n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.

I’ve always rejected being understood. To be understood is to prostitute oneself. I prefer to be taken seriously for what I’m not, remaining humanly unknown, with naturalness and all due respect.

Marc Bousquet: “Most of the academic bullies I know are ‘nice’ people. Not just because they expect others to ‘be nice’ even while oppressed or abused, but because they understand the usefulness of niceness in manipulating others. Generally this behavior is co-morbid with reflexive defenses of institutional and professional authority, reserving critique for professionally conventional, safe targets.”


7.  Because poets and artists make a promise to the wealthy that their antagonism, their “unorthodox or anti-establishment political or social viewpoints,” will not in fact be expressed as antagonism at all, but instead as nice things: art and poetry.
8.  Because poets and artists, despite marginalization and poverty, will not attack the wealthy, but instead make nice things for them.

Ann Demeulemeester spring / summer 1999

How can I make a collection from painter’s canvas? That was the basic question behind the summer 1999 collection. This favourite material, which she had already used for invitations, displays and even tables, was ‘translated’ into an almost exclusively white collection. The shapes, developing further on those she started for the Winter 1998-99 collection, were conceived from what Ann Demeulemeester describes as ‘zero base’.
