The musical interludes are from works in the program: The Notwist appears in Tony Cokes' Shrink! 1.1-4 (2001); gladys is the artist behind Che Vuoi; and music by Kvantum appears in Chase Manhattan (2021-22) by Dora Budor & Noah Barker. Recordings of the three events are mastered by Nelson Beer. Full program details can be found at the links below.

The mouth is a clock without hands

A city skyline is silhouetted against a pink sunset, the lights of the buildings are reflected in the water below, which looks purple. An aeroplane flies out of the frame on the top left of the image, taking off somewhere. It is a warm image, feels like summer’s coming, that feeling at dusk when the night is full of potential and we don’t know what will happen.

In the same movement reportage bears witness to the world and consumes it. It is also a technique for making equivalences out of what is irreconcilable. I keep track of the dates when important things happen as a way to remember how the past shows up today. All the while I am trying to understand how repetitions, forgetting and suspended apprehension are equally part of personal and public events, places and products.

Everything that enables us to record, witness and claim history, also enables us to miss it. The news form is fatal and always precedes the catastrophe of its daily content. Be wary when your senses are trivialised by the marching gait of development, algorithms for ‘personal preferences’ or the hegemony of the new. Grief is not objective.
