“The generosity of the curators for the activists is an expression of a profound indignation to seriously deal with the political and social function of their own event, and reflects that international movements, if at all, can only be brought in relation to Berlin-based artistic and political groups via casting. But this inability has a bad reason, says Žmijewski, because the artist in “post-political” Berlin had forgotten, “that only work for the own community makes sense, without them any sense is lost.” This concept of community at Berlin Biennale is determined explicitly ethnic, religious, and above all nationally. In their appeal, the Biennale, reproduces the usual appeals to God, nation and state as safe factors of collectivisation and recalls reactionary stereotypes of repressive mass art, which seeks to ensure a community cohesion of their audience by emotional overwhelming: “I,” said Žmijewski, “have asked myself whether the language of art can enable people in an ideological or religious state of excitement. Could artists acquire the same manipulative skills as a politicians? (…)”
We’ve just quoted Rosa Perutz collective and their article “TRUST YOUR ANGST”, published in both English and German at http://perutz.copyriot.com/. The quoted review of the mentioned gentrification festival appears to be sporting an incredible depth of research, and it is a must for everyone trying to grasp the fascist conception and modus operandi of the BB7, especially for the journalists.
The fetishized “most radical Russian art group today” VOINA is deep in the same dung (one view of the official VOINA website http://free-voina.org/ leaves the impression that their best friends are Nazbol – no wonder why they are “curating” the 2012 biennale alongside aggressively autistic Zmiy). According to VOINA “main ideologist” Vorotnikov, apparently VOINA won Zmiy over by their “irascible condemnations in Russia of foreign wealth”. In the style of BB7, VOINA is exposing themselves: “Kazimir Malevich, after the revolution in Petrograd, armed with a pistol, [he] passed through artists’ studios asking who was still painting birches and demanded real art. Armed with a weapon. That is real art.” The anti-communists Krytyka Polityczna, on their behalf, support the rush to unite post-soviet “nations”.
While Kavecs Projects would suggest a comparative look between the present and the times of Weimar Republic if one is to get a grasp the social processes taking place globally today, some of our team suggest that the seeming inner contradiction of even the terms themselves such as “National Anarchism”, “National Bolshevism” or “Autonomous Nationalism” might be strongly related to broader social categories / cultures / traditions of thought.

The emblem on the front cover shows a representation of proletarian purity being threatened with corruption from environmentalists and anarchists.
From the back cover:
“We are going to see an increase in militancy… The unabomber, the ALF, Justice Department and ARM, the Oklahoma bombers and Japanese AUM cult all show the direction it is going in. Outside of Middle-Eastern terrorism, events like the Oklahoma bomb would have been unthinkable 15 years ago. Such developments are inspirational and open up wide ranges of new possibilites.”
Stephen Booth Into The 1990’s With Green Anarchist
(Green Anarchist Books, Camberley 1996, pages 153-4)
Green Anarchist’s support for neo-Nazi bomb attacks such as the Oklahoma massacre in which 168 people were indicriminately murdered, might be seen by some as aberrant. This pamphlet demonstrates such an assessment is mistaken. Green Anarchist are part of a right-wing cabal which permeates the Primitivist Network and the ‘academic’ journal Anarchist Studies, amongst others. The dogmas propogated by contemporary ‘libertarian’ militants are traced back to nineteenth-century anarchists like Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, a vcious anti-semite who dreamt of the final solution nearly a hundred years before the Nazi holocaust. In this text, Luther Blissett tears the mask off anarchism to reveal the shocking truth that lies beneath its fraudulent ‘left-wing’ image. The Nazis did not invent the deranged anti-semetic conspiracy theories that led to the horrors of the gas chambers. The despicable lie that Marx and Rothschild were working together to stage an internation coup was first ventilated by the founding fathers of modern anarchism…
