Das Bundesbüro von Attac in Frankfurt am Main ist am heutigen Donnerstagvormittag von der Staatsanwaltschaft München durchsucht worden. Laut Durchsuchungsbefehl des Münchner Amtsgerichts wird dem Vorstand des Attac-Trägervereins vorgeworfen, mit der Veröffentlichung eines Gutachtens zur BayernLB auf der Attac-Homepage das Urheberrecht verletzt zu haben.

Urheberrecht vs. Äußerungsfreiheit

Über den Missbrauch des Urheberrechts zum Zwecke der Unterdrückung unerwünschter Veröffentlichungen bzw. Informationen hatte ich bereits vor einiger Zeit gebloggt.

Jetzt hat das Amtsgericht München einen Durchsuchungsbeschluss gegen Attac erlassen, der sich darauf stützt, dass Attac mit der Veröffentlichung eines brisanten Gutachtens zu den Verfehlungen bei der BayernLB – an dessen Veröffentlichung ein erhebliches öffentliches Interesse besteht – gegen das Urheberrecht der Verfasser des Gutachtens verstoßen haben soll.

Dieser Fall erscheint mir gut geeignet, die sich hier stellenden grundlegenden verfassungsrechtlichen Fragen einmal klären zu lassen. Man muss hoffen, dass Attac das auch anstreben wird.

Dada Magazine (1917-1918)


Dada 1, July 1917 [PDF, 2.7mb]
Dada 2, December 1917 [PDF, 3.1mb]
Dada 3, December 1918 [PDF, 7mb]


Attempting to promulgate Dada ideas throughout Europe, Tristan Tzara launched the art and literature review Dada. Although, at the outset, it was planned that Dada members would take turns editing the review and that an editorial board would be created to make important decisions, Tzara quickly assumed control of the journal. But, as Richter said, in the end no one but Tzara had the talent for the job, and, "everyone was happy to watch such a brilliant editor at work."[10] Appearing in July 1917, the first issue of Dada, subtitled Miscellany of Art and Literature, featured contributions from members of avant-garde groups throughout Europe, including Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Delaunay, and Wassily Kandinsky. Marking the magazine's debut, Tzara wrote in the Zurich Chronicle, "Mysterious creation! Magic Revolver! The Dada Movement is Launched." Word of Dada quickly spread: Tzara's new review was purchased widely and found its way into every country in Europe, and its international status was established.

While the first two issues of Dada (the second appeared in December 1917) followed the structured format of Cabaret Voltaire, the third issue of Dada (December 1918) was decidedly different and marked significant changes within the Dada movement itself. Issue number 3 violated all the rules and conventions in typography and layout and undermined established notions of order and logic. Printed in newspaper format in both French and German editions, it embodies Dada's celebration of nonsense and chaos with an explosive mixture of manifestos, poetry, and advertisementsÑall typeset in randomly ordered lettering.

The unconventional and experimental design was matched only by the radical declarations contained within the third issue of Dada. Included is Tzara's "Dada Manifesto of 1918," which was read at Meise Hall in Zurich on July 23, 1918, and is perhaps the most important of the Dadaist manifestos. In it Tzara proclaimed:

Dada: the abolition of logic, the dance of the impotents of creation; Dada: abolition of all the social hierarchies and equations set up by our valets to preserve values; Dada: every object, all objects, sentiments and obscurities, phantoms and the precise shock of parallel lines, are weapons in the fight; Dada: abolition of memory; Dada: abolition of archaeology; Dada: abolition of the prophets; Dada: abolition of the future; Dada: absolute and unquestionable faith in every god that is the product of spontaneity.
With the third issue of Dada, Tzara caught the attention of the European avant-garde and signaled the growth and impact of the movement. Francis Picabia, who was in New York at the time, and Hans Richter were among the figures who, by signing their names to this issue, now aligned themselves with Dada. Picabia praised the issue:
Dada 3 has just arrived. Bravo! This issue is wonderful. It has done me a great deal of good to read in Switzerland, at last, something that is not absolutely stupid. The whole thing is really excellent. The manifesto is the expression of all philosophies that seek truth; when there is no truth there are only conventions.

Palestine: Kidnapping of Italian Activist in Gaza

Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni was kidnapped today in Gaza by a Salafi-Jihadi group, who say they will kill him if Sheikh Abu Al Waleed Al Maqdisi, recently arrested by the Hamas government, is not released.

Vittorio Arrigoni (profile picture from Facebook)

Arrigoni - known as Vik - has been in Gaza for over two years with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). (See this Global Voices post about him.) Gaza blogger Omar Ghraieb writes that Arrigoni's kidnappers are threatening to kill him:

Vittorio Arrigoni, 36, ISM volunteer in Gaza, was kidnapped earlier today in Gaza city. Later, a youtube video surfaced showing Vittorio blindfolded and beaten up.

Salafi Jehadis claimed the responsibility of kidnapping and abducting him asking Hamas government in Gaza to release Abu Al Waleed Al Maqdisi in 30 hours starting from 11 am today 14\4\2011 or else they would kill him.

All journos in Gaza, Vittorio's friends here and his friends everywhere ask Hamas to immediately intervene and release Vittorio who worked hard to help Gaza for a long time.

Please let's all pray for his safe release.

This is the video Arrigoni's kidnappers released:

Some reactions to the kidnapping on Twitter:

@SanaKassem To all Gazans. A great supporter of the Palestinian struggle, #Vittorio Arrigoni, has been kidnapped in #Gaza. He needs your support.

@Omar_Gaza Hamas we ask you to immediately intervene and release Vittorio Arrigoni now, Italian ISM worker! #Gaza #FreeVittorioNow

@jmalsin Stunned, sickened, after seeing the video of what salafists claim is a captive Vittorio Arrigoni, who I met several times in Gaza.

@forumeditor Why kidnap Vittorio Arrigoni who's trying to help the their own cause? His abductors r disgusting: anyone's fair game so they get publicity.

Vittorio Arrigoni's Facebook page is here.

Hausdurchsuchung im Attac Bundesbüro | Mike Nagler

Im Bundesbüro von Attac Deutschland in Frankfurt findet gerade eine Hausdurchsuchung statt. Die Polizei beschlagnahmt Computer und mehr. Im Zusammenhang steht die Durchsuchung mit der von Attac ins Netz gestellten Studie zur Bayern LB. Offenbar soll diese Aktion als Einschüchterung funktionieren.

What can we say about the short-term seismic future for Japan and the region?


When we look at other magnitude 9s, they have many aftershocks. The average magnitude 9 has one magnitude 8. And there was one magnitude 8 that was hidden in the main earthquake data. They will have 10 magnitude 7s, 100 magnitude 6s and so on. That's the typical sequence.

Georg Friedrich Händel
JEPHTHA
(1752)
An Oratorio; or Sacred Drama
Words by Thomas Morell

(no information about this interpretation is available - it seems to be recorded in the late 50ies - may be that David Willcocks is the conductor. The whole oratorium from this recording is online on youtube)


The interpretation as such is imho inspite of the relative weak recording quality absolute stunning - on Youtube its the first time I have had the chance to listen to it.

The chosen successional parts 45-53 have a duration of ~35 min.



(The libretto may be also followed on the video screen.)

ACT TWO


[...]

Scene 3

 
[...]

44. Quartet Zebul
Oh, spare your daughter,

Storgè
Spare my child,

Hamor
My love!

Jephtha
Recorded stands my vow in Heav'n above.

Storgè
Recall the impious vow, ere 'tis too late.

Jephtha
I'll hear no more, her doom is fix'd as fate!

Hamor, Zebul, Storgè
And think not Heav'n delights
In Moloch's horrid rites.

Scene 4

Enter Iphis.

45. Accompagnato

Iphis
Such news flies swift. I've heard the mournful cause
Of all your sorrows. Of my father's vow
Heav'n spoke its approbation by success.
Jephtha has triumph'd, Israel is free.
For joys so vast too little is the price
Of one poor life. But oh, accept it, Heav'n,
A grateful victim, and thy blessing still
Pour on my country, friends, and dearest father!

46. Air

Iphis
Happy they! This vital breath
With content I shall resign,
And not murmur or repine,
Sinking in the arms of death.
Happy they. . . da capo

47. Accompagnato

Jephtha
Deeper, and deeper still, thy goodness, child,
Pierceth a father's bleeding heart, and checks
The cruel sentence on my falt'ring tongue.
Oh, let me whisper it to the raging winds,
Or howling deserts; for the ears of men
It is too shocking. Yet have I not vow'd?
And can I think the great Jehovah sleeps,
Like Chemosh and such fabled deities?
Ah no; Heav'n heard my thoughts, and wrote them down;
It must be so. 'Tis this that racks my brain,
And pours into my breast a thousand pangs
That lash me into madness. Horrid thought!
My only daughter, so dear a child,
Doom'd by a father! Yes, the vow is past,
And Gilead hath triumph'd o'er his foes.
Therefore, tomorrow's dawn... I can no more.

48. Chorus

How dark, O Lord, are Thy decrees,
All hid from mortal sight,
All our joys to sorrow turning,
And our triumphs into mourning,
As the night succeeds the day.
No certain bliss,
No solid peace,
We mortals know
On earth below,
Yet on this maxim still obey:
"Whatever is, is right."

 

ACT THREE

 

Scene 1

Jephtha, Iphis, Priests and Chorus.

49. Accompagnato

Jephtha
Hide thou thy hated beams, O sun, in clouds
And darkness, deep as is a father's woe;
A father, off'ring up his only child
In vow'd return for victory and peace.

50. Air

Jephtha
Waft her, angels, through the skies,
Far above yon azure plain,
Glorious there, like you, to rise,
There, like you, for ever reign.
Waft her. . . da capo

51. Recitative

Iphis
Ye sacred priests, whose hands ne'er yet were stain'd
With human blood, why are ye thus afraid
To execute my father's will? The call of Heav'n
With humble resignation I obey.

52. Air

Iphis
Farewell, ye limpid springs and floods,
Ye flow'ry meads and leafy woods;
Farewell, thou busy world where reign
Short hours of joy and years of pain.
Brighter scenes I seek above
In the realms of peace and love.

53. Chorus of Priests

Doubtful fear and rev'rent awe
Strike us, Lord, while here we bow,
Check'd by Thy all-sacred law,
Yet commanded by the vow.
Hear our pray'r in this distress,
And Thy determin'd will declare.
