deconstructive / theme
Addressing a genre, a tradition, but so as to expand it, blow it open, spread it out, open its borders to its own hidden selves. A question which will not go away and produces -- not answers -- but new possibilities. Not destructive; rather, the deconstructive reveals the obscured. In a sense, then, the deconstructive is creative, productive.
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.
