Temples of the absurd

“[…] la macchina artistica gira oggi a vuoto, ma la parvenza di un movimento riesce ad alimentare, spero per non molto tempo ancora, quei templi dell’assurdo che sono i musei di arte contemporanea. Abbandoniamo la macchina artistica al suo destino.”

“[…] nowadays the art machinery is going around in circles; but the appearance of movement is still able to power – hopefully not for much longer – those temples of the absurd, the museums of contemporary art. Let us leave the art machinery to its fate.”

— Giorgio Agamben, 2012
