The new old
Any enlightenment in art, any demystifying, critical, and conceptually vigorous movement is trailed by the highly imagistic sludge of irrationalism.
Unfortunately, this new old cultural richness, and its affiliation with an anti-normal homosexual culture of resistance, has taken on also the false functions of its irrationalist predecessors among the shadow movements. For it is adopted as a nostalgic and escapist glorification of subjectivity by today’s coddled narcissists, who stage a thoroughly conformist celebration of limitless individuality and the cuteness of an eternal sheltered and bourgeois childhood.
