I ascribe to Mark Twain’s theory that the last person who should be President is the one who wants it the most. The one who should be picked is the one who should be dragged kicking and screaming into the White House. Bill Hicks

Trump diary

A visual dialogue about empty shells, which in former times have once been men. Today, only fury, chauvinismus and a memory of their ability to serve and fight, keeps them upright. But that is not their fault alone. The reason lies rather in modern life, which offers no longers real habitats for small male fish.  If you love to react, send me your visual expression.

Athens diary

It´s a open secret, that the Greek way of life is not very powerful in terms of strait business. But who would guess, that exactly this may be his strength? Of corse, a nation witch this story (2500 years Homer, Sophocles, Aristotle, Hippocrates, and Pythagoras among the sandals) must have negotiated the meritocracy and be focused on the good life. Everything else would be a miserable failure. A visual dialogue on universal anthropological achievements in the Greek / oriental habits. If you love to react, send me your visual expression.

Before I came to Athens in 1995, I read at the request of my grandmother Henry Miller’s essayist report “The Colossus of Maroussi”. The book became a guid experience, because Miller expressed, viewing his homeland USA, the lifestyle of people who were mainly subjected to economic functions and smashed this image powerfull into a mirror of present, love and transience – like he found it in greece. Really very readable.

The Colossus of Maroussi is an impressionist travelogue, written in 1939 and first published in 1941 by Colt Press of San Francisco. As an impoverished writer in need of rejuvenation, Miller travelled to Greece at the invitation of his friend, the writer Lawrence Durrell. The text is inspired by the events that occurred. The text is ostensibly a portrait of the Greek writer George Katsimbalis, although some critics have opined that is more of a self-portrait of Miller himself. Miller considered it to be his greatest work.

Damn, the fascist break is over

When the bourgeoisie sees that power is slipping out of its hands, it brings up fascism to hold onto their privileges. Buenaventura Durruti

peleponnes

Fascism is itself less ‘ideological’, in so far as it openly proclaims the principle of domination that is elsewhere concealed. Theodor Adorno

Is the so-called lack of love, as Adorno said in the film, in fact a characteristic of every human being, quite without exception?  What happened, if love seeds love, but cold seeds cold? Could be the technocratic society an expression of love at all? A visual dialogue about the return of the pendulum. If you love to react, send your visual expression.

It is really a strange passion when someone uses all his energy to set barbed wire boundaries behind which freedom, love or even reason must end. What may be the wish behind it??
