History is His Story


they say that history repeats itself
but history is only his story
you haven’t heard my story yet
my story is different from his story
my story is not part of history
because history repeats itself
but my story is endless it never repeats itself
why should it?

– Sun Ra

Filosofisch Café ‘Lecture by Elize de Mul’


Can you actually consider things by themselves? Apart from frameworks, tunnel visions and juniper expectations? The reason for this question is ‘Even if it’s Jazz or the quiet storm’, an exhibition in Nest without the usual coordinating story or unifying theme. For Filosofie in Den Haag and Nest, the exhibition ‘Even if it’s Jazz or the Quiet Storm’ is reason enough to invite writer and philosopher Elize de Mul to give a lecture. She wonders what it brings us, this encounter with things in itself. What do they show us? The mystery? The world in itself?
