Dissection 19-Tape Box and Photo Book

5 Jan

DSR 118 – DISSECTION tape box, including comprehensive photo book of the history of Dissection, released in 2021 by @dsr_productions

I received the box already in September last year, but have not posted or shared much since. In addition, I was not sure how I could communicate my feelings of gratitude and admiration for this important release. Time has of course also been an issue. So weeks and months passed, until I finally, by the end of December, grabbed the camera and simply took a few selfie shots with the book. I may be making some funny faces – enjoy. Despite all earnestness, there have also been incredibly hilarious moments, which are also present in the book. The book and tapes are really a wonderful piece of memorabilia.

Die Toten Kommen (the dead are coming)

Die Toten Kommen

If you are wondering about the grave-cross photo I posted last night, here is the background story: the “grave” is part of a nation-wide campaign against European refugee policy. Berlin art group, “Zentrum für Politische Schönheit”, calls out to create awareness and establish artificial graves all across Germany and Europe in memory of the unknown refugees that died when trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea. Part of the campaign is also the transferring of bodies of dead refugees to Germany for giving them a proper burial and giving relatives the possibility to say goodbye in a respectful manner. Their activism is of course not welcomed by the German government. However people all across the country and the EU can take part in the activities that aim to create awareness, as opposed to ignorance and looking away from what is happening at the Southern European border.

It was a surprise to find this “grave” last night. I’m occasionally lighting grave-candles here in necromantic cross-road workings. I’m usually honoring Hecate and other, known and also unknown dead, e.g. I also give offerings to anonymous dead. Now I come here and find a grave with offerings, looking so familiar. I really do support the cause behind it.

“Die Toten kommen ” (The dead are coming) – the motto is to be taken literal. If you want to support the efforts made to give the dead a proper burial right there, where it hurts politicians the most, please consider donating: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/die-toten-kommen#/story

In turn for donations you can chose to receive art items, postcards, posters, shirts etc.
