4T 2016 ETHICS OF [RE] PRODUCTION

“Our era prefers the images to the things, the copy to the original the representation to the reality, appearance to being.” (Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity, 1857)

 

Feuerbach’s pronouncements marks the symptomatic loss at the heart of modern experience: loss of tradition, loss of the Creator, loss of a connection one formed with what one produced, and loss of a solid ground. These losses were mediated through the hopeful belief on human rationality, science and progress.
