"Globalisation is a concept which in a word describes an
elevated number of phenomena and has thus become one of those
vacuous concepts which can describe everything and nothing.
It is a kind of "empty sign", which nevertheless gets our
imaginations working. We live globalisation as a "condition".
We all know that we are in the middle of a far-reaching and
fatal process of transformation which is changing our position
and the values with which we had tried to understand and explain
the world. This "condition" is manifested as something which
consists of all the old polarities, forcing us into extreme
facts and interpretations. We have to decide whether to give
ourselves up entirely to the new and unknown or violently
defend our old values and concepts. In spite of the many theories
and forecasts, famous philosophers and thinkers, artists and
the "common" people have talked about "this condition" in
very simple and naive terms. Every declaration about globalisation
needs a good dose of courage and creativity, because the knowledge
of this phenomenon has not yet been canonised. We are dealing
with a very stimulating moment in art. When it comes to globalisation,
we are all artists."
