A visit from Germany

About a week ago we had a visit from Köln. A group of skaters who saw our blog (to our greatest surprise, because till the moment we didn’t do anything to promote it for real, it was still in the construction), came to Fažana in search of our DIY spot. When we met accidentally on the streets of Pula, they already skated the spot. But there was still something left to discover, something that’s not so easy to find.
The next day we took them to skate the secrets of Austro-Hungarian fortresses. Despite the hot summer noon sun and deadly snakes crawling around the ruins, disturbed in their insolation, they came with fresh perception and throw a good session.

Florian Schneider: Pushed on VFF 2013!

Pushed by Florian Schneider is on our wish list since when we started with the festival and finally we have the opportunity to screen it!

Here are few words from the author about the film:

“… this project deals with the links between skateboarding and creative habbits. It is about the point of view you get on your environment because of skateboarding. It deals with love and hate in a piece of wood and all the different kinds of creative output that is produced in skateboarding’s own microkosmos. And it may take a look at the kitschy question of this passion, such as: Is it possible to look at skateboarding as an artform?”

Speaking about the people he picked to portray in his film, Florian says:

“I picked these characters because I have always been impressed and inspired by their work. I like the fact that these guys are going their way without any sell-outs or even selling their motives – which is kind of a kitschy point of view as well. In my eyes, these guys were always up to giving something back to this scene from a very independent attitude.”

Bageri Zagrebačkog holdinga u ranojutarnjim su satima po nalogu sanacijskog upravitelja Studentskog centra (SC) Peje Pavlovića počeli s rušenjem skate skulpture radi proširenja parkirališnog prostora, čemu se svojim tijelima usprotivilo stotinjak skate aktivista koji su prije sedam godina od SC-a dobili taj prostor za spomenutu skulpturu, istaknuo je jedan od organizatora prosvjeda Marin Dundić.

Dundić ističe kako ih nitko, a najmanje sanacijski upravitelj, za kojeg napominje da sve radi na svoju ruku, uopće nije obavijestio o početku rušenja skulpture, već da su ih o rušenju izvještavali njihovi aktivisti koji su jutros vlakom putovali na posao i koji su to sve uočili iz vlaka.

Pula: Skate rampu srušili ‘jer su je radila djeca’?!

Tako su do dolaska aktivista, po Dundićevoj procjeni, bageri uspjeli srušiti trideset posto skulpture, a nakon što su aktivisti tijelima spriječili daljnje rušenje, bageri su utihnuli. Sanacijski upravitelj pozvao je i policiju koja je aktiviste navodno upozorila da imaju pravo na miran prosvjed, savjetujući ih da ne ulaze u konflikte.

Pobuna subkulture: Odlukom načelnice u blatu

Dundić pojašnjava kako su dobili rješenje da je skulptura bespravni objekt, no isto tako tvrdi da mu to nikako nije jasno jer su prije sedam godina upravo od SC-a dobili prostor. Stoga očekuje da će im se obratiti zagrebački gradonačelnik Milan Bandić, kojega je putem medija pozvao da ih obavijesti hoće li skulptura ostati na tom mjestu. Odluči li se da ju treba ukloniti aktivisti traže drugo mjesto za postavljanje skulpture koja je po njihovim riječima jedinstvena u Hrvatskoj.

Također, ističu i da su spremni svojim tijelima skulpturu braniti sljedećih nekoliko dana, uključujući i noćna dežurstva, jer imaju dovoljan broj aktivista za tu akciju.

‘Nećemo dopustiti da se naša skuptura pretvori u parkirališni prostor’, zaključio je Dundić.
