Hamlet, representation, lies and power betrayal simulacra revenge through out art ..... Berlin 2008 at BallHouse Ost



Is a question of power
power it self must be
abolished ---- and not
solely because of the
refusal to be dominated
which is at the heart of
all traditional struggles--
but also, just as
violently,
in the refusal to dominate.
intelligence cannot , can
never be in power
because
intelligence consist
of this double
refusal
power has ransacked
all of the strategies
of simulation :
parody,
irony,
and self mockery ------
leaving the left
with only a phantom
of the truth
the terms
"simulacrum"
"simulation"
and "virtual"
summarise this liquidation
in which every
signification is eliminated
by its own sign, and the
profusion of signs parodies
a by now unobtainable reality. Jean Baudrillard

























is a question
of identity
ethics morals principles
values
belief
politics
education upbringing
training
format
shape
self-esteem inspiration
society romanticism
privileges aesthetics
structures territories
power
will
limitations
electiveness
artifices conventions
language
settings
addictions discourse
behaving
choices
doubting confusion
