The International

The song of the First and Second International, it was written by a transport worker after the Paris Communewas crushed by the French government. The song was later used as the first Soviet Union National Anthem and Anthem of the (Third) Communist International, until 1944 when the latter was disolved.

Arise ye workers from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.

No more deluded by reaction
On tyrants only we’ll make war
The soldiers too will take strike action
They’ll break ranks and fight no more
And if those cannibals keep trying
To sacrifice us to their pride
They soon shall hear the bullets flying
We’ll shoot the generals on our own side.

No saviour from on high delivers
No faith have we in prince or peer
Our own right hand the chains must shiver
Chains of hatred, greed and fear
E’er the thieves will out with their booty
And give to all a happier lot.
Each at the forge must do their duty
And we’ll strike while the iron is hot.

Thomas Ruff | Lichten SMAK Ghent Belgium 17.05… 24.08.2014

Another great exhibition at SMAK Ghent Belgium coming up:

Here’s the intro to the exhibition, at least what SMAK has to say about it.

As part of its focus series on the artists in the collection, the S.M.A.K. is organising an exhibition of works by Thomas Ruff (Zell am Harmersbach, Germany, 1958). As the leading figure in the Dusseldorf school of photography, Ruff is best known for his series of staged and generic portraits. The S.M.A.K. exhibition concentrates on the pivotal change affecting photography over the last 30 years: the gradual disappearance of light in the transition from analogue to digital photography. Starting with Ruff’s ‘Photograms’ (2012 to the present-day) – a simulation of this historical genre – the exhibition includes amongst others ‘Sterne’ (1989-1992), ‘Nächte’ (1992-1996) and his first series, ‘Interieurs’ (1979-1983). Technical considerations, rendered in images of stars at night, infrared shots of city suburbs and domestic still lives, construct a political and social perspective of the status of images.

Het Nijmeegse Mannheim heeft een geheel eigenzinnige sound – post-rock-jazz-metal als een ideale mix van luide vierkante metal-riffs, saxofoon en een avontuurlijke ritme sectie. Mannheim speelt ook op het Dunk!festival dit jaar!
