I was reading a book on Ann Hamilton (also brilliant) when I happened upon this text by art journalist Rebecca Solnit. And since it is about the best essays on art I’ve read in a long while, I want to share it with you:
“Reconnect the act of making to its sister acts of laboring, consuming, attending, the acts that make the world, over and over again. Shift from the new to the renewed; recognize the world has no lack of things, only of attending to things; shift then from production to maintenance.”
I guess noone feels the urge to start up reading group now, so close to the end of it all, but if you do find interesting texts, this could be a good forum for sharing them.
