Mark von Schlegell: Simone Azul

THE PAPIER collé

AS PART OF THE »PAPIER collé SIMONE WEIL« WE INVITED WRITERS AND ARTISTS TO SHARE THEIR IDEAS ON SIMONE WEIL. SOME BITS AND PIECES, SOME MATERIAL, THOUGHTS… TRACES AND LINES THAT REVOLVE AROUND THEIR READING OR RESEARCH. LIKE A SUNDAY STROLL THROUGH AN IMMATERIAL-IMAGINATIVE LIBRARY. LIKE A BORGES READING MACHINE THAT UNENDINGLY COMES TO LIFE: FLOATING, RATTLING, NEVER ARRIVING AT A FINAL POINT WHERE ALL IS FIXATED, SAID AND READ.
