untergehen

 

Layers of compressed charcoal and washes were built up then erased into, working from a photograph of a burnt building.

The title is deliberately open to interpretation. The following passage is quoted from Dr Tim Wilson

“Going under (untergehen) is the decisive act of the philosopher or artist who must bring back whatever enlightenment he or she has achieved to those within the community who are ready to hear it.

For instance, each of the following, in their own way, go under: Plato’s philosopher-ruler, More’s Hythloday, Spenser’s Immerito, and Nietzsche’s Zarathustra.”
