How the Fish Rots

That is : from the head!

Amidst all the hysterical and self-serving post-Brexit commentary squeezed out like cheap vinyl caulk from the various tubes of the mainstream media, we discovered a sensible, accurate analysis from the Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald, excerpted below. Images are from the gallery of Eli Levin.

A Chasm in the Present

As we continue to explore the rich philosophical overtones within the subtle and complex thought of Giorgio Agamben, we came across an interview on the Verso website. We pick up the thread following Agamben’s suggestion that humanity, always a work in process, must measure itself against the past through an archeological scrutiny of religion and law.

The images are from the hand and eye of the tremendously undervalued Eli Levin, an artist once thrown out of art school for his refusal to accept the sovereignty of abstraction. Strangely, he insisted on painting and drawing what he saw.
