    Air Dispensers, 1971

    “Air Capsules, 1971/2013. 4 or 5 sweets dispensers were placed in the middle of a large room, for 2 DKKR one could get a small transparent plastic container, empty as it contained only air. I was stunned by the simplicity of the work though it also had several layers of meaning. It’s a joke on our for your convenience society and it tells us that there is no such thing as an empty space.”

    “Air Dispensers features a candy dispenser filled with seemingly empty capsules. Instead these plastic containers are filled with something valuable— air—which, according to the artist, is “the only thing we share.”


    Imagine Peace by Yoko Ono

    What is wrong with war, is as Gandhi said: “An eye for an eye will make us all blind”.

    I’d like to see the human race wake up to the danger and futility of war as soon as possible.

    At the time, in the 60s, we thought we could change the world just like that! But it’s taking a little bit more time!

    Imagine all the people living life in peace.

    I think that that’s a very strong thing to do.
    It might be a very controversial thing to do.
    Because it’s a very powerful thing to do.

    But I think it’s all right to say that.
    I don’t think that goes against the policy of this country or anything like that.

    I think, in the end, all people in this country really want peace.

    But how to get there, some people are thinking in a different way of course.
    But imagining, that’s something that we can all do, even when we have different opinions about how to get there.

    Imagining peace, imagining peace.

    That’s okay.
    That we can all do without feeling the conflict.

    War is over if you want it
    War is over NOW

    Yoko Ono Lennon

    “Don’t Worry, Kyoko” by Yoko Ono from the brilliant 1971 avant-garde album “Fly”.
