” From the Berlin Wall to the Twin Towers, the 21st century was born out of falls. Traumatic or liberating, real or metaphorical, between crises, crashes, tsunamis, regime dismantling and bungee jumping; falling is the trend these days.. But what goes down is not always bad. Falling is not just depressing or disastrous. In the midst of tragedy, lightning bolts of truth may also come down upon us: when illusions fall away. Art tends to open breaches in the real, discreet yet effective. This is a moment in time when art is invested with purpose. We would need to conceive of the sublime for rainy days.
It is art’s power these days to epiphanize the real, its importance not only aesthetic or in its truth, but also political. By opening onto the discontent in civilization, art organizes the resistance and invites each of us to join in, making the eyewitnesses that we are question our steadiness in a world that pitches and dodges “
