Throughout the event, performance Too expensive and not enough to eat by Sophie Yerly.
Modern science makes us understand the true character of the machine, of rationalization and of standardisation. All of that leads to one thing only: the economy. Economy attempts (is) the symmetricalisation of forces.
Art is to create inequalities.
from Yiannis Isidorou: What Asger Jorn (un)/taught me - a text of 11 positions regarding the movements and tropes of the artist in the symmetrical(ized) world of economy
