PAUL VIRILIO: “When a person from the right or left says this, there is a life in the moment, a life in the impact. When we say that an artist is in impact-maker, I want to say this is Futurism.  Remember that Marinetti inspired Fascism. Don’t forget that the Blitzkrieg emerged from Fascist Italian Futurism. I’m half Italian & it’s not by chance that I am sensitive to this futurisation phenomenon. We are faced here with a Futurism of the moment. I cite Paz’s extraordinary phrase, “The moment is as uninhabitable as the future.” Therefore the moment today is a masked Futurism leading to Fascism, new Fascisms which have nothing to do with pantzers, goose stepping, Mussolini or Hitler, but Fascisms linked to technical achievements, to this accident which I spoke of earlier. And this is a great threat to democracy and collective thought.”
