Paris Street Art 2013/14
Everywhere in the modern world there is neglect, the need to be recognized, which is not satisfied. Art is a way of recognizing oneself, which is why it will always be modern. (Louise Bourgeois)
As I arrived quite late on Wed evening it was getting dark as I walked to my pension so I didn’t take many photographs. I emerged super early to walk around before going to a work appointment at 9am. The brass plaques were pointed out to me in the evening as ‘stumbling stones’ an innovative private art project to document all the Jews who used to live in buildings in Berlin who were deported and killed. As it was it turned out I was staying at a once predominately Jewish district.
I’m off for a few days to Berlin – It is a work trip so probably won’t see that much. The preparations seem to be particularly ardious this time around. That list of things that must be done. I’ve been tramping the streets in search of euros, travel insurance, summer cardi, extremely long circular needles to knit a shawl on…. Now am just trying to straighten the house before I go.
