Yes, if you like that sort of thing. A lot of Thomas Hirshchorn, and a lot of notes (21% percent of this book is notes). I cannot pretend to have understood it all.

Book Review – “Everything to Nothing” Geert Buelens (2015)

Yes. It’s an interesting way of looking at the 1st World War. To be honest though, I would have liked a bit more poetry, and a bit more discussion about the structure and formal effectiveness of that poetry. To be shown just how much of an everyday cultural integer poetry once was is a revelation to me.
