Rirkrit Tiravanija at Neugerriemschneider


Except Freedom can be simulated. It's simulated all the time. It might be a fundamental aspect of our world. This statement so completely vacuous as to neuter thought. Are we missing something here? Whose freedom? Of course its attributed to Stanisław Jerzy Lec, polish aphorist. He also quipped: "Satirists be careful. In the 1931 film by René Clair Vive la Liberte a song says, "Work is freedom." In 1940 the sign on the gates to Auschwitz said: 'Arbeit macht frei.'"
