At a Christmas party at a rich painter's studio I had a disagreement with a gallerist about what artists are looking for. Our claims both perfect clich├ęs: I bellowed "freedom" and he growled "eternity".

There was nothing at stake, though.
That's why he claimed this city is the new Berlin, the Berlin of 15 years ago; all these divided factions can still come to a Christmas party and there are no fights.

This is now impossible in Berlin.

is something kitsch if it is sensitive to local materials and vernacular?
