Of Course Art Can Change The World, If Only The Art World Wanted It To

VICE wrote up a cool panel discussion at Bard on the subject of politically engaged art today, but it was lacking an answer to the question it posed: Can art be a form of political activism?
The obvious answer is, well, yes, of course. I mean, look at Jacques-Louis David’s “The Death of Marat,”

I Love David Bowie, But He Is Unbearably Pretentious

I love David Bowie so, so, so much. SO much. There’s a David Bowie colony in my heart that takes up most of the left ventricle. I am awed and inspired by his body of work, by the flexibility of his mind, and by his prowess as a performer and as a businessman.
That…

Lorde’s Style Icons Are David Bowie & Grace Jones, Of Course

“The kind of clothes that I’ve found I like to wear over the past year and six months have all been things that make me feel powerful and strong. I wear a lot of pants. I wear a lot of long, structured dresses.”

David Bowie Releases The Third Music Video Off His Latest Album, “The Next Day”

Does watching David Bowie sit, strum a guitar, and stare menacingly into the camera for the better part of 3 minutes and 9 seconds sound like your idea of a good time? Well, it better, because I don’t want to know the person who answers no to that question. In stark contrast to the macabre…

David Bowie’s Latest Star-Studded Music Video Is Totally Amazing (And Probably NSFW)

Morrissey Disses Bowie, Gets With Rick Astley Instead

In a busy Morrissey-filled week, sometimes important Morrissey Watch news items slip through the cracks. Like Morrissey’s burgeoning feud with David Bowie. It seems Bowie wasn’t too keen on Mozzer using a previously unreleased photograph of the two of them for the cover of the reissue of “Last of the International Playboys.” We’re sure Morrissey…

Kate Moss Channels Ziggy — Stardust, That Is

Glamorous supermodel Kate Moss does the androgynous thing on the latest cover of Vogue Paris, where she evokes a Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie. Moss is pretty hot, and Bowie’s not too bad either, so the combination of the two on one cover is pretty powerful.

David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” For Kids

I absolutely love karaoking David Bowie songs. “Life on Mars” ranks highly, but nothing is quite amazing as “Space Oddity.” And now an illustrator named Andrew Kolb has made a picture book of the iconic song. And it’s awesome! The story of Major Tom is available in PDF form now, but if there’s enough demand…

Goblin King Meets Macbook

This amazing decal of David Bowie as the Goblin King instantly transforms a lowly Macbook into a magical scene from the “The Labyrinth,” aka The Best Movie Ever. Ideally it would come with a separate decal depicting that legendary codpiece, but hey, this is a great start. [$23, Stickerman]…

Ooh, Fashion! “Glee” Pays Tribute To Fashion’s Night Out

I really want to like “Glee,” but I can’t deal with all the musical interludes. Too much singing! Too much Lea Michele, who seems like she’d be that totally over-dramatic neurotic friend who’s always crying in public. But this video of the cast performing David Bowie’s “Fashion” in honor of next month’s upcoming “Fashion’…

Iman Is Married To David Jones, Not David Bowie

“I am married to David Jones. David Bowie and David Jones are two totally different people. I did not want to get involved with a rock star. No way. It is not a sane thing to do but David changed my mind. He wooed me. I remember once the laces on my trainers came undone…

Iman On Loving David Bowie And Marriage

“David doesn’t fight. He is English, so he just stays quiet. I’m the screamer. Then he always makes me laugh. It’s like cabaret … I still fancy him—totally! After all these years … I vowed to myself when I got married that I would cook every night. I find it very therapeutic.”
Iman chats with…

Old-School Wednesdays: Queen And David Bowie Are “Under Pressure”

We were reminded of Queen and David Bowie’s amazing rendition of “Under Pressure” earlier this week, and wanted to take another look at the video. This video reads like “the history of stress,” but wait! It redeems itself with sweetness and light at the end. Why don’t you give love one more chance, after all.
