BUT DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Although there’s a teeny-weeny chance I might extend my stay at the Palmdwarsstraat I’m making a move. As chances are slim amyways I had to find at least a place to store the collection and archive. I found something in the center of Amsterdam which makes it possible to do some trade albeit by appointment only. Alas for exhibits I have to explore other avenues. Leaving the Palmdwarsstraat means I have to cut short these activities for the moment. Even …

MEET YOUR FIXER! One day exhibit in BRAKKE GROND Saturday 19th 2015

The organizers of MEET YOUR MAKER asked MOVIE INK. AMSTERDAM to dress the event for the day with a small exhibit. Of course I said yes as there is no space MIA won’t fill with posters given half a chance. It’s gonna be a challenge as I only have two hours and two very unforgiving walls to work with that are rock hard with a meter high acoustic panel smack in the middle. MEET YOUR MAKER is an event to …

About the Worldwide Context Of The Magic Centre

Born in 1963 I can’t say I’m a sixties child, I haven’t experienced the free love, I wasn’t part of the flower people.  I do however remember as a little boy participating in Vietnam protest marches alternately shouting “Johnson murderer!” and “Nixon murderer!” In a sense I have a connection here with the sixties and the Provo movement as it took up its intellectual role of militancy. Doing this the movement laid a groundwork for the early 1970’s with its anti-establishment/anti-state …

HAMMER TIME! MOVIE INK. is closed this weekend

MOVIE INK. is closed this weekend as I’m off to London for a long weekend, nothing serious just visiting friends. As luck will have it my friends haven’t quite the edge they used to have. This means that after only two nights of drinking they feel the need to be pampered like some delicate diva’s in some spa Saturday afternoon. That gives me the time to sneak off and visit the London Film Memorabilia Convention in Westminster where I will …
