Good Art, Creation, is generally two decades to two centuries ahead of its time in relationship to the establishment and the police state, good Art is not only not understood but also feared because to make the future better it must state that the present is bad, very bad, and this is hardly an endearment to those in control...
-
L’Arte vera, il Creare, è in genere da due decenni a due secoli in anticipo sui temi, se paragonata al sistema e alla polizia. L’Arte vera non solo non è capita ma viene anche temuta, perché per costruire un futuro migliore deve dichiarare che il presente è brutto, pessimo, e questo non è un compito facile per quelli al potere...
Charles Bukowski
