Ryszard Kapuściński
“People are not hungry because there is no food in the world. There is plenty of it; there is a surplus in fact. But between those who want to eat and the bursting warehouses stands a tall obstacle indeed: politics.”
Ryszard Kapuściński, The Shadow of the Sun

Theodor W. Adorno
“The forms of art reflect the history of man more truthfully than do documents themselves.”
Theodor W. Adorno

Edward Said
“Liberation as an intellectual mission, born in the resistance and opposition to the confinements and ravages of imperialism, has now shifted from the settled, established, and domesticated dynamics of culture to its unhoused, decentred, and exilic energies, energies whose incarnation today is the migrant, and whose conciousness is that of the intellectual and artist in exile, the political figure between domains, between forms, between homes, and between languages.

Edward Said, Culture and Imperialism

Pier Paolo Pasolini
“Tu sei come una pietra preziosa che viene violentemente frantumata in mille schegge per poter essere ricostruita di una materiale più duraturo di quello della vita, cioè il materiale della poesia.”
Pier Paolo Pasolini

Kwame Nkrumah

Kwame Nkrumah
