The art collective Tragic Realist Fiction takes the road. In its films, videos and music, it pulls 19th century Decadent Romanticism through the swamp of modernity into our present times. Expect no dry philosophy. The world simply needs more she-devils.

After all, every landscape, moment, body or thought
Dark or light, moist or chill
– In the name of the damned paths of life –
Will always remind us
Of each other’s being
Of our temper and mere disdain
For the rules wanting to destroy
The pleasures between us.
