4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture

From conflict to conflict via change: a reply

Edward Hopper’s "Nighthawks in the age of the coronavirus". This image is striking, as it upgrades the loneliness in Hopper’s painting to a heartbreaking abandonment. In this new version, there are not even persons, subjects to the experience of loneliness; the viewer is left with that experience himself. We are not invited to see how others feel lonely, we are forced into loneliness.
