A Breathtaking Lecture

Lieven Van Speybroeck

We live in breathtaking times. Literally.

This series of quotations is an expression of the very subject of the current global crisis, harvested from lectures that seek to spread ideas, not disease. It attempts to capture the spaces in between, where words originate.

It is an unironical ode to that which is currently cut, complicated, impeded, restrained, stigmatised, shielded, filtered, banished...

A moment of shared physicality. An act of collective breathing.
