Woodstock, 1969.

"They went to a psychedelic pasture to listen to their music, to be with people who dressed like them and played like them. There was a shared bond on a cosmic scale, and their elders marveled that all these kids could be in one place for three days without violence or mayhem, despite pitifully inadequate facilities and food supplies, and despite rains that fell so long and hard they would have drowned any other party. The lesson was simple: These long-haired, antiwar bra-burners and boys with beads had created a field of dreams, and perhaps from it would rise something bright and beautiful for the future."

La Dolce Vita (1960)

Who built Thebes of the 7 gates?
In the books you will read the names of kings.
Did the kings haul up the lumps of rock?

And Babylon, many times demolished,
Who raised it up so many times?

In what houses of gold glittering Lima did its builders live?
Where, the evening that the Great Wall of China was finished, did the masons go?

Great Rome is full of triumphal arches.
Who erected them?

Over whom did the Caesars triumph?
Had Byzantium, much praised in song, only palaces for its inhabitants?

Even in fabled Atlantis, the night that the ocean engulfed it,
The drowning still cried out for their slaves.

The young Alexander conquered India.
Was he alone?

Caesar defeated the Gauls.
Did he not even have a cook with him?

Philip of Spain wept when his armada went down.
Was he the only one to weep?

Frederick the 2nd won the 7 Years War.
Who else won it?

Every page a victory.
Who cooked the feast for the victors?

Every 10 years a great man.
Who paid the bill?

So many reports.

So many questions.


Bertolt Brecht, Questions from a worker who reads [Fragen eines lesenden Arbeiters]


Marina Abramović

In nude with skeleton. Through this process, Marina gains understanding of the process of death. This is about “Facing your own mortality” as Abramovic explains, fear of pain and fear of dying. Being close to your skeleton, you are confronting your fear.

"Dalla finestra della mia stanza ora vedo col cannocchiale Mussolini: è anch’egli alla finestra, in maniche di camicia e si passa nervosamente il fazzoletto sulla fronte. Scherzi del destino! Trenta anni fa eravamo in carcere assieme, per aver partecipato attivamente all’agitazione proletaria di Forlì contro l’impresa libica, legati da un’amicizia che sembrava dover sfidare il tempo e le tempeste della vita, basata come era sull’odio comune della società borghese e della monarchia e sulla volontà di non dare tregua al nemico comune. Oggi eccoci entrambi confinati sulla stessa isola; io per decisione sua, egli per decisione del re e delle camarille di corte, militari e finanziarie, che si sono servite di lui contro di noi e contro il popolo e che oggi di lui si disfano nella speranza di sopravvivere al crollo del fascismo.
Ed ecco, stasera il destino ci riunisce nella breve cerchia di un comune destino, ma Mussolini è un vinto, è l’eroe dannunziano che, ruzzolato dal suo trono di cartapesta, morde la polvere e non c’è attorno a lui che gente che lo rinnega per volgersi verso altre mangiatoie. Noi, i suoi avversari di venti anni, i «rottami» contro i quali egli ha avventato i suoi sarcasmi, noi siamo in piedi per altre tappe, altre lotte, altri cimenti, in piedi con la dignità della nostra vita, in piedi con la fierezza della parola mantenuta, italiani senza aureola di gloria o di successo, ma dei quali si dovrà pur dire che per essi la politica fu una cosa seria. Mentre è stata per Mussolini e per i suoi niente altro che farsa e impostura."

Pietro Nenni (Diari 1943-1956)
