Tourism: A Waltz with Lucy Lippard:

Tourism: we enjoy it and feel a bit ashamed.

Tourism: it's inevitable. Because places are in space they can be approached from the outside. Place grammars can be recontextualized, viewed, placed within other grammars. All places are vulnerable, if that is the word, to tourism.

Tourism: despite the fact that it's inevitable, its occurrences are culturally specific. Our tourism is modern and postmodern.

Tourism:: Critics of tourism simplify too much. Especially us and our mode of living -- but also the natives' lives, and our mutual complicity.
