art history meme | 5/9 paintings: La Liberté guidant le peuple (Liberty Leading the People) by Eugène Delacroix (1830)

This scene, it tells us, took place on July 28 1830. On that day, the people changed history in Paris. Students rang the great bell of Notre Dame, work stopped altogether and people fired at soldiers from windows high over narrow streets. Crowds built up, shouting: “Down with the king!” By late afternoon, royal troops were making a last stand in the Tuileries while Charles X dined outside the city. The Bourbon king had alienated natural supporters as well as radicals with ultra-conservative policies, and the outcome of the July revolution was cautious reform; the liberal Duc d’Orléans was persuaded to take the crown, hailed by the statesman Lafayette as in himself “the best of republics”. Delacroix’s political masterpiece does not depict the peaceful and eminently reasonable, not to say bourgeois, outcome of the 1830 Paris uprising but its moment of anarchic freedom, when anything seemed possible. It is the most enduring image of what revolution feels like, from within: ecstatic, violent, libidinal and murderous.

Someone tell me what this is?

it’s song lyrics from serbian band ‘ekatarina velika’ :) song is called ‘krug/circle’ and it’s about, well, circles, which are everywhere in your life. everyone understands it differently, and anyone can find a piece of himself in this song, I think. :) it says - ‘I thought of this circle, I created this circle’ :)

“Please don’t be angry…”, a daughter says to her mother after telling her she cuts.
“Try to understand, don’t get mad.” a boy says to his friend after confiding in him.
“I’m so sorry...” a girl says to her father after he sees the marks on her body.
Something is seriously wrong with this. If someone confides in you their most guarded secret, that they self harm, do not get angry. The trauma that self harmers go through, not only when they actually harm themselves but when they tell people about it, is trauma you can’t even think to imagine. The feeling of opening up such private things is the scariest feeling in the world, please try to understand.
When you get mad at a friend, sibling or even child, you’re doing nothing but worsening their problems. At such times literally all we want is for you to hug us and to tell us you will support and always love us. By throwing a fit and getting angry, you make things so much worse. Don’t make someone fee ashamed of their mental illness, it isn’t something they can necessarily control.
The courage it takes to say “I need your help” is something many people do not have, and so many people underestimate. I honestly applaud you if you have the mental strength to ask someone for help. If you self harm, please tell someone. It’s the hardest thing in the whole wide world and I was stupid not to do it before my parents found out. Don’t be ashamed of yourself, what you’re doing isn’t disgusting or shameful, it’s sad and you don’t need a smack you need someone to talk to and you need a hug. Never apologise for self harm, it’s not your fault.
Reblog this if you’re always willing to listen if someone wants to open up to you. I will always be there if you guys need to talk to me. I love you and I don’t want you to go through this heartache.

My absolute best friend of six years hit me when I told her. We haven’t spoken since.
