Common Language / 9
Do we still need myths? Our modern societies love nothing more than contradictions, and that's precisely why myths are still useful to us. By helping us to understand our surroundings, they act as landmarks. But it seems judicious, not to say essential, to introduce new protagonists, figures capable of summoning up the complexity of our times.
By the greatest of coincidences, and even though this is not always their preferred field, the guests in this ninth issue of Common Language all have a very strong relationship with writing. As if words were regaining their strength despite the domination of images. The rest of the pages of Common Language are teeming with the colours, shapes and sensations that will enliven these future frescoes, like so many testimonies to our everyday lives.
Because today's stories will become tomorrow's myths.
