ROOF MAGAZINE 5[NOV. DEC. 2016]
The Power is the theme of ROOF’s 5th issue. Throughout the history of mankind there have been many disagreements, conflicts, wars and fights initiated in order to obtain power, be it political, economic, military, ideological or organizational. However, power, or the authority associated to it, is often perceived as legitimate and is accepted as intrinsic to Man as a social and gregarious entity. But power also means the ability to perform, the initiative, the dynamics of achieving a goal, a dream, a fantasy. The aphorism that states “where there’s a will there’s a way” might not be entirely accurate, but without this initial desire, without this impulse of the will, human beings would surrender to their inherent limitations and not overcome them in constant evolution.
