Jan Verwoert – “Reality”
Reality gets ever more fragile. As a context, reality is never just given. Reality needs to be negotiated, as a social, spiritual, political, historical occurrence. Reality is based on trust. Where trust dies, society dies, and reality dies with it. It’s replaced with the power to instil fear in others, and steer such fear to gain more power, so as to instil still more fear, and so on. Fear isolates. Reality connects. Reality resists fear. One many levels, in many modes, under many signs. Reality is multi-layered and at least 5 dimensional. Art is a poly-connector between multidimensional beings (humans included), temporalities (past futures live on) and spaces (spheres, cosms, macro as micro), it works on many levels. It is an ancient key in which to achieve reality communally. Like reality, art cannot exist without trust. How to inspire trust when fear rules? In which key, mode, or manner, by way of which art and politics, under what star, in which spirit or sign?
