Bright Diaries #1
Pettibon. Rollins. Morris. The first episode of “The Art Of Punk“ is out… and it’s seriously good!
The Art Of Punk
Over The Roofs Of Brooklyn
Is it a protest against skyrocketing NYC rents? A social program to house the poor? Noooo, it’s artist Thomas Stevenson’s “Bivouac New York“, a concept art/installation. Inviting a select group to spend their domestic hours in custom-made tents on an undisclosed Brooklyn rooftop “in the great city outdoors, roughing it“, Stevenson’s promising that “the sites are without electricity, internet and shower. It is all about the experience of disconnecting and meeting. That said there is always an indoor toilette“. If you’d like to try, check out Stevenson’s site – after NYC, London and Boston will be next.
Bright Ship Wreck
BRIGHT XVII is around the corner, and today we’re happy to announce BRIGHT SHIPWRECK, a massive free skateboarding event in Berlin: Using the natural transition of an industrial barge, a handpicked selection of 24 professional and amateur skaters from around the world will compete on this unique obstacle, still afloat on the river Spree, on Thursday, July 4. The ship will be mooring outside of MTV Europe’s headquarters, and apart from some rad skate action there’s going to be DJs, a huge BBQ, and a number of bars – so mark your calendars for this free event. BRIGHT SHIPWRECK is made possible through the support of Red Bull, VIVA, Titus und Budweiser.

The World Of Refuel: Starter Black Label
Starter Black Label. Mitchell & Ness. Beck & Hersey. Hall Of Fame. Brooklyn Overkill. Peas And Carrots. If there’s a distribution company with just the perfect fusion of sports clothing and streetwear under its belt, then it must be Refuel. This July sees Refuel Brand Distribution – quickly becoming the known licensee and distributor for iconic streetwear brands – come to Bright to showcase a growing number of exciting brands in Room 112, which actually is the only upstairs room in Bright‘s center-building. One of Refuel‘s very well-known brands sure is Starter Black Label – a premium American athletic brand, which already was established in 1971. Starter stands for vintage, authenticity and sports performance with a huge underground street appeal across Europe. With its rich history of sports collaborations and quality, the brand encourages people to “Look for the Star“, in reference to their iconic logo, seen as the stamp of approval for quality in both – street and sportswear. Find out more about their latest collaborations between July 3rd – July 5th at the latest edition of the Bright tradeshow. Stay tuned for more news about Refuel later this week…
