Poem: Art and Fear

by Debi

Aesthetics and politics
unappealing principles

Contemporary art and the politics of human silence
creative departure
silence on trial
aesthetics of disappearance
foraging and transforming
creative practices and sensibilities
imagination and cultural meaning
signs and silence

Contemporary aesthetics and modern ethics
the artistic suppression of sympathy
the everyday craving for murder
the totalitarianism of unquestioning belief
mass mediated nihilism
mass mediated despair
