I accidentally sumbled upon this little gem my cousin Nigel sent me back in 2007 in an email shortly after I had moved to Berlin:
"Joseph Conrad once wrote that his purpose as a novelist was simply "to make you see." According to Viktor Shklovsky -- the influential Russian formalist critic of the 1920s and '30s -- our daily, automatic routines leach all the freshness from existence, so that we no longer experience the wonder of the people and life around us. Art's purpose, consequently, is to "defamiliarize" the familiar, to shake up our dulled perceptions, to reinvest the dingy, gray and arthritic universe with richness, color, vitality."
Michael Dirda, THE WASHINGTON POST Book Review 2.3.2007"
on that note it is with great pleasure that I announce my participation in the CHROMoos Art Festival at Das Moosdorf, Berlin.
it is going to be incredible.
