Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Anyone here from/been to Vienna? Help finding a quote from the MUMOK.
In the Museum of Modern Kunst (MUMOK), on the floor that has the Giacometti statue and Klee paintings (fourth, from hazy memory), there is a quote printed on the wall. The English translation is â€œâ€¦beauty is nothing more than the beginning of something terrible that we can barely tolerate, and we admire it so much because it calmly refrains from destroying us.â€ The original German is alongside it.
I would love very much to know who said it. From what I remember, it was a curator writing about a significant exhibition of modern art in Vienna back in the 60s (which included photos of the Paris Commune). If anyone could help, I'd be very grateful.
