Labas, I am Max Haarich, Chevalier of the Silver Garlic Bullet ordain. I combine arts and tech to explore the unthinkable.
Embassy in Munich
Munich is a beautiful place, where the future of urban life is designed. People with ideals, creativity and power are changing the way we live tomorrow. Anarchistic postcapitalist artists and cutting edge tech start-ups will create awesome shit together.
As the Ambassador to Munich I foster cooperations between arts and tech (visit our ARTS & TECH meetup!), strengthen the foreign relations with the City of Munich and care for Užupians abroad.
Special thanks to my Honorary Consuls:
Honorary Consul Roboy is the first artificially intelligent diplomat worldwide and cares for our naturalization issues.
// David Lipgens
David’s appointment became a mystery. He was ment to be entiteled “Consul Hengerherjottsfott” (named after his home area in Aachen, which literally translates “behind god’s ass”). The appointment logically must have happened somewhere between March 31st and April 2nd 2018 in Užupis. But both people involved, the Consul David Lipgens as well as the responsible Ambassador H.E. Max Haarich, strictly deny having noticed anything. According to his wish, David shall and shall not support the Embassy of the Republic of Užupis as “Schroedinger’s Consul”.
// Elena Radchenko
“Discovering the controversies of Instagram posting to assure painless application of hashtags, filters, emojis, and dog selfie lenses. Or shall I just say that I’m the coolest consul of Užupis ever elected?” You can say that :)
// Melanie Henke
Melanie is our Honorary Consul for loving Lithuania.
Melanie is Lithuanian and German; not half each but full each – and now also fully Užupian. She is currently in Lithuania spreading the word of Munich Embassy and preparing the global love revolution (with the help of Pampelmusen and coconut oil). She is studying activist, critical and performative art movements at the interface of new technologies, science and design, and will purposefully apply this knowledge to irritate strangers with unconditional smiles and love :*)
Embassy Among Blowballs
The blowball is a beautiful plant. It grows almost anywhere. It can feed us and heal us. And it can make our wishes come true. Just like Užupis :)
As the Ambassador among Blowballs I foster the exchange between the blowball community and all other imanigable and unthinkable beings in the realm of Mother Earth and Father Sky.
