Vvzela Kook on ‘Civilization is Sterilization’ 曲淵澈談「文明就是消毒」

在曲淵澈:「機密錄:重寫」展覽內的字句往往有多重含義。例如,「重寫」意指記憶被刪除及重新編寫以外,亦有從多角度重新書寫歷史之意。標語「文明就是消毒」亦然:英文「sterilization」除「消毒」之意亦指「絕育」。本段訪談中,曲淵澈談及了這句出自赫胥黎小說《美麗新世界》的標語。

In Vvzela Kook’s ‘Confidential Records: Overwrite’, the meaning of words are often multilayered. For example, ‘overwrite’ not only refers to the reengineering of memories, but also to the recasting of history from myriad perspectives. The word ‘sterilization’ in the slogan ‘Civilization is Sterilization’ also takes on double duty: It means disinfection but also to make someone infertile. In this clip, Kook discusses the slogan that first made its appearance in Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’.
