In Us

Anselm Kiefer’s “Der Morgenthau Plan,” 2012

You can remember much more than you think. It’s not only the brain that remembers. The cells remember. It goes back to the dinosaurs. Part of your brain is from the dinosaurs. Like jealousy — it’s a very negative, nonsense feeling that comes from dinosaurs. They were jealous, fighting all the time. And part of their tiny brains is in us.
