algo que ver con el arte y sus aledaños…// art and besides…
October 22nd, 2009
I am reading this wonderful book and wondering why I haven’t started to read this woman before?
From Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf , passing through Los desastres de la Guerra de Goya to Sarajevo or Palestinian wars.
Regarding the pain of others is a beautiful and very touching tour over the pain and the war, the photography and media in general… our regard as “educated, civilized people” to war.
From the book:
(… ) war is a man’s game, the killing machine has a gender, and it is male.
To the militant, identity is everything. (…)
Being a spectator of calamities taking place in another country is a quintessential modern experience, the cumulative offering by more than a century and half’s worth of those professional, specialized tourist, known as journalists.
