Last week’s hurricane may have passed us over, but this week promises a serious cultural deluge. This week’s BOMB Alert is a real category five, with a Tao Lin reading; Pipilotti Rist, Jackie Saccoccio, and Santiago Sierra openings; and the chance to schmooze with BOMB editors and other literati at LitCrawl and the Brooklyn Book Festival!

You’ve been waiting all winter and it’s finally here…BOMB 111, our spring issue! You can read teasers and hear audio excerpts (Patricia Clarkson, T.J. Wilcox, Charles Bernstein, Sam Lipsyte, Edgar Arceneaux) over on BOMBSITE, but you’ll have to check it out on newsstands for the real deal, which includes an eerily pixelated film still from Carlos Reygadas on the cover, Artist on Artist essays featuring Alex Hubbard, Joanna Malinowaska, and Sharon Harper, and First Proof with fiction from Rikki Ducornet, poetry by Kimiko Hahn, and art by Allen Frame. Click through for a preview.
Fans of Carlos Reygadas’ Japón and Battle in Heaven take note: there are no bird strangulations or obese people having sex in this film. Set in a Mennonite community in picturesque Northern Mexico, Silent Light is the story of a conflicted married Mennonite man, Johan (Cornelio Wall Fehr), who is in love with another woman.
