Drawing (521) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP
"Gates of Heavenly Peace grant direct access to the opposite, sometimes also via detours. Politics preaches this in its deeds. Soldiers stand in line in the goal of a soccer field in China, the site of a mass execution for the purpose of educating the people, which the Stalinist alehouse politicians also praise as a necessity. Another picture of nature: clouds and their shadows over an agricultural landscape in the Midwest of the US, 1998. A squashed landscape, tracks across fields form swastikas that can be recognized very clearly. In reality, everything comes together that does not belong together. The staff of the real and their melodies become exhausted in attempts to illustrate humanity. Would Madonna be able to reinvent herself once more? One wishes she could. It is also good to know that she would be able to. Strength considers nothing to be beneath itself, the networks declare their infinity. Drifting clouds. Their shadows and that of the airplane in which we crash, over potatoland. We have lost our market niche." (From: Black Blocks, Cinema Scope #46, 2011).
