Unlike the 70s underground, which essentially defined itself through its opposition to a dominant system, offshore is a distant attitude that chooses to skip unashamedly from the ‘hip scene’ to the ‘general public.’ The young generation does not seek to make a clean sweep of things but seeks to negotiate with reality, just as the skateboarder who loves to cruise chooses not to avoid the city and uses it as a playground instead. He has fun in the world and by doing so, also makes fun of it. The passwords of the offshore culture, which does not try to solve any contradictions but learns to live with them instead, are far from being watchwords that aim to bring an authoritarian system to its knees, and – on the ruins of the old world – prefer to tinker with new ethics.
(From Philippe Nassif in Le Débat no.112, Nov-Dec 2000)
