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.
