La foto de boda de los padres // The wedding photo of the parents (by Nan Goldin, 1985)



“A menudo temo que los hombres y las mujeres sean irrevocablemente extraños el uno para el otro, irreconciliablemente inadecuados, casi como si fueran de diferentes planetas, pero hay una intensa necesidad de acoplarse a pesar de todo”. Aunque las relaciones sean destructivas, las personas se aferran. La tensión que esto crea parece ser un problema universal: la lucha entre autonomía y dependencia. “La balada de la dependencia sexual” comienza y termina con esta premisa. Estoy tratando de averiguar lo que hace el acoplamiento tan difícil.”
– Nan Goldin

(Citado en “La Balada de la Dependencia Sexual”, p.7.)

“I often fear that men and women are irrevocably strangers to each other, irreconcilably unsuited, almost as if they were from different planets. But there is an intense need for coupling in spite of it all. Even if relationships are destructive, people cling together. The tension this creates seems to be a universal problem: the struggle between autonomy and dependency. The Ballad of Sexual
Dependency begins and ends with this premise. I’m trying to figure out what makes coupling so difficult.”
– Nan Goldin
