  • Mozart and Beethoven are the most significant representatives of the Viennese School,  so they’re a great place to start exploring the classical repertoire. In future pieces, we’ll have a more detailed analysis of their lives, the meaning of their work and the way it came about. But for now, just lay back and casually acquaint yourself with this marvellous chapter of European heritage.

  • When the Brexit-vote took place, there were those who claimed that the referendum was invalid because the young had overwhelmingly voted for remain. Apparently the elderly were no longer wise enough, they were ignorant and close-minded. The claim portrays the idea that the youth should have a bigger say in ruling the country, one that is larger than a simple equal representation.

  • Somewhat detracting from the quality of my immersive experience, I missed the beginning of “Showpony” during which “a single dancer slowly sits on an audience member’s lap, one after the other- a lap dance, a pony show, and/or a dog show, so to speak”. In another room, the artist “explores the idea of sincerity and seriousness” in a work entitled “Bathing Suit” during which a “lone female performer ritualistically undresses”.

  • “A single stone mass, impregnable to the waves and stronger every day,” that is how the Ancient Roman author Pliny the Elder described Roman maritime concrete structures. While modern marine concrete structures cannot even survive a few decades, Roman piers build 2000 years ago still stand, stronger now than when they were first constructed.

  • Poland will not bow to empires, no matter how great, wealthy, or militarily powerful they are. Poland does not believe the current EU migrant policy is sensible and it will not be bullied into accepting the it. (…) Poland, is unfortunately still a poor country, with many internal issues and poverty to be addressed. Poland does not have a developed welfare society, it does not have easy hand-outs on which one can comfortably live, and hence they do not feel a responsibility to save the world.
