Labas, I am Max Haarich, Chevalier of the Silver Garlic Bullet ordain. I combine arts and tech to explore the unthinkable.

Arts will make tech innovations more accessible, more inspired, and more human-centered – for the benefit of mankind.

 

 

Embassy to 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 (check out our events!), strengthen the foreign relations with the City of Munich and care for Užupians abroad.

Special thanks to my Honorary Consuls:

// Roboy

Honorary Consul Roboy is the first artificially intelligent diplomat worldwide and cares for our naturalization issues. Inspired by Roboy’s intellect and friendliness the Minister of Foreign Affairs Thomas Chepaitis, AI-expert Alex Waldmann and me added a new article to the constitution exclusively for Munich: “Any artificial intelligence has the right to believe in a good will of humanity.” This is the first time ever that artificial intelligence is mentioned in a constitution.

// David Lipgens

David works for the Embassy as Schroedinger’s Consul.

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

Elena is our Honorary Consul for meaningless instagram photography.

“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 Lys Henke Consul Munich Embassy

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 :*)

// Ruslan Goryanyy

Ruslan works for the Embassy as our Kirschwasser Consul.

Ruslan Goryanyy

In the permanent state of chillness and un-registration, a new student was recruited to bring freshness into the smelly offices of the Embassy to Munich. Guided by seniors H.E. Ambassador Max Haarich and Schroedinger’s Consul David Lipgens, the fresh Kirschwasser Consul Ruslan Goryanyy was driven into new passion by a lot of jokes and announced a long phase of abstinence and lust. Even in difficult times when fluent fruits were in short supply, Ruslan was always ready and brought water back to the pont in dry times.

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. To promote this idea I created the first viral graffiti worldwide.

Would you like to become a citizen of Užupis?

About Ilya the Artist

Ilya Kitup 10.03.1964

  
Cocaine              Heroin
2006 ,90×75              2006 , 90×75

As can be seemed at first sight (especially if you look at pictures “Cocaine” and “Heroin”) Ilya Kitup just begins his art career. Such a teenager’s straightforwardness – I’m singing that I’m seeing. The drawn rap.

Actually Ilya arrived from Vilnius and he have already participated in exhibitions 1984, and between times have graduated from the Moscow State University at philological faculty. He also participated in exhibitions at Trehprudniy. So he is not a child.

What inspires – industry, techniques, urbanism, futurology, fantasy. Planes with the Arabian texts, barrels with oil, black roofs, yes there is a lot from everyday life, carried to an absurdity The most sincere slogans of the author seem as attempt to joke, and whether it is a joke – only Kitup knows it.

Mix of new wave and kitsch, banality and actuality, methods and plots of a caricature. Whether it concerns to graphity, (post) conceptualism, new wildness or something else, the author find difficulty in characterizing that – it is a business of critics.
