Why the ‘Psycho House’ mimics a Confederate Estate (I just revisited some Walker Evans photographs), I can’t tell. But it certainly fits in the overall tenor, where all things U.S. seem to be glorified and provide the furniture for the dreams of the fairground visitors – and I admit that for quite a long time this was true for me, too. And in retrospective I see it as a rare exception that one country so overwhelmingly dominates the whish lists of most probably a whole continent, and did this for decades, maybe even a century without too much reflection or critical appraisal. The anti-american movement in Europe, somewhat important probably only during the times of the Vietnam War, for now certainly is marginalized, which is good. But a more open discussion, also in the light of the impending TTIP treaty, is certainly necessary for both sides to better understand and accept the mutual sensibilities.
