The Death Of Uncool

november 26, 2009

«As people become increasingly comfortable with drawing their culture from a rich range of sources—cherry-picking whatever makes sense to them—it becomes more natural to do the same thing with their social, political and other cultural ideas. The sharing of art is a precursor to the sharing of other human experiences, for what is pleasurable in art becomes thinkable in life.»

Brian Eno

Interessant liten kommentar av Brian Eno i Prospect Magazine.

Ikke nødvendigvis enig i ‘the death of uncool’, enkelte ting er fortsatt teit uavhengig av kontekst, men enig i at kulturen viser vei for politikk, økonomi, sosiale institusjoner, etc. Kultur definerer hvem vi er, hvem vi vil være, hvor vi kommer fra og hvor vi vil hen.

Jeg Liker We English

november 23, 2009

«Simon Roberts travelled throughout England in a motorhome between August 2007 and September 2008, for this portfolio of large-format tableaux photographs of the English at leisure. Photographing ordinary people engaged in a variety of pastimes, Roberts finds beauty in the mundane; the result is an elegiac exploration of identity, attachment to home and land, and the relationship between people and place. This is the most significant contribution to the photography of England in recent years.» –Chris Boot, Publisher
