Documentaries: From the REVELATION TO THE PROMISE BY MARTA ANDREU

The promise or what disappears
But what if we recognize that what has appeared does not come to stay but its fate is to disappear again? Montalbetti describes a work of art as a closed box containing a promise inside, that must be kept hidden, veiled, intuited, only whispered, guarded so that it remains a promise to keep it a work of art. Thus, not only never really find what we were looking for, but also what will appear instead will vanish diluted in another truth: the only thing we can say is that effectively in the end we are always missing something. And our task is to not stop treating it, remember it and learn to live with it.
