Turning Around Forward
by Ekaterina Lazareva:

Walter Benjamin in his famous essay On the concept of History describes his favorite picture Angelus Novus by Paul Klee representing an angel with a sight turned towards past, while the gale-forced wind rush from paradise unruly bears him to future. Likewise the future inevitably overtakes mere mortals, however, our look turned into the past can happen to be turned into the future. As in Marina Tsvetaeva's well-known remark about Mayakovsky: "For us and maybe for our grandsons it is necessary to turn over Mayakovsky not back but forward".
