first image: this 1992 painting by Filipino artist Manuel Ocampo, “Why I Hate Europeans”, was used on the cover of a Skinny Puppy album (this is where I first saw it, although I never listened to the music). Ocampo once said:
“It’s only a coincidence when people understand your work. People can never really understand what you are trying to say.”
the second picture is the 6×6 foot cage in Pisa where Ezra Pound was detained in 1945 after being arrested for treason against the United States. he was transferred to a tent after showing mental strain.
If the hoar frost grip thy tent
Thou wilt give thanks when night is spent.
