“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Well, that was all rather incredibly splendid. Thank you thank you to my hosts Barbara Cueto and Garance Malivel. They created this impeccable structure in which I could be sawn in half, have knives thrown at me etc etc. No really it was so good! They gave me a little bowl of eyeball sized cakes while I taught the class on Friday. Just like the eyes in Blade Runner. What more could one ask for?

Somehow both events, the class and the lecture, became really poignant.

And guess what? I'm back in February with Hans Ulrich Obrist. So fortunate.
