Wherever We Lay Down Our Troubled Heads To Sleep

Fig. 1. William Kentridge - (drawing for the film) WEIGHING . . . and WANTING, 1997

'The place of art is for me a transport-station of trauma ... the transport-station does not promise that passage of the remnants of trauma will actually take place in it; it only supplies the space for this occasion The passage is expected but uncertain; the transport does not happen in each encounter and for every gazing subject.'
