Jannis Marwitz & Raphaela Vogel “ROD” at Kantine, Brussels

Debates appear as disputes among equals, but they are never equal. There are then meta-debates about this. Instead of letting observation (science, experiments) be observed (by so-called second-order observers), it has to be about concrete perspective distortions, as society and the animal kingdom (and this as a reservoir of allegories for those) have plenty to offer. Frogs (Aristophanes, Marwitz) and birds (Lactantius, Vogel) are particularly significant in this respect. However, since they were previously lost to fables, comedies and other edifying narratives, i.e. to linearity, the false impression had to be created that the distortions of the ever-concrete perspectives take place in a world where there are developments, tragedies, laughter and also the happy ending. What matters, however, is to finally grasp the line of the narrative as a pole and to straighten it up in order to realise that above and below will never add up to the narrative. Then you have to cut it down. The pole.
