„We shall survive in the memory of others”
                                        Vilém Flusser


„We shall survive in the memory of others”

“…there is a long history to the philosophy of images, most of it is negative. Because due to our Greek and Jewish tradition, philosophy has a prejudice as far as images are concerned. It is the prejudice that the image is only a copy, a simulation of thought, so that either it is forbidden to make images, or that images are being accepted with a great distrust. But I think this is now changing because the images no long represent the world. These new images are now articulations of thought. They are not copies but projections, models, so a new attitude toward the image is necessary, and I think it is developing.”

Vilém Flusser, 1988
