Example text

There was Hölderlin, that’s all, and to me he wasn’t a German romantic. No. It was something much more specific, dazzling in its own way. I know German romanticism very well, I have read a lot of it, but it wasn’t for me. In my view Hölderlin wasn’t romantic at all. He was mythical. He was rather in the line of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and writers like that. So it is not German romanticism, this is not what inspired me, it is too subjective, too romantic, too sentimental, so let’s not get things mixed up.

And then I was asked to do something on television with Raul Ruiz about simulacres. He wanted to do a satire on television documentaries and soap operas, and I said to myself, ‘After all, it really would be idiotic never to have seen them! ’ And once I had it, I found I liked having it. But I use it in a very random sort of way.

Postmodernism seems to me to do with being resigned, or even largely to do with regression.
