Perjovschi is known internationally for his unique blend of wit and sociopolitical critique, and for this exhibition, Perjovschi targets the upcoming American presidential election. Having collected months worth of newspapers, Perjovschi’s interest in American and world politics has informed his recent work, a series of interventions directly on the papers. Exit Strategy questions how we’ll reconcile today’s turbulent political state with that of the recent past, specifically the war in Iraq. Is the future born out of the events of the past?

Twenty year-old Australian producer Flume just returned to Sydney after playing his first US shows last month at CMJ to an overwhelmingly positive response. Before diving into all that’s happening now for this young beatmaker, let’s go back to Flume at age 13, when he got his first taste of production by finding a music production program in a cereal box. This discovery began his obsessions with all things synthetic, and started his addiction for plug-ins, sample packs and vintage analogue hardware. Taking a no-holds-barred attitude to music creation, Flume learned to find inspiration in a wide variety of sources and scenes, distilling his sound into a melodic bass heavy style that is uniquely his own. Flume’s self-titled debut, Flume, will be out digitally on November 9th via Future Classic with an official physical release slated for early next year. See the music video for Flume’s track Sleepless feat. Jezzabell Doran after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]

Women constitute more than half of the population. In 2008, 60% of voters were women. It is estimated that 10 million more women than men will vote in this election. Despite this, women make up only 16% of Congress. Women earn only 70 cents to each dollar men make. Women of color and undocumented women make less than white citizens. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are determined to overturn Roe V. Wade. Romney has not supported equal pay for women (The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act). Romney has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood. Romney has vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Romney doesn’t want health care to cover birth control. Romney says same sex marriage should be banned with a Constitutional Amendment. Women, let’s rise up. Our vote alone can win this election. A vote for Obama is a vote for your health and your right to choose. It is a vote for equal pay and equal rights. A vote for Obama is a vote for our families. It is a vote to marry who you choose. It’s a vote to start a family when you choose. A vote for Obama says that we won’t stand for violence against women and that rape is rape. Our vote ensures that our daughters will grow up with the same rights that we’ve had. A vote for Obama sends a message: This war on women must end. We will not go backwards. This election is shockingly close. Our safety is at stake. Our silence is consent and our vote is our voice. Let’s get active. Let’s get out every vote we can. Let’s make this election a mandate. A mandate to finally ensure women the respect, dignity and equality we all deserve! This is now. This is our call to action. Once and for all, let’s take back the power that is so inherently and naturally ours!
