When I discover an artist that did decades ago what in my mind is barely the sketch of a possibility I suffer a kind of artistic-existential short circuit.
Illustrated reflections on art and life, art exhibitions, and other events.
The ones that consider themselves superior see the ones that they consider inferior as animals or objects, and themselves as ideals of perfection.
In art, form always wins over content. If the content is protest content and the form is conventional, the piece is conventional.
The ones that defined the former rules should not be allowed to define the new ones because we have already seen how badly they worked.
When I worked as a life guard I didn’t tell anyone how they were supposed to swim. Why do people think it is normal to tell a woman in labour when to push?
Choosing what to copy and what not to copy, apart from being a tribute, is a selection process that says a lot.
I believe is that for art to exist it has to be possible to differentiate what is art from what is not.
What a strange exhibition. I love strange exhibitions. They are the perfect antidote against the banal prevailing miasma.
I wanted to see the Virgin of the Rocks, by Da Vinci. Not to copy the light, I know I can’t. But because I love it.
Confusing desires with rights has its roots in early marketing, when it was still called propaganda and had just been invented.
Why is women’s work understood as a derivative of their condition and if a man does the same it turns into something that concerns humanity?
Art and science are similar. Both have to visualise a result before it exists, believe that the it is possible and find a way to get there.
In The Art of Commitment I defend that the function of art is political and that it is used to serve the interests of the market economy.
Um, I never liked that stereotype, it’s ugly, but it was a gift from society and so I’ll feel bad if I throw it away just like that.
Now everybody does it and we have had time to get used to it, but when Mekas did it there weren’t that many.
