Eschatology Catalogue, 44 pages, 16 photographs, the iconic series of the german photographer Matthias Koch in a signed edition.
“It happened that a fire broke out backstage in a theater. The clown came out to inform the public. They thought it was a jest and applauded. He repeated his warning. They shouted even louder. So I think the world will come to an end amid the general applause from all the wits who believe that it is a joke.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
Matthias Koch about Eschatology :
Hiroshima and Auschwitz have changed forever the way of humans to “be in the world”. Both events are at the origin of a new era, there has been a before and an after. Nothing will ever be it has been before.
Time does not stand anymore for an open future, time is now what remains, before the End.
Hiroshima and Auschwitz, the origin of the time of the End.
