« Art is already in itself a word that causes a certain amount of irritation […], [it] is a way of thinking about the world and it would be a mistake to think about it as something detached from real life and politics. All art is representation and therefore in relation with others, society and structure […] across centuries art has always been there, a way of communicating with others, like paintings in churches as a bible for an illiterate population. Taking a closer look, he who has not lived his own time disappears in art, and so art is either in things or isn't. »
