Hexis

Intermission wherein I do not cite Foucault

  • Unaware it exists;
  • Unaware they benefit from it;
  • Unequipped to empathise with the (alien) lack of those who do not.
  • Suffering Oppression;
  • Exerting their own oppression;
  • Raising awareness;
  • Being accused of inventing it;
  • Solving the mess.

Cultural Capital

  1. When I arrived in France all food seemed dull to me, no spices! (I’m Brazilian, right?) Over time I started developing my palate, seeing the nuances, seeing that french cuisine refused to mask the taste of the ingredients, proud of it.
  2. I still thought, then, that ‘fine dining’ was a bullshit way of selling very little food! Until I started developing a palate for it and seeing a world of another nuances: Like a cake that is called ‘tea‘ and feels like drinking tea but is solid (is awesome)
  3. 15 years ago I used to think abstract art was bullshit meant to scam people selling paintings that meant nothing, after raising a LOT of cultural capital in it I’m almost moved to tears when I go to @CentrePompidou and see Yellow-Red-Blue by Kandinsky
