How to get on with this? I start with a basic statement by Gene Ray talking in Greece about how modernity is questioned by the coming biospheric meltdown (and nearly continued on josh fox’s Gasland. but didn’t have time for the whole now) I step back and try to get some definitions: Are we now in the anthropocene?

This gives a kind of horizon. Well it seems to at least. But then there is the twist. The thing that comes back in very unsettling way. There is no safe point of view. It’s bound to be collective at some point. I got interested in traumas, especially of war. Since Benjamin talking about the non-experience of war. I just watched this now (in german or french, but you can hear the o-voices in english in the background): Suicidistan – The war coming home. Bringing peace and meaning in an army …

The question of the trauma, the way our minds and bodies integrate the damage appears to be a central loci to explicit and adress as far as art is concerned with experience. How do we relate to these traumas and give them way out as much as ourselves. It’s a global concern in the most material and tangible way.
