A rush to “conserve history” (the wall that’s not a wall) today over any examination and consideration or contrast with actual history.

Today’s Tapas offering.

The city is actively devoid of interest in its history. There are a few individuals who pay attention to it and work hard to revisit and educate and inform, but in my experience it’s often poorly attended. Occasionally I’ve seen a great hunger for it — in the one on one exchanges that occured through doing the Taxi! interventions and once at a cinema screening of a film set in Vancouver. Yet I’ve also attended films that may have vital resonance to the city and been one of a handful of people sat there.
