Michel Foucault Series

It is Michel Foucault (1926-1984) who made us aware of the processes in which humans, their behavior and expectations are all subject to normalization. To use a more coarse word: repression may be detected everywhere.  He is also called Saint Michel Foucault, but let me doubt that. I like to think he was utterly human.
There may not always be a way to avoid normalization or repression, yet there is the possibility to address it. I did so in this series, created 2011-2013, featuring the portrait of Michel Foucault as an act of gratitude to him. His oeuvre will not end, but it will be a fertilizer for ideas as well as works that will grow on his legacy. 

This is a sequel to the blog of August 10, 2011

Go. Don’t stop. Go! 
Life implies differentiation
Fate happens, you act
