Where There Was Fabrik, There Shall Be Factory

Gesetzt wir hätten als Menschen produziert: Jeder von uns hätte in seiner Produktion sich selbst und den anderen doppelt bejaht. Ich hätte 1. in meiner Produktion meine Individualität, ihre Eigentümlichkeit vergegenständlicht und daher sowohl während der Tätigkeit eine individuelle Lebensäußerung genossen, als im Anschauen des Gegenstandes die individuelle Freude, meine Persönlichkeit als gegenständliche, sinnlich anschaubare und darum über allen Zweifel erhabene Macht zu wissen. 2. In deinem Genuß oder deinem Gebrauch meines Produkts hätte ich unmittelbar den Genuß, sowohl des Bewußtseins, in meiner Arbeit ein menschliches Bedürfnis befriedigt, also das menschliche Wesen vergegenständlicht und daher dem Bedürfnis eines andren menschlichen Wesens seinen entsprechenden Gegenstand verschafft zu haben, 3. für dich der Mittler zwischen dir und der Gattung gewesen zu sein, also von dir selbst als eine Ergänzung deines eigenen Wesens und als ein notwendiger Teil deiner selbst gewußt und empfunden zu werden, also sowohl in deinem Denken wie in deiner Liebe mich bestätigt zu wissen, 4. in meiner individuellen Lebensäußerung unmittelbar deine Lebensäußerung geschaffen zu haben, also in meiner individuellen Tätigkeit unmittelbar mein wahres Wesen, mein menschliches, mein Gemeinwesen bestätigt und verwirklicht zu haben.
 Unsere Produktionen wären ebenso viele Spiegel, woraus unser Wesen sich entgegenleuchtete.

Ideally, you meet an institution that does not even exist. To carry art to Berlin? I owls (Jandl). Since one may also put the work in a state that is so yet no one ­ which is not to be confused with popular so­called post­ Dadaistischem wink. Commonplaces, to me, are not preconceptions, but, as the name implies, places where one idea about the world of another is encountered. (Édouard Glissant)
But even then, and not even in the industrial age, these machines led to the liberation of the slaves, but instead to the extension of the working days and the strengthening of the dependence of the workers on the employers, as Marx said: “Therefore the strange phenomenon in the History of modern industry, that the machine throws all moral and natural barriers of the working day over the heap. Hence the economic paradox that the greatest means of shortening working­ time is turned into the most infallible means of transforming all the life­time of the worker and his family into disposable labor­time for the realization of capital. “. (Eva Kernbauer, see supplement to mill monument)

It was said to be “inappropriate but true to scale”, from the infinite divisibility of LANGUAGE HABENS the event of LANGUAGE BEING is to be closed, whose (divisibility) is questionable. Is a practice of meaning so the art, a supposedly banal statement. The constancy around the works is known to us, drives us to the language, drives us on the exchange to, and let’s hang on to enjoy: we are in uncertainty weighing (one can also assume evergreen “Wiewirwurden­ waswirsind” in the title­lade). Or, “in good company / exhibition” ­ once again aims at this threshold, which is to be transgressed in any process of meaning, whereby possibly the movement over it, which is most likely to be worked on before and on the threshold ­ by means of a Kind of methodical production of a piece of world (yes, the world itself, not the card). In short, “the good and the beautiful” were expected ­ the unspoken “truth” was given a golden glow!

For a little art 1) It haunts our heads, even more than they would do beings, locally and in time: the life form. How could she become a ghost, so far away from what she means: life ­ in shape? Here in the letter, so close to the term, you under­cheer the as a something for which it was also called damaged. In spite of everything, is “committed” the best, best? Life? How now? Seek the daily encounter. Produce. Pathos of presence. Where only in the imagination … where only in the imagination? It quickly becomes fragmentary; that is bearable and can not be found in the rounded aphoristic format. Imagine: an open life. First, make inventory again. To start again: to imagine an encounter! Just let it be ­ but activity was overestimated? Let the other one be and also promote? The lust of presumption can be appreciated. At least, so to speak, immediate experience can be appreciated: as a way to make a start again. So: you could start again. Feel it? In the best sense hybrid makes clear, open, feel? Just do not coquet with the paradox, but the complexity of the loop, loop meet. Basically mythical? How fascinated is negativity and lack? Where it would be outside: the life to get in shape. Involved? Involved. The thought there.
