Dear G.H.

when I said that is necessary to be against consumer culture I wasn't talking about "populism". I was tryng to imagine another way of interaction between the persons in a cultural experience.
And this new experience is not "populism".
For me the challenge is not to think in artefacts, objects (fetiches)
but to manufacture places, actions: time / space not capitalistic.
To do and not to work (John Holloway).
To be vulnerable to the other. Not anestesia.(Suelly Rolnik)
If you only consume you are under anestesia. 
Not curiosity, not surprises.
culture is not eficience.

all the best,
