    A Bunch Of Hacked Twitter Accounts Tweeted Swastikas And Turkish Propaganda

    Late last night, hackers took over hundreds of prominent Twitter accounts and started pushing tweets in Turkish that accused Holland and Germany of being Nazis. The hackers accessed the accounts, which include Forbes, Reuters Japan, Nike Spain, Starbucks Argentina, Duke University, through a third party app called the Counter, according to Gizmodo.



    A translation of the above tweet reads: "#nazigermany #nazinetherlands this is a little #ottomanslap see you on #april16 what did I write? LEARN Turkish."

    After a failed coup against him in 2016, Turkey's Erdogan is campaigning for an April 16 referendum that would rewrite parts of Turkey's constitution. Erdogan's critics say he's trying to consolidate power amidst a crackdown, and he's been publicly feuding with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and German chancellor Angela Merkel over the referendum. Both countries have tried to block his attempts to campaign with expat Turks in the Netherlands and Germany.

    Twitter said in a statement that it was aware of the hack and had responded: "Our teams worked at pace and took direct action. We quickly located the source which was limited to a third party app. We removed its permissions immediately. No additional accounts are impacted."

    Portuguese cities host crossover art and theatre festival

    More than 20 art and theatre institutions in Lisbon and Porto are participating in the inaugural Biennial of Contemporary Arts in Portugal (17*March-30 April). Capitalising on the burgeoning art scenes in the cities, the show promotes a crossover between visual and performing artists. Among the projects is a staging of Samuel Beckett’s absurdist 1957 play Endgame in a Porto monastery by the Cuban artist Tania Bruguera and a film installation at the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II in Lisbon by the Portuguese duo João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva. The event’s artistic director is John Romão.

    When will Christo’s 40-year old Mastaba happen?

    The artist Christo tells The Art Newspaper at Art Dubai that his long awaited project in the desert, The Mastaba, is still on track. For 40 years, Christo has been planning the structure. Comprising 410,000 multi-coloured aluminium barrels, it would be the largest sculpture in the world, and, unlike many of Christo’s projects, permanent.

    “My projects are about the real things,” says Christo, “The real wind. The real wet. The real dry. The real things. Not photographs. I don’t know how to use a computer. Not flat surface. Not propaganda. But the real things.”Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, 81, is in the UAE to double down on his efforts to bring his long-awaited*project to fruition and*is brimming with renewed zeal for the structure, which he first conceived for the Abu Dhabi site with his late wife and creative collaborator, Jeanne-Claude.

    Christo says*that preparation will take three years, but once done, the colossal structure itself can then be elevated in a matter of weeks, and will stand at 150 meters high, 225 meters deep (at the 60 degree slanted walls) and 300 meters wide at the vertical walls. It will consist of 410,000 multi-coloured aluminium barrels, which will recall Islamic geometric patterns, when viewed from a distance, set in an ascending form reaching a plateau of 126.8 meters wide.

    In the 1960s, Christo and Jeanne-Claude had planned a smaller version of The Mastaba to be sited between Houston and Galveston in the US, with the encouragement of the De Menil Foundation. The pair ultimately abandoned the project due to planning regulations.

    Saks Fifth Avenue Exposed Personal Info On Tens Of Thousands Of Customers


    AP/Mark Lennihan

    The personal information of tens of thousands of customers of Saks Fifth Avenue has been publicly available in plain text online, BuzzFeed News has learned.

    The online shopping site for the brand is maintained by the digital division of its owner, the Canada-based Hudson's Bay Company. Until recently, unencrypted, publicly accessible web pages on the site contained tens of thousands of records for customers who signed up for wait lists to buy products.The records included email addresses and product codes for the items customers expressed interest in buying; some also contained phone numbers. Each record also included a date and time, and one of a handful of recurring IP addresses.

    The pages, which were reviewed by BuzzFeed News in recent days, were taken offline after HBC was contacted for comment on this story. The Saks website also serves logged in customers some pages over unencrypted connections, leaving online shoppers' information vulnerable to hackers while they browse the site on an open Wifi network.

    ‘It’s magic’: curator Cecilia Alemani offers a glimpse into the Italian Pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale

    Do not expect a snapshot, thesis or panorama of today’s Italian art scene in the national pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale—but be prepared for a view of the fantastical. “I think a platform like the Biennale should be less about trying to systematise the Italian art scene and more about offering a different kind of experimental platform [for] artists,” explains Cecilia Alemani, the curator of the 2017 Italian pavilion. “It should be a space of taking risks and trying a different approach”.The curator “did not want to create a museum display, because the pavilion is not a museum, it’s not going to work in that sense,” Alemani says.

    “It’s really a place to give artists carte blanche to transform the space radically and to offer the viewer an occasion to walk into the artist’s mind.”

    Here's Jeff Bezos In A Giant Robot Exoskeleton Because 2017 Isn't A Dystopia At All

    Here's Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, evolving into his final form as a giant robot.

    Bezos tried on the robot exoskeleton at at Amazon's annual MARS conference, which covers machine learning, home automation, robotics, and space exploration.

    Hankook Mirae Technology, which created the 13-foot, 1.6-ton Method-2 roboexoskeleton that Bezos is piloting, is a South Korean robotics company. The equipment resembles several iconic robots from science fiction movies and more advanced versions could theoretically be used for interplanetary or intergalactic human exploration. Bezos is particularly interested in space science and has invested $500 million into his space exploration company Blue Origin as of July 2016.
