About PixelHELPER Foundation


Who are the PixelHELPER ?

The PixelHELPER Foundation fights with unusual resources against social grievances . Often, light projectors of driving cars are projected onto international messages from light art cartoons. This form of political protest has already been used against the surveillance projects of the NSA , arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia or animal rights . Often, the participating artists are cutting-edge technology & amp; All satire tools to put problems in the focus of the media coverage. The focus of our work is on human rights, in particular the release of political prisoners & amp; States which violate the Geneva Convention on Human Rights. Undeterred by the noise of the world , we go our calm and safe fearless threats, High goals in mind to protect the earth. The basic conviction is that the principles of the French Revolution “ Freedom, equality fraternity ” are needed to fight the repetition of political indifference. Our SelfJustice of Art offers all possibilities for sustainable change within society.

““Through its work, PixelHELPER joins art and political campaigns to create its own revolution.”

says Germany Radio Culture / Deutschland Radio Kultur

 

“PixelHELPER is one of the most innovative political incubators of action art and represents an advanced form of this art. Art must trigger pain, provoke, and rebel. It is about art as a form of social self-assurance in the spirit of the Enlightenment. Our campaigns show the possibilities of of art as the fifth power in a country. Art is therefore not a mirror of reality, but a hammer which enacts positive change.


4 #HumanRights #freeraif

For 4 years, the blogger #RaifBadawi sits in prison. @PixelHELPER fight for his release. With Sheikh, Bagpipes, Tragebahre & Lichtprojektor against tyrants. Light projection at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia. We can not do anything, and we can say nothing can be done. Or we can go on and then we can say at least: “We have done our best.” The Saudis are still among the most important customers of German armaments companies. With the approval of the Federal Government, German arms and armaments are also supplied to dictatorships and authoritarian regimes such as Saudi Arabia. This can not go on like this. We want to put an end to the business of death.

We recognize opportunities.

We learn. We play. We develop ideas. We get ideas from the darkness. We use the contrast. We make it spectacular, or we let it disappear. We focus the view. We establish connections. We work in the shadows. We look for the light while asking why. We give answers. We offer our perspective. We make accusations. We play with the sparks of light of our innermost being. We carry these sparks out to the world. And we say: We are the PixelHELPER.

Go out and prove yourself.

The PixelHELPER cube went around the world.

Solving the Rubik’s Cube in 80 Days around the World,” a project by PixelHELPER supporter Nuseir Yassin, demonstrated how people around the world are connected. The Rubik’s Cube created a literal fraternal chain of humanity around the world, while the PixelHELPER Live Stream Crowdfunding App aims to achieve that chain virtually.

Throughout life, we leave many traces. It is possible that we passed through the lives of others, and influenced them so strongly, that their lives took a different and more positive turn.

 

We fight with passion for a better world.

PixelHELPER operates the world’s first Live Stream Crowdfunding App – PixelHELPER TV, available in the Android App Store. The app connects to the PixelHELPER TV website and makes it possible for supporters around the world to see first-hand how their donations are being used to help those in need.

With the 2014 start of the Live Stream Crowdfunding App, PixelHELPER strives to create a revolution of humanity. No other organisation is so involved with light projections as a form of social action as PixelHELPER, which results in significant media attention. In 2015, PixelHELPER brought nation-wide attention in Germany overnight through a light installation on the Federal Ministry of Defense exposing the Dr. Oetker Company’s significant involvement in the sale of weapons.

From the Rainbow

“Democracy” written on a rainbow flag version of the national flag of Saudi Arabia on their embassy in Berlin. PixelHELPER calls on the Saudi people to rise up and revolt against the absolute monarchy. Gays and lesbians fear for their lives in Saudi Arabia. It is not in the interest of the people to bow to the despotic methods of the ruling family. We are using a light caricature to appeal to the German Parliament to stop any further arms exports to Saudi Arabia. The rainbow cat is on our side. PixelHELPER calls on the Saudi regime to resign and allow for free democratic elections. We will do everything possible to support the revolution in Saudi Arabia. Our basic belief is that of the principles of the French Revolution: “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.” These beliefs are need again to fight against political apathy and to bring freedom to the Saudi people.

Emergency Winterboxes for the homeless

Winter is approaching and homeless people need our help. Our solution: The PixelHELPER “Emergency Anti-Freezing Capsule” so that people won’t freeze on Germany’s streets. Each year, less Germans are killed by aircraft crashes than by the cold. In Germany, there are more than half a million homeless people outside the social security network. People are still kicked out of their houses into negative temperatures and then freeze miserably. Besides, in Germany, the problem of homelessness itself is not touched any further. Here is where our reintegration program for the homeless wants to act. In order to protect the homeless from a death that is extremely easy to prevent, starting with cold trap capsules, we build a system that tackles the basic problems of homelessness, i.e. lack of security, no job opportunities and social alienation; thus, allowing the people little by little to return to a normal Life.

Turkey: Free Elections and Erdogan’s resignation

The freedom of the speech is acutely threatened in Turkey. Since the coup attempt in July 2016, the Turkish government has vehemently opposed any anti-government journalist or media. This is exacerbating the already tense situation in the Turkish media. The passports of journalists are confiscated, authors are imprisoned. Over 130 media houses have already been closed, including 29 book publishers who have also been expropriated. Publicists and publishers are fearing for their existence. The abolition of the immunity of the Turkish deputies is just another step on the road to dictatorship. PixelHELPER is frightened by the similarity with the empowerment law of 1933. We are worried about our friends and artists in Turkey who are at the mercy of this system.

PixelHELPER supports the Schwarmhilfe project “Zombies without Borders”!

Humanism as an interactive experience in the livestream, control the distribution via the emoticons in Facebook. The project Zombies without Borders sees itself as an interactive aid swarm platform. The name is the derivative of a number of zombie computers that are controlled externally. We wear white lab coats and are not made up like zombies. Our aspiration is nothing less than a solution to all humanitarian catastrophes by interactively helping viewers through the livestream. Our goal: 24-hour livestream from the focal points of the world. Accompanying reporters in the war zones, relief supplies in the refugee camp or pacifist hunting poachers in the Kruger National Park, the possibilities our swarm control are boundless. Our tool: The emotionicons of Facebook control the aid swarm and decide what is done.
