Social and political turmoil over the last hundred years is represented
by slogans floating on clouds of steam. Walter Benjamin said: “The
real image of the past moves on fleetingly.” Slogans are projected on
moving steam, underlining the ephemeral within the project
and the way it tends to speak about history. Everything comes and goes
and turns around.
In the former Yugoslavia there was an expression often used to
describe politicians: ‘the ones who sell fog’ or ‘fog sellers,’ meaning
those who tell a free interpretation of the facts, not necessarily false
but not true either.
