a process of individual museumification

roi vaara, the artist's dilemma, 1997

"the secret story is the one we'll never know, although we're living it from day to day, thinking we're alive, thinking we've got it all under control and the stuff we overlook doesn't matter. but every damn thing matters! it's just that we don't realize. we tell ourselves that art runs on one track and life, our lives, on another, we don't even realize that's a lie."
from "dentist" in last evenings on earth by roberto bolaño

also, for those interested, i found a translation of "the first infrarealist manifesto" (infrarealism was a poetry movement started by bolaño in mexico city during the 70s). rimbaud, come home!
