Information about Karas belongs to
the past and, in case you are interested (there are times when
this takes me by surprise), you will have to make the effort
of consultation, starting with our publications. Try reading
them more than once, or in different situations, but do not let
them influence you. They demand too much attention. Karas is
an act whose only objective is quality, aesthetics and the perfection
of the act itself. It is a repeated act. I realise that the idea
is not new. Others attempted it beforehand, but...
Today, on the outside, the often mentioned
"prevailing social situation" allows the Karas project
to align itself with "uniqueness", something that occurs
frequently because of the world's immensity. I also know that
the choice of going back to the essential, to quality, is very
accessible; but you will have noticed that this choice is never
widely adopted. However, Karas has a "commonplace originality"
which I will outline for you: it is not interested in goals or
objectives. By focussing all its efforts on the present, Karas
becomes a goal in itself. Karas is a project. Karas is about
"being a project". The Karas project exists to the
extent that it is being made.
