SYNOPSIS

Overall, the idea is to make ethnicities, politics, races, nations – to make all of them turn into non-existent objects…

…akin to ovals, boxes, blobs, wardrobes!

You might think he’s really “someone”, really a “representative of the people”, but really just a representative of skirting boards, of coffee rings, nothing more.

Overall, political invectives that should be perceived solely as poetic invectives.

Overall, spreading geopolitics across geology and poetics.

Like a question-Eskimo, dancing and waving his ribbons in the air, turns and changes on a pillar, becomes a question-Holocaust.

In fact, “geopoetics” is a kind of a Holocaust seen as a choir, as an ensemblement, as an Eskimo.
