Interested in the intersections between the various creative fields, White Zinfandel is a continuation of this curatorial experiment, coupling food and art as a reliable means to provoke unexpected reactions, cravings and curiositites.

Dodo Magazine @ Motto Berlin. 27.06.2014

Posted in events, Uncategorized on June 26th, 2014

time_capsule_tour_motto_berlin

To celebrate the launch of Dodo Magazine issue #2, we’re inviting you to a special celebration at Motto Berlin. We will set up a temporary exhibition about the history of time capsules along with the official Dodo Time Capsule. You can bring along any small object you’d like to put inside. We will photograph and document all the objects and they will appear in Dodo’s “Future” issue. These objects and the magazines will be inside the time capsule until April 2024. Then it shall be opened and the magazines will be delivered to their ten-year-older owners. The objects collated at the launches in Berlin and Madrid will remain in the time capsule and be buried somewhere secret forever, so it can be discovered again in three thousand years by some future living being, giving information about what we were like. What small object do you want to be remembered by in the future?

Dodo Magazine Issue 2:

This unusual experiment in publishing aims to remind people to maintain their spontaneous, lively spirit in years to come. Buyers of the current issue will receive the first half of the magazine, ‘Present’, on the day of purchase, and then can provide as many contact details as possible in order to be found again in April 2024 to receive their ‘Future’ magazine. Readers will also receive a letter written by themselves to their future selves.

“Present” Issue summary:

This issue celebrates the time now with content aimed to wake up your inner child. Inside you will find a guide to the stars, tips to pass unnoticed, an interview with Audrey, the plant of the little shop of horrors, an adventure bazaar, unexpected plants, a history of high fives, an interview with Hungry Castle, a trip to Pangea, pictures from Tobu World, a thorough guide to keeping a stick insect as a pet, the story about the strange inhabitants of Mecerreyes, the definitive article about Muppets creator Jim Henson, an adventure in finding Big Foot, a guide to survive a curse, and even more… The content is fully made by amazing collaborators from all over the world, Adam J. Kurtz, Aitor Saraiba, Álvaro Mingo, Bandid8, Bubi Canal, Cristina Velar, David Méndez Alonso, Emo Díaz, Enrique del Rivero Cuesta, Felipe Olaya, Gonzalo Baró, Ian Edgehill, James Clapham, Jan Buchczik, Lauren Ingram, Lilly Friedeberg, Lucía Martín, Miguel Ángel Belando, Noa Snir, Popy Blasco, Roc Canal, Rosa Soro, Rut Briones, Saria Dy, Sean Ford, Tak Tokio, Teresa Fernández, Thom Lambert, etc…

“Future” Issue summary:

The “Future” issue is a magazine exclusively made to be read in 2024. The topics included will discuss the future but with the key of the past. There will be an interview with a fortune teller about what life will be like in 2024, so when we read the Future issue we’ll finally find out whether or not they are a fake. Articles about time machines and time capsules, a guide on what to do if the future is not what you expected, and many surprises that you will be just able to read if you order it now. This double issue is a limited edition because we will have to undertakeplenty of research in the future to find all of the owners. So be fast and don’t stay without your copy.

Much of Mahony´s artistic production derives from well known and unknown historical facts. This kind of appropriation in Mahonyterms always means questioning, transforming, translating, re-associating and reactivating the chosen topic. With this process they form new rhizomatic nets making connections from past to present, paths that go across geographical and historical zones, social and political contexts. They alienate the viewer by translating found material from ancient times into ours or from one culture into another. At the beginning of a project oftentimes stands a journey to places like Yucatan (2011), Ushuaia (2009) and Brasil (by cargoship, 2009). Therefore works that emerge in public space or in the countryside are later continued in the studio and vice versa. The media and material that
