You can’t talk about the struggle for human freedom unless you talk about the different dimensions of what it is to be human. When you’re taking about art, you’re talking about meaning, your talking about love, you’re talking about resistance, you’re talking about imagination, you’re talking about empathy. All of these are part and parcel to talk about human freedom. And so art is about those who have the courage to use bits of reality, to get us to see reality in light of a new reality. So it’s about vision by means of imagination. It’’s about empathy of looking through this world and seeing the possibility of a new world a better world, a more decent compassionate world, and so being one a painter musician, sculptor, dancer. In fact, be one a human being who aspires to learn the art of living. Because In the end that’s what the arts are really about… how do all of us become artists of living - which has to do with courage, love, justice, leaving the world better than we found it. For me, art is so inseparable from politics.
