Dark Time

“And then those questions come up.
Like was the Constitution written in invisible ink?
Has everybody here forgotten how to think?
Is this big boat starting to think?

And you thought there were things that had disappeared forever.
Things from the Middle Ages.
Beheadings and hangings and people in cages.
And suddenly they were everywhere
And suddenly they’re alright”

(Laurie Anderson: Dark Time in the Revolution)

Max Hattler: Your Highness

“I don’t want to be negative, but I always find the whole thing rather strange. Soccer is one thing, but the World Cup is something else because it takes on even more of a mass dynamic. During the World Cup period in 2006, when Germany was the host country, I returned to Germany from England and was stunned to see everyone waving their German flags and all the newspapers reporting how great it was that Germans could now finally show their national pride again. This time around, it has become even worse – police cars sporting German flags, etc. I find it rather unpleasant.”

Tacita Dean: Craneway Event (Frith Street Gallery)

“I filmed for four days—the first day it was raining and Merce just looked at the space. The next three days, the dancers came. There were pelicans everywhere, and the craneway was surrounded by glass. It was stunning light.”

Tacita Dean in Artforum
