“There is no “being” behind the doing, effecting, becoming; “the doer” is simply fabricated into the deed — the doing is everything” – Friedrich Nietzsche, On The Genealogy Of Morals.

nur der Thäter lernt / Only the doer learns

I’ve been listening to this programme on the control of Soft Power through the Arts.

Joseph Nye on Soft Power
Start the Week http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b052hdg1

Andrew Marr looks at what happens when political power fractures and how ‘soft power’ retains its influence. Peter Pomerantsev spent a decade working in Russia’s fast-growing television industry and tells the story of a country changing from communism and nascent democracy to a mafia-state and oligarchy. The political analyst Joseph Nye coined the phrase ‘soft power’ in 1990 and in his latest essay argues that while America’s economy may have been overtaken by China, the US century is far from over. Impressionist art continues to grow in popularity and price-tag, and the curator Anne Robbins looks back on the life of Paul Durand-Ruel, the 19th century art dealer and visionary who foresaw its power and marketability worldwide.
