This is a Symphony

What shall we do, when public art becomes so vulgarly Marketable,

 

So Progressive, so Modern, so Global?

 

Set it on fire, and in doing so, create the next avant-garde:

 

The flaming wicks of Molotov cocktails will be our paintbrushes,

 

Terrifying sirens and megaphones will be our orchestras, we’ll scribe

 

New howling forms of poetry with every strike of a baton while the

 

Popping report of riot gas canisters punctuate our stanzas.

 

This is a symphony. – Rayan Castle

 

This is the point of no return – the cut – through which the before and after are forever incommensurable.

 

This is the return of beauty, the return of joy, the return of autonomia – the return of a freedom to create forms of existence that escape any attempts of capture.

 

The Revolution will be a Festival. Coming 2018.
