It's hard to believe it's only been a couple of months. I feel like I've known you... I have all these words, these things...things I feel I need to say to you, only now. Something I don't know the capacity to speak.
I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do,by what we deny ourselves,what we resist and who we exclude.I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace,what we create and who we include.
不管你喜不喜欢，艺术是拒签一个线性程序，为了防止它自己回卷，退款艺术便有了陈词滥调这个概念。艺术的历史是增加和提炼的历史，扩展人类感受力之视角的历史，丰富表达手段的历史――或更经常地，浓缩表达手段的历史。艺术中引入的每一种新的心理现实或美学现实，对其下一个实践者来说都立即变成老套。 —— 约瑟夫・布罗茨基
