06-20-2008 - Stacy Malkin- Not Just A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the
Beauty Industry
Posted: 20 Jun 2008 02:00 AM CDT

Stacy Malkin, Not Just A Pretty Face, Gives the Cosmetics Industry an
Extreme Makeover
Friday, June 20 — 7:00PM
Stacy Malkin is Communications Director of Health Care Without Harm and
co—founder of the Campaign for safe Cosmetics, a national coalition
working to eliminate hazardous chemicals from personal care products.
Malkin shows us how the FDA does not regulate skin products, how lead
gets into lipstick and coal tar makes its way into shampoo. Why, asks
Malkin, does the cosmetics industry market themselves as pink ribbon
leaders in the fight against breast cancer, yet use hormone—disrupting
chemicals that may contribute to that very disease?
Stacy Malkin gives the cosmetics industry an extreme makeover with her
book, Not Just A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry, which
has just won an important award in independent publishing.
a true cosmetics makeover, Stacy Malkin shows how to put on your game
face by knowing what the chemicals are so that we don't all get made up
as guinea pigs.
QUOTE: As if there werent enough concerns about
the toxicity of cosmetic chemicals, manufacturers are rushing to
incorporate nanotechnology that uses particles 80,000 times smaller
than the width of a human hair....Animal studies show that some
nanoparticles can penetrate cells and tissues, move through the body
and brain and cause biochemical damage.

06-20-2008 - GLOBAL UNDERGROUNDS - Videos by Guy Ben-Ner
Posted: 20 Jun 2008 02:00 AM CDT

Guy Ben—Ner was born in Ramat Gam, Israel. He currently lives in New
Beauty (2007) was shot without permission at numerous IKEA stores
around New York, Berlin and Tel Aviv. In the movie the Ben—Ners quite
naturally inhabit idealized showroom interiors with price tags dangling
from furniture, and shoppers occasionally interrupting the family's
daily routines. Because of the hit—and—run filming, the traditional
cinematic continuity is abandoned and the changing sets are stand—ins
for their home. The narrative, however, remains linear as the father
offers life lessons on the subjects of economic exchange, meaning of
private property, ethics, and family love eventually leading to the
children's rebellious manifesto.
In Berkeley's Island (1999)
the first video to address his position of 'domestic artist', Guy
Ben—Ner placed a small sandy island complete with a palm tree in the
middle of the kitchen and became a shipwreck survivor living in
solitude amidst domestic life going on around him. Through existential
introspection combined with often hilarious use of resources that the
kitchen set provides ('I learned to use what the island supplied me
with'), 'Berkeley's Island' depicts the home environment as an exile
and simultaneously as a place to escape from.
Moby Dick
(2000) adapts Herman Melville’s classic novel, a sprawling tale
centered on Captain Ahab’s quest to exact revenge against the great
white whale Moby—Dick. The video features Guy and his 6—year—old
daughter play—acting in their home kitchen in ways that take to absurd
extremes the aesthetic of family home videos. Using minimal props (a
rope and a pole) Ben—Ner transforms the space into a make—believe ship
– a playground for the reenactment of the classic tale.
Boy (2004) tells the story of a wild child and his educator, a story of
power relations and the fantasy of bringing somebody up after one's own
image. It is the story of every parent—child rearing, but more than
that, it is a story of a director and his child—actor, raising the
question of what it means to direct a child, to contain a child inside
a fixed frame, to command him in and out of the frame (as if it is his
private room). 
On another level, it also raises the possibility of
looking at early cinema (the “Cinema of attractions” as was coined by
Tom Gunning), as a mute wild child that was tamed, eventually, by
language (sound, narrative). “Wild boy” is based on several case
histories, some myths, some educational manuals and is referring to a
wide range of movies, from old photos left of the vaudeville acts by
father and son, Buster and Joe Keaton, through Truffaut's “Wild Child”,
to “The Kid” by Chaplin. 
Thanks to Postmasters Gallery in Chelsea for lending us Guy’s work
