VICTIMS OF DARFUR

“Which parts of society are exploiting this symbolic capital? Which kinds of collective memory and imaginary are at stake? Who are to benefit most (from these pictures)? Who is giving them marks of distiction? Capital value that is for the competitive market? Whose collective memory, whose aesthetics, and who benefits?”

VICTIMS OF AFGHANISTAN

As “capitalism is not a mode of production, but a production of modes and worlds” (engineered by corporations and sold to the people), the “planetary economic war is an aesthetic war between different worlds”.

Matteo Pasquinelli, in ICW – Immaterial Civil War (My creativity reader, edited by Geert Lovink and Ned Rossiter, published by the Institute of Network Cultures, Amsterdam 2007)

I would say let’s not panic because panic is our condition.
