David Bowie – nem felfedezni, hanem elutasítani, akik vagyunk /not to discover who we are but to refuse who we are

David Bowie halála szomorú tény. Fontos azonban megemlékeznünk arról is, hogy mit jelentett számunkra Bowie élete. Bowie az az ember/művész volt, aki nem fogadta el a ránk vetített szerepeket és az azokkal való azonosulást. Mindig megújulást keresett és ebben a kreatív és megkérdőjelező létezésben élte a kortárs művészet eszméjét. Eric Harper, pszichoanalitikus így ír Bowie-ról:

“Such an important part of our growing up, search and pain. In this regard, the challenge for Foucault is not to discover who we are but to refuse who we are and to promote ‘new forms of subjectivity’ through the refusal of a present individuality that has been imposed on us for several centuries. Foucault, Bowie live with the question: can’t there be experiences in which the person, their self-identity, isn’t given any more? And thus wouldn’t experiences be given in which the person could dissociate itself, break its relationship with itself, lose its identity so as to transform oneself, Bowie life is to affirm the courage to becoming anew again and again, the creative art of making life itself an art!”
