Martha Rosler made House Beautiful: Bringing the War Home in protest against the Vietnam War—at a moment when American involvement in Vietnam had nearly peaked. To make these photomontages, she seamlessly combined images of the war with advertisements and illustrations of fashionable American home interiors, many published in the magazine, House Beautiful. By bringing together images of war and domesticity so that they appear to share the same space, she references the “living room war,” a phrase coined to characterize the Vietnam War as the first major military conflict to be extensively broadcast into people’s homes on television. “The series is called House Beautiful…because it really is centered on the idea of domesticity, safety, space, and aesthetic rightness,” she has explained. “But also Bringing the War Home because I am literally bringing images of the war into spaces having to do with our domestic life.” Rosler considered these images to be agitprop, originally disseminating them as photocopied flyers at anti-war demonstrations.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres made Untitled (Perfect Lovers) at the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis in America. He had lost his boyfriend of eight years (Ross Laycock) to AIDS-related illness the same year he made this work. While Untitled (Perfect Lovers) grew out of his own experience of love, partnership, and loss, it is universal. Simple in its construction, it consists of two clocks hung side-by-side and touching on a pale blue wall. Gradually, the clocks go out of sync. This subtle, elegant presentation may be read as a metaphor for the progress of the life of a couple and the consequences of time, which can introduce disharmony, illness, and the decay of perfection into that life. “We…have to trust the viewer and trust the power of the object,” Gonzalez-Torres once said about his choice of imagery. “And the power is in simple things….It keeps thought from being opaque.”

"A song written about loving someone with depression and how difficult It can be to reach them, to make them feel loved, and how frustrating it is when they cannot find happiness. It’s about trying to make a connection, a task that often just feels impossible."

Zombiji II  
"Depression can be so disabiling, you have absolutely no energy to think, move, sleep, or take the medicine needed to get well. Depression feels like falling into a 30-foot deep grave and realizing there is no way out and that it's never going to end. It is a devastating mental, emotional, and physical hell, comparable to becoming a zombie, one of the living dead. Depression is like the death of your spirit; leaving you feeling like an empty corpse with all hope lost forever. Left untreated, the illness can get progressively worse. Your mind can then be dragged through the very gates of insanity where the voices of hell, frightening apparitions, bizarre delusions, and reality becomes an endless looney tune show playing out in your head and all around you. The mental, emotional and spiritual torment can become so overwhelming, suicide seems like a friend and a welcome way out. All the while, your loved ones may be wondering why you can't get out of bed." - Kevin Williams, bipolar sufferer

Love or War  
At times, hope in me rises,
at others, I fear what's in store.
Life is too full of surprises –
what's coming: be it love or war?
Some signs proclaim it is war:
comets, oracles, talks.
Others claim it is love:
the heart and feverish thoughts.
A comet flashes above,
headlines also do roar:
This spring will spring forth love!
Not love. Instead, it springs war!
This spring will certainly call for
much effort from the dove.
Spring, oh it springs forth war!
Not war. Instead, it springs love!
I while away troubled hours
reading the news on the trot,
plucking the petals from flowers:
He loves me... He loves me not...
Portentous, pregnant spring,
so different to others I've known,
Whatever the future brings
I accept and do not bemoan.
Come summer, I will finally see
which way my future extends –
both love and war, for me,
lead to absolute ends.
Longing draws from on high,
the radio delivers dread:
When I go, will I fly high
or down the low road instead?

Par deju  
“I became a dancer because of my desire to fly. The transcendence of gravity was always something that moved me. There is no secret meaning in my dances. They are a spiritual exercise in a physical form. Dance communicates and expands the universal language of communication, giving birth to joy, beauty and the advancement of human knowledge. Dance is about creativity…again and again…in the thinking, in the making, in the doing, and in the performing. Our bodies are a tool for expression and not a medium for representation. This notion liberates our creativity, which is the essential lesson and gift of art-making. The life of an artist does not end with age, as some critics believe. Dance is made of people, people and ideas. As an audience, you can take the creative impulse home with you and apply it to your daily life."
