Mike Kelly & more by Linda Mussmann March 18, 2017
March 18th, 2017
Sometimes I get tired of thinking about my own thinking. So here is a quote by Mike Kelly from an article in the New York Times Oct. 12, 2013.
Mike Kelly says: “We’re living in the postmodern age, the death of the avant-garde. So all I can do now is work with this dominant culture and flay it, rip it apart, reconfigure it, expose it—because popular culture is really invisible. People are really visually illiterate. They learn to read in school, but they don’t learn to decode images.”
So Mike you have said these things and in my opinion you are right. It is very hard to know how to respond to these moments that we witness. Now it is March 18, 2017. We are even more engaged in the swamp and the morass of chaos and with an audience that is pretty much absent. Seeing is believing for the moment in these times—seeing without a critical eye is like a kind of insane blindness that has descended upon us and our nation. If this is the case we have to find the shovels of our time and start digging our way to some kind of truth. We now are in an era of lying liars. Remember this is the centennial of the Russian Revolution.
(speaking of shovels—we dig out of our own snowstorm here in Hudson, NY)
