Second decade of the 21st century. Corporations rule. The world is threatened by a new plague: NAS. Nerve Attenuation Syndrome, fatal, epidemic, its cause and cure unknown. The corporations are opposed by the LoTeks, a resistance movement risen from the streets: hackers, data-pirates, guerrilla-fighters in the info-wars. The corporations defend themselves. They hire the Yakuza, the most powerful of all crime syndicates. They sheathe their data in black ice, lethal viruses waiting to burn the brains of intruders. But the LoTeks wait in their strongholds, in the old city cores, like rats in the walls of the world. The most valuable information must sometimes be entrusted to mnemonic couriers, elite agents who smuggle data in wet-wired brain implants. Johnny Mnemonic is one of these couriers. This is his story

"Paul H-O became a fixture of the New York art scene in the 1990s with his public access show GalleryBeat. Armed with a video camera, he attended art gallery openings, amusing some with his candid, witty assessments of their work, but also winning many fans. Among the latter was Cindy Sherman, the press-shy artist who is internationally acknowledged as one of the world's most gifted and significant visual talents. Cindy invites Paul to her studio for a series of exclusive interviews and through these videotaped encounters, he gains unprecedented insight into her artistic process and a romantic relationship blossoms. Their initial bliss ends when Paul finds himself wracked with anxiety about his own personality becoming subsumed by his role as Cindy's guest at the celebrity-studded openings and dinners she regularly attends."--Film's website

Robert Longo Stand by Robert Longo ( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On April 27 2012, the exhibition STAN opened at Capitain Petzel Gallery. STAND was a site specific installation which activated the architecture of the unique gallery. Longo uses the polemic: ?American?s conviction that the inalienable rights of all mankind transcend territorial borders and blood ties, making its nationalism internationalist at its core? (Robert Kagan, Dangerous Nation) to bring this group of overt political and personal work to Berlin. All aspects of the installation transform and complicate the gallery space, starting with the shell of the building, which is shrouded with an enormous depiction of the American flag in black and white. The exhibition includes drawings of Occupy Wall Street protestors, soldiers, and other American portraits, as well as performance with live readings of Moby Dick. "
