NO GUTS, NO GALAXY is a weekly series of artist-curated slideshows that expand upon the diverse subjects addressed in RAMMΣLLZΣΣ: Racing for Thunder, such as, the Downtown scene, early hip-hop and performance, Afrofuturism and cosmology, the mythology of Gothic Futurism, and the coercive power of language.
The format takes inspiration from an existing recording of a slideshow-cum-performance called RAMMΣLLZΣΣ: UNDERGROUND INNER THINKING (1987), given by the artist at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, where, in between impromptu freestyles and bouts of audience heckling, Rammellzee espoused his philosophical tenets of Gothic Futurism and Ikonoklast Panzerism. Presenters for NO GUTS, NO GALAXY include artists, photographers, writers, curators, and musicians, many of whom share a common history and personal connection with Rammellzee, or have found inspiration in the artist’s diverse, interdisciplinary output. Expect to see presentations—experimental or performative in nature—that feature personal archival materials and rare documentation.
