    THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART 
    99 WORDS WITH JONAS MEKAS

    The first word that comes to our mind when we think about Jonas Mekas is “inexhaustible”.
    Inexhaustible as his work. Like the narrations of it that can be made.
    Like the invention of Film Culture, the New American Cinema, the Anthology Film Archives, the film diaries.
    Like shooting, editing and publishing online a movie a day every day in 2007. Like jonasmekas.com.
    Like painting flowers on large white papers the night before an opening. Like telling us “It’s challenging enough to say yes” and to reaffirm it again and again.
    Inexhaustible, even more than eternal.

    Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, curatorial duo
