For Jen Graves
Graves, in connection with what I said last night in the bar, I offer the second thesis of Alain Badiou’s Fifteen Theses on Contemporary Art:
“2. Art cannot merely be the expression of a particularity (be it ethnic or personal). Art is the impersonal production of a truth that is addressed to everyone.”That’s exactly my point and belief. Down with the personal, the individual, the hero, the genius. Art is always only the production of art.
