The paradox, which corresponds to the contradictory situation that 'the Balkan' artists smartly take advantage of, is that the inner logic of museum collecting compels artists to go into the everyday life. These artists know from the beginning that they will be collected - and they actually want to be collected. As revealed by events in the region itself, such as the 2nd Tirana Biennale in , the real is still different from the perception of Reality.

The Real here is the sad fact of the utter indifference of Albanian authorities with the exception of Tirana, with its charismatic mayor Edi Rama towards the ambassadors of Albanian contemporary culture who have gathered around the Biennale to promote in the West an image of an open-minded Albanian community, more than any CNN documentary feature on Albania would ever do. Thus, a swift consolidation of the existing differences within 'deep Europe' is a mission that, viewed from the present moment of Reality, appears to be both imperial and pathetic.

The article is a revised version of the article with the same title, originally published in Framework: The Finnish Art Review , no. In an earlier work by Reid, The Scalp Hunters , published in and translated in Leipzig for the German market in , there are numerous similarities to May's later works including a description of an Indian Chief named El Sol which is an astonishing likeness to May's beloved Winnetou McClain, It is interesting to note that at the time the German version came out in Leipzig, Saxony, Karl May was ten years old and living in the same German state.
May was in prison twice during the period of June until May of , so it is conceivable that he had access to Reid's The Scalp Hunters in German and possible that a version of Reid's The Lone Ranch made it to May's reading table. But still the point to notice is that Mayne Reid is quite forgotten today, while Karl May's legacy reaches out from Germany to activate networks around the world.
Ironically, some residents of the Staked Plains, who have not given much thought to the unique area they live in, are being influenced by Germans who come eagerly seeking the long-envisioned yet never-visited Llano Estacado of their childhood dreams.

Even more impressive for locals is the fact is that the German visitors are not disappointed with what they find, not with tornado threats, not with dust storms, not with sand between their teeth nor on their food. It's all right there in Karl May's writings and Winnetou's explanations.
The flat land, the huge sky, the great expanses, the shifting weather. The elements don't disappoint in this semiarid place: Aridity, more than anything else, gives the western landscape its character. It is aridity that gives the air its special dry clarity; aridity that puts brilliance in the light and polishes and enlarges the stars; aridity that leads the grasses to evolve as bunches rather than as turf; aridity that exposes the pigmentation of raw earth and limits, almost eliminates, the color of chlorophyll; aridity that erodes the earth in cliffs and badlands rather than in softened and vegetated slopes, that has shaped the characteristically swift and mobile animals of the dry grasslands and the characteristically nocturnal life of the deserts Stegner, , p.
It is entirely possible that understanding the European fascination with the Llano Estacado will allow us in Lubbock to develop in the coming years what the Germans call ein sanfter Tourismus , a gentle tourism, an educating and educated sharing of information and experiences.
Slowly, over the past 15 years, there has been a movement in the entire area of the Staked Plains to prepare brochures and guide booklets in German. Amarillo has a city tour guide printed in German.
The Lubbock Lake Site has a leaflet in German. The State Department of Tourism has even produced an entire book in German advertising the many excellent travel destinations in Texas.
A new photographic exhibit on the Palo Duro has been flown over to augment the Tech production and Amarillo musicians have been on hand at some of the Saarland openings. The Bureau has also started advertising Lubbock as a tourist destination for Germans. And now the first German tour groups have already come and gone and once back home in the Vaterland they have written up full and glowing reports on their visit to the Llano Estacado. Each visit has been carefully honed to connect Germans with the land, to let them understand the semiarid and arid climates of Texas and New Mexico and the things they produce: ranches, canyons, adobe walls, windmills, stock tanks, prairie dogs, quarter horses, cotton, playa lakes, solar energy, and long, long, straight highways stretching out as far as you can see with nobody else in sight.
The endless frontier. It is important to notice that in the plenary addresses of the Fifth International Conference on Desert Development, tourism was listed as one of the areas of future development for arid and semiarid lands.
