„In Moscow you sit in a huge room at a
restaurant; you know no one and no one knows you,
and at the same time you don't feel a stranger. .
. . But here you know everyone and everyone knows
you, and yet you are a stranger -- a stranger. .
. . A stranger, and lonely, . . .“
Anton Tschechow, 1901
“After a night's sleep the news is
as indispensable as the breakfast. "Pray tell me anything new
that has happened to a man anywhere on this globe"—and he
reads it over his coffee and rolls, that a man has had his eyes
gouged out this morning on the Wachito River; never dreaming the
while that he lives in the dark unfathomed mammoth cave of this
world, and has but the rudiment of an eye himself. “
David Thoreau, 1854
es das Schicksal der Kunstrevolutionen, dass diese mit einem Programm
beginnen und mit Ästhetik enden, d.h. Frieden mit derjenigen Ordnung
machen, zu deren Veränderung sie antraten."
– Richard Paul Lohse, 1984
“There is no end result. There is only disorientation or the unknown. It's an equation that folds out on itself again and again. X + Y does not equal something. It doesn't equal infinity either. It just mutates into another question.”
