Learning to think (again)

Antony Gormley; Chocori Coffee serie (1995-1996), Learning to think (again), 1995

 

 

Decapitated and dismembered,
headless corpses,
zombies walking
as though nothing happened,
nothing of importance anyway.

Things should go on;
business as usual.

People as human beings
do not count,
they have no value
in themselves.

They should be made
to fit into the system,
cold, insensitive to
what a human being needs,
the system’s needs
are all that counts.

Chop off, dismember and adapt
till all that still remains
is hardly recognizable
as human.
Just a cog into the system’s
sacrosanct integrity.

So what?
