“EQUILIBRIUM” is the title of the latest mural by Carl KENZ in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The wall is 7 x 2 m and refers to the relation between nature and the human behaviour.
”A state of rest or balance due to the equal action of opposing forces; Balance. The gladiators in the arena here are probably the global capitalist system contaminating planet earth and nature. However, only one opponent has existed long time before the first arena was even built. An apparently unequal fight, parasite against host? Optimization processes are opposed to the laws of nature and their harmonious flows. Not acceptable for a system based on infinite growth and exploitation of humans, animals and nature. Perhaps we played the game of capitalism almost through and should, before the Apocalypse, recognize that it only has created losers. A reorganization of processes and a global life with, not against nature?! We don’t see things the way they are, we see them the way we are…”

”We are hostages to the wealth of the international financial world. Finance has taken control of the economy rather than serving it. Global crises, poverty and ecological change are due to the poker game of the financial sector, which serves only one purpose, the steady growth. Without regard to losses. The incomprehensible narrowness of human development, as well as herd instinct and slave morality, is omnipresent. Morality and human virtues have long been exchanged for hypocritical security and the power of the banks. A paradoxical logic that unfolds in capitalism. Certain ideals are aimed at a goal that can never be achieved but cannot be forsaken also. In religion this goal is closeness to God or complacency, in capitalism happiness, security and satisfaction. But as little as man can become God, there is no way to stop the need for more growth. People follow outdated ideologies in an imperialist period of capitalism.”

1. in extended space over and not touching. 2. at a higher level or layer than. These are the things we are mostly not able to understand, picture or reflect. Look above, concentrate and find your inner self to understand, picture, reflect and create things. Everything you are looking for is already there, within you, waiting to get unlocked. Truth and freedom begins beyond imagination. It can only be found with and within you and a certain universal overview of things. Peace, love and universal understanding.
