"(...) Pero por supuesto que quiero todo como un hombre en un mundo de hombres, quiero desafiar la ley. De frente. No dando vueltas, no pidiendo disculpas. Quiero obtener más de lo que me habían prometido al principio. No quiero que me callen. No quiero que me expliquen lo que puedo hacer. No quiero que me abran la carne para hacerme agrandar los pechos. (...) No quiero huir del conflicto para no revelar mi fuerza y tomar el riesgo de perder mi feminidad." 👆 Chiquitito y trangresor. Desconcertante, aveces.
This piece is one of @dariahlazatova 's and I love EVERYTHING this artist does and am going to cover my walls with her imagery. Plus this piece was inspired by Kate Bush and you all know how I worship her ❤️ Follow this artist!
“[Walter] Gropius opened the Bauhaus in Weimar, the German capital, in 1919. It was more than a school; it was a commune, a spiritual movement, a radical approach to art in all its forms, a philosophical center comparable to the Garden of Epicurus. Gropius, the Epicurus of the piece, was thirty-six years old, slender, simply but meticulously groomed, with his thick black hair combed straight back, irresistibly handsome to women, correct and urbane in a classic German manner, a lieutenant of cavalry during the war, decorated for valor, a figure of calm, certitude, and conviction at the center of the maelstrom.
“[…] The painter Paul Klee, who taught at the Bauhaus, called Gropius “the Silver Prince.” Silver was perfect. Gold was too gaudy for so fine and precise a man. […]
“The young architects and artists who came to the Bauhaus to live and study and learn from the Silver Prince talked about “starting from zero.” One heard the phrase all the time: “starting from zero.” Gropius gave his backing to any experiment they cared to make, so long as it was in the name of a clean and pure future. Even new religions such as Mazdaznan. Even health-food regimens. During one stretch at Weimar the Bauhaus diet consisted entirely of a mush of fresh vegetables. It was so bland and fibrous they had to keep adding garlic in order to create any taste at all. […]
“Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Lázló Moholy-Nagy, Herbert Bayer, Henry van de Velde—all were teachers at the Bauhaus at one time or another, along with painters like Klee and Josef Albers. […]”(Wolfe) Not to mention the handful of women who also taught at the school, including: Anni Albers (textile artist and printmaker), Marianne Brandt (painter, sculptor, designer and photographer), Gertrud Grunow (composer), Lilly Reich (industrial designer), and Gunta Stölzl, a textile artist and the only female Master at the school. (The textile department was regarded as “neglected” when Stölzl took over as its Director in 1926. Under her direction, the weaving workshop became the most successful and profitable of all the departments at the Bauhaus.) (Illus.—Lucia Moholy “Portrait of Walter Gropius,” c. 1930)
If you aren't a person's therapist/psychologist, it isn't up to you to decide how a person should handle their mental illness or trauma. What you should do is treat people with decency and make an effort to create a safe, considerate environment. While it's true that you can't always know everyone's triggers, if they ask you to tag them, cut the whole spiel about "the real world" and "special snowflakes". Everyone's heard it. Just have a little compassion and be helpful every now and then. Don't make people even more ashamed of their triggers than they already might be.
There's an awful lot of sh*z going on in the world. And we're going to talk about it, really soon. But to begin with, if you haven't caught this yet, let me put you in the capable hands of Tina Fey, a University of Virginia alumni, who graced SNL this weekend and had a few words to say about Donald Trump's Charlottesville comments... 💪🏽📣🍰 (link to site in bio) #tinafey#snl#weekendupdate
Lady at ice-cream shop to the lovely boy training: "smile, you'll get better tips. Besides you have a nice smile."
Me, after she leaves I give a good tip with my ice cream purchase: "because your service is great. You don't have to 'smile' to earn your tip... if roles were reversed she'd be crying 'sexual harassment'."
