"BLANKNESS IS NOT A VOID"
CURATED BY GARDAR EIDE EINARSSON
17.11.-18.12.2005

-----


“The psychological problem […] is how he that says No and does No to an unheard-of-degree, to everything to which one has so far said Yes, can nevertheless be the opposite of a No-saying spirit”

Friedrich Nietzsche, ”Ecce Homo"


“[A] Dionysian “Yes” is a Yes that knows how to say “No”, and can put negation in the service of the force of affirmation.”

Alenka Zupancic, ”The Shortest Shadow”


“At first you may find it strange
But do not go away
The darkness holds a power
that you won’t find in the day”

The Damned, ”Wait for the Blackout”
