lovely dinner with three lovely people,
all expressing their concerns about our “outdoor” attempts, the bus route
mentioning abuse, swearing, beatings and arrests..
a phrase stuck in mind: “with all this terror act, you’ll sure get arrested”..
which refreshed an ongoing questioning of this city’s (country’s?) priorities to its citizens:
is it all about slavework/collect/consume/shit and die?
are we ruled by a system that has repeatedly failed to understand the difference between artistic expression and terrorism?
is funding and resources allocated/distributed through a market-based network that views art as an ornamental function in its society, favoring “community” over individualism/originality, treating thus the artists as product of behaviour farms?
aphoristic all that sounds, and easily answered..
easy answers are needed in hard times..
