Heroless

Heroless

By Suzanne Hoeben.

Adriaan Schout’s opening slides of euro banknotes – decorated as they are with anodyne bridges and architectural features – highlighted the fact that the notes are bereft of human figures, let alone leaders – living or dead.

Who could possibly be selected as a representative Pan-European leader for the € paper currency ?

My thoughts drifted to the faceless statues – known as the Corporate Goddesses – that adorn the roofline of the building where I had my San Francisco office for 20 years.  The 1984 building at 580 California Street is a post-modernist gem of architect/provocateur Phillip Johnson who pronounced the statues faceless since the post-modern world is heroless.
