Days [ ) Nothing to say | Gilles Deleuze, 1925-1995

Anton Räderscheidt, Begegnung, 1921

“The problem is no longer getting people to express themselves, but providing little gaps
of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive
forces don’t stop people from expressing themselves, but rather, force them to express
themselves. What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only
then is there a chance of framing the rare, or ever rarer, the thing that might be
worth saying.”

Gilles Deleuze, “Mediators”, 1925-1995
