Eyal Weizman


A change in military thinking is taking place these very days, in which the military understands that future wars will take place in cities. If in the past symmetrical warfare was conducted by state militaries in the open fields, today militaries are fighting enclaves of resistance that withdraw ever deeper into the density of the urban fabric. ‘Walking through walls’ is the military tactic of tearing down holes in the façades of people’s homes (and the walls between rooms) in order to expand the battle field from the public to the private space.

‘It’s never too late to say sorry’ (2012) by Elmgreen and Dragset.

Public sculpture consisting of a carefully designed museological display case containing a polished, stainless steel megaphone on a granite pedestal. Every day at 12 o’ clock sharp, a man will appear at the display case, open the door, take out the megaphone, and shout out over the Coolsingel, Rotterdam (NL): “It’s never too late to say sorry”.
