    Because, of course, the worst troll is the one that lives in your head. It’s the voice that tells you you’re not good enough, that you suck, and that you’ll never amount to anything. It’s the voice that told me I’d never write another good word after becoming a father. It is one thing to have the troll in your brain, it is another thing to have a stranger hold a megaphone up to it and let it shout.
    Note: Sobre trolls.

  • Eduardo shared from Breakfast with Lucian by Geordie Greig
    Poetry was an important stimulus, reinforcing his imagination, almost like a litany, a substitute for religion. He learnt it, declaimed it and was comforted by it. He told me how he used to invent little rhymes to distract his children from the boredom of sitting for him.
    Note: Lucian Freud e a poesia.

    AWW: The blog is the modern drawing. Whatever I say there could be seen as part of my work. It gives the most information: it shows my complete surroundings.
    Note: O blog enquanto desenho. Por Ai Weiwei.

    ADH I think my advice would probably not change very much; it is to look and look and look, and then to look again, because nothing replaces looking. Art is all about looking—it may not be all about what you see on the surface, so it’s all the more important that you have to look deeper and as you look you are obviously thinking. I am not being, in Duchamp’s words, “only retinal,” I don’t mean that. I mean to be with art—I always thought that was a wonderful phrase of Gilbert and George’s, “to be with art is all we ask.”
    Note: Anne de Harnoncourt sobre curadoria de arte.

    The country was going through a long period of military dictatorship, which got worse from 1968.

    But isn’t this one of the more important functions of museums, to kill things, to finish them off, to give them the authority, and thus distance them from people by taking them out of their real everyday context? Even over and above the will of the actors involved with any given museum, I think the structure of museums tend toward this kind of activity: historicization. It is sort of a cemetery for art—I think I must have heard this somewhere—the heaven for dead useless objects.
    Note: Seth Siegelaub sobre o papel dos museus: matar as coisas.
