In this brilliant essay, Ridao calls for radicalism and freedom of thought, starting from the most diverse stimuli. These range from journeys and conversations with writers and intellectuals to great works of art and literature. Along the way, he touches on details such as a Romanesque capital, the frame on a Pisarro painting, the ruins of a church, and a collage from Berlin’s alternative culture. The unique composition of this essay invites us on a lively journey through geography and time, with our eyes wide open and looking in all directions. He gradually reveals a different point of view and perspective on well-known events, and on ideas and judgements that seemed immovable.
