Art does not belong to us. It abounds everywhere. When it works, it goes somewhere we were not aware of when we began. We are responsible for how little we know; it’s no one’s fault but our own. And yet the more we learn, the less sure anything seems to be. That’s the danger of education. That’s the fault of the information society. Too many images, too much trust in our ability to classify it. Throw away as much as you can of what you know, and you might at last be able to see.
