Alpha to Omega of Our Athens Nostalgia: Th is for Thatcher

How many photographs of these iconic floor-texts did you take? Were there times when you merely took a photograph of one and then walked on past the work it was related to? Were you every tempted to steal one of the blocks with the artist’s name on it? If so, which artist would you have chosen? As for this work, the film Why Are You Angry? by Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer, did you enter the room to watch the film? Or did you take the photograph and walk by? If you went in, what did you see? Before either watching it or walking by, did you read about the artists in the Daybook, for the entry of June 10? What did you make of the date in the black rectangle: 20 May 1986? (Were you even born then?) What reaction did you have, if you saw it, to the photograph of Margaret Thatcher? Does Thatcher make you angry? We should probably talk about her someday.
