Celebrating Adorno - In Spite Of Everything!


I can't resist posting this tribute to Theodor Ludwig Wiesengrund Adorno (1903-1969) as the true humanist (and pianist) philosopher of the 20th century. There is a nostalgic touch and smell to his insistence on high culture, and yet he represented a belief in the supremacy of human creativity.

I photographed this elegant and simplistic Denkmal in Frankfurt, Germany, in a small and minimalistic square. And just think of the word: "Denk" = think, "mal" = just once. In other words: Just think!

That's what he did.
