Karl Marx (1867): “Without doubt, machinery has greatly increased the number of well-to-do idlers”. Illustration in VICE by Jenny Hirons. Incredibly appropriate quote for tumblr; Twitter; my life in general.
Jacques Rancière (2009): “You must not go towards equality, but must start from equality. Starting from equality does not presuppose that everyone in the world has equal opportunities to learn, to express their capacities. That’s not the point. The point is that you have to start from the minimum equality that is given”. Illustrated in VICE by Jenny Hirons.
Michel Foucault (1966): “As the archeology of our thought easily shows, man is an invention of recent date. And one perhaps nearing its end. […] One can certainly wager that man would be erased, like a face drawn in the sand at the edge of the sea”. Illustrated from VICE by Jenny Hirons.
Elaine Scary (2001): "Permitted to inhabit neither the realm of the ideal nor the realm of the real, to be neither aspiration nor companion, beauty comes to us like a fugitive bird unable to fly, unable to land". Illustration from VICE by Jenny Hirons.
