If The World Changed (@Art Museum)

“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.”
– Ernst Fischer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Imagine

 

A colleague and I were packing some stuff the other day, leaving behind a huge empty box on the floor.

“You know,” I reminisced, ” When we were younger, my brother and I could entertain ourselves for hours with boxes like these.”

“What? Really?”

“Yeah, we’d pretend it was a huge ship, crawl inside, and start imagining our travels.”

 

Viewing this exhibition at the Jendela Gallery also brought back more memories of childhood days, when video games were a luxury, afternoons of arts and crafts were bliss, and nothing was more powerful than the imagination our mind.

Is it any wonder that children of today seem less imaginative than before, because countless apps and video games are already doing the imagining for them?

Just another reason why the Arts are necessary in such a system and environment.
