    1. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has acquired the MIT Press colophon, designed by Muriel Cooper, as part of its permanent collection. Designed in 1965 and now widely celebrated as a hallmark of modernist design, the iconic logo was abstracted from the letters “mitp” into the barcode-resembling design that stamps the spines of the press’s publications.

      Muriel Cooper, the first design director of the MIT Press and a founding faculty member of MIT's Media Lab, designed the MIT Press colophon in 1965. The iconic colophon has been acquired by The Museum of Modern Art in 2023.

      The commission had originally been offered to Paul Rand (o Eye Bee M logo fame) in 1962, but when he turned down the offer, he suggested they offer it to Cooper.

    1. When I did, I tried to see beyond the museum’s opulence to appreciate the nearly invisible hands of the Black laborers who made the Carroll family’s comfort and prosperity possible.

      It would be interesting to commission a sculpture of several human forms, perhaps fashioned in clear acrylic, glass, or some other translucent material, to represent the invisible nature of these slaves in an effort to make them visible in the present and while still making a dramatic and more visible statement about their (and millions of others') invisible nature with respect to the historical record.

    1. Inbreker Van Gogh: ‘Ik zat ondergedoken bij Patrick Kluivert’

      FROM WIKINEWS: [Patrick Kluivert ontkent onderdak te hebben geboden aan Durham Naar navigatie springenJump to search Klik hier om zelf een nieuwsartikel te schrijven. 21 maart 2017<br> Voetballer Patrick Kluivert ontkent stellig de geruchten dat hij in Barcelona onderdak zou hebben geboden aan Octave Durham ("Okkie"), de man die in 2002 twee schilderijen uit het Van Gogh Museum ontvreemdde en op dat moment op de vlucht was. Durham zelf is met dit opmerkelijke verhaal gekomen, dat vanavond in een speciale aflevering van Brandpunt wordt uitgezonden. De Brandpunt-documentaire is gemaakt door misdaadjournalist Vincent Verweij.

      “Een vriend van mijn was Patrick Kluivert – een gabber uit de buurt. Ik kwam Patrick tegen in Barcelona. Ik zei dat ik door de politie gezocht werd, maar ik zei niet dat het voor die Van Goghs was. En toen zei hij: ‘Waarom zit je de hele tijd in een hotel? Waarom blijf je niet bij mijn thuis?’ Ik zei: ‘Als ze mij bij jou pakken, kom je in alle kranten van de wereld’. Hij zei: ‘Dat kom ik toch al.’ (Citaat van Durham uit de documentaire)

      Kluivert noemt het hele verhaal pure onzin, en overweegt Durham aan te klagen wegens smaad en laster."

      What an interesting idea for an exhibit!

      The four missing volumes of Prisoner Books listing the arrests of more than 30,000 people between 1905 and 1918 include the "crimes" of labour leaders Jim Larkin (seditious conspiracy), James Connolly (incitement to crime), revolutionary Maud Gonne MacBride (defence of the realm), and suffragette Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington (glass-breaking with other suffragettes).

      LIFE IN DUBLIN in the early 20th century was tough, especially given the huge class divide. However, it was also a time of remarkable change. Newly-released digitised Dublin Metropolitan Police records show us what life was like from 1905 to 1918. The records cover some of Dublin’s major historical events, including the 1913 Lockout, the 1916 Rising and its aftermath. Over 30,000 people were arrested during this period and these details are all contained in the records.

    6. PULSE, 1916. http://www.broadsheet.ie/2016/05/11/fingers-on-the-pulse-of-1916/

      The Dublin Metropolitan Police (DMP) Prisoners Books for 1905-1908 and 1911-1918 are amongst the most valuable new documents to come to light on the revolutionary decade.

      They include important information on social and political life in the capital during the last years of the Union, from the period of widespread anticipation of Home Rule, to the advent of the 1913 Lockout, the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, the Easter Rising and its aftermath in 1916, and including the conscription crisis of 1918.

      They will also be invaluable to those interested in criminology, genealogy, and family history.

      The collection comprises of four large leather bound, double ledger volumes containing hand written entries that record the details of daily charge sheets issued by DMP members to offenders or alleged offenders.

      Each volume contains the name, age, address, occupation, alleged offence and, in most cases, outcome of cases involving over 30,000 people arrested by the DMP.

      Each volume also contains an index of prisoners with references to the pages containing details of the charge. The information in these volumes serves, therefore, to provide new perspectives on life in Dublin during a time of war and revolution.
