death / theme
Since it's both a construct and the ultimate reality, death encompasses many gestures: it beckons, looms, threatens, frightens, enrages, transforms, annihilates. It is quintessentially passive and yet always in action; a potential present that forcefully exists in the past and in the future. It is nothing, and overwhelmingly too much.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
