Farvel Stig

Sammen med Stig og barna
Nå kommer vi til å være enda ensommere, og ydmykhet er mangelvare her i verden kjære venn.

Å skrive er å uttrykke som forbrytelse, det som ble innsatt som lov

Art in the Age of Globalization
– But once you have the information, it’s up to you what you do with it. Globalization without roots is meaningless in art. (Harald Szeemann, Here Time Becomes Space, 2001)
– Once, the task of the artist was to make good art; now it is to avoid making art of any kind. (Allan Kaprow, 1966)
– Do nothing (Masanobu Fukuoka)
– Somebody or something has confounded our language. (Rudolf Arnheim, Art and Entropy, an Essay on Disorder and Order, 1971)
– The spectacle is capital to such a degree of accumulation that it becomes an image. (Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle, 1967)
– This past, moreover, reaching all the way back into the origin, does not pull back but presses forward, and it is, contrary to what one would expect, the future which drives us back into the past. Seen from the viewpoint of man, who always lives in the interval between past and future, time is not a continuum, a flow of uninterrupted succession; it is broken in the middle, at the point where “he” stands; and “his” standpoint is not the present as we usually understand it but rather a gap in time which “his” constant fighting , “his” making a stand against past and future, keeps in existence. (Hannah Arendt, Between Past and Future, 1961)
– And I think the need – and willingness – to betray oneself is the inner flame of any creative force. If there is a major challenge, it is that of transgressing one’s own limitations, of destroying whatever concepts, superimposed or self-inflicted, may exist about who you are and what you stand for, of cultivating your doubts rather than strengthening your convictions. The importance of being uncertain, simply put. (Stig Sæterbakken, 2011) [more+]
