I see this crisis in a continuous way, the world is constantly in a crisis, I formulate this as ‘cultural epileptiscm’ , that is that humans tend to loose themselves into extremes, whether these being emotional or rational. The last century is exemplary for this."
"Something that was widely expected is happening, even is the acceleration of the economic crisis (and not only financial) is pressing everything against a striking evidence. Resources for culture are about to be drastically cut. And a large part of the professional setups based on public sibsides risks disappearance."
"lifestyle is in itself a part of the unavoidable speculative process of turbocapitalism, in which cool hunters understand the languages of the scenes to transform them into a banal aesthetization that can be sold for a couple of years. A lemon squeezer for cultural production where the experience of the sublime, the sense of disaster, the impact of deflagration, the elimination of the roots, the collapse of the future, disperse themselves in a sterile pantomime that is constructed in a laboratory, and makes me throw up."
