Today Fung Lin Hall was in town. We did a San Francisco, free on Tuesdays, museum tour. Talked about contemporary art and some of the stuff we saw displayed in various shows at the de Young and Legion of Honor. Talked about art and art on the net. Talked Beuys, Rusha, Nauman, Kiefer... Camus, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein...fried fish, bitter melons... Rilke, Hoelderlin, Bergmann, Fassbinder among many others. Haven't seen her for ten years.
These pieces were at the de Young museum.
