A nice essay that I found

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:

Landscapes Of Emergency

“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.
