3am Magazine Interview with gorse -

3am Magazine Interview with gorse - | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
I spent a little time immersed in some of those modernist little magazines when I was deciding what gorse might look like – Margaret Anderson's Little Review, Harriet Shaw Weaver's The Egoist, but especially Eugene and Maria Jolas' transition, that idea of collaboration, the intersection of words and art. But I'm certainly not nostalgic about a hazy past. Thinking of legacy reminds me of what Anselm Kiefer has said about being a 'history painter,' that to capture special moments in history is plain boring. He considers his work less of a linear evolution and more circular, everything comes around again and again and again.

Interview with Susan Tomaselli and Christodoulos Makris, editors of gorse.
