THE TIME OF APPROXIMATE COMMUNICATION or REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO THE WORD REVOLUTION
Can we venture to call things
by the right, exact names?
(The Book of Sighs, March 2, 2005)
FREEDOM-the illusion of freedom,
the magic formula of freedom, that is the leitmotif of this epoch. It
includes the American dream as well as ascetic traditions. The whole phenomenon
of so-called contemporary art is just a fight, a struggle, a longing for
freedom from convention, routine, craftsmanship, pattern, repetition,
scheme, and social and business mechanisms. But the latter always come
back, stronger, fully recovered after lost battles to overtake (again).
The whole phenomenon of contemporary art is just one little part of the
mania. The longing for freedom is the backbone of the whole movement of
art nowadays. It is the power beyond the searching for new styles or languages.
To forget, be reborn, divorced from the past. To wake up with a shiny
new genetic code.
If everybody is part of everybody
else, or if you can say that everybody is God or everybody is the Devil,
you can easily say that everybody is Martin Zet. The problem is that not
everybody is aware of it.This is the beginning of my dissolution within
society, the starting point of a chain reaction leading to a situation
in which everybody-every child, every woman, every man-will be aware of
being (itself, herself or himself) Martin Zet, and this will become more
important than all other qualities. More than colour, nation, politics,
race, religion (in alphabetical order), and so on. Hopefully this is the
way to human brotherhood
.And this is only the first step. The movement
must then spread to everything: animals, plants, planets, galaxies, universes.
Everybody from history and in the present, every person from Ovid's Metamorphosis,
from mythologies, theologies, fairy tales (in the same way as when I read
about them), every stone, every verse in the universe will be Martin Zet
fighting for the freedom of Martin Zet. In short, beautiful! Then I can
retire, which means at the very least freedom from work.
And one word: REVOLUTION!
There are words and colours which everybody wants to appropriate. Words, which in the eyes and ears switch on the mechanisms changing and strengthening resoluteness. Red is a colour of the Communist and also the Republican party; revolution changes society into a communist and also into a capitalistic one.
But words need translations, contexts. Red - it's something else. It itself has the hypnotic power. And it is from all the colours the freest, the most unbounded one. On photographs or film and video recordings it likes to overflow the edges determined for it by reality; it likes to absorb its own shades and create flat surfaces - in a similar way to the structuring of red societies.
REVOLUTION! What it represents definitely deserves the right name, the more exact name, the name which would express what it is really about - looking from the point of view of the time / epoch. Let's not offend what it represents by having too much cowardice to change this inexact expression into the new word, similar sounding but much more fitting: REOVULATION! From now no more revolution, but REOVULATION!
This moment is the moment! MOMENT FOR FERTILIZING! If we miss this chance, we will have to wait for ages! Now this is the right moment to ask about freedom. Are we free? Am I free? Is Martin Zet free? Free Martin Zet!
What is your name? (coming to the people and screaming alone and together with them):
Are you free? Is
Is Martin Zet Free?

The times mature
The time is ready
His life is full
The soul and technology
Let's wake up,
Let make him stop
It is possible
Let's wish that this
"Oh moment, stay bit longer,"
