A ceux qui pretendent aider la culture par des subventions, oubliant que certains artistes ont de la memoire, tiens donc! Wednesday, Jul 27 2011 

L argent citoyen sans conditions serrai  la liberation de la creativite de tous. Mais tant que la culture est vue comme support flatteur d un systeme  capitaliste “modere” ou l artiste doit etre “performant” et bien adapte a plaire au gout tres sur des speculateurs ou a une classe moyenne qui “consomme” de l art pour parfaire son image , l appartchik complaisant a bien plus de chance de survie, meme tres  n importe quoi, que celui qui a une veritable qualitee artistique , mais ne joue pas le jeu. La complaisance peut meme etre un peu d esprit critique, mais pas trop, just assez pour faire semblant de changer quelque chose, sans rien deranger au systemes des subventions entre bons amis qui se connaissent et s apprecient. Sans parler des grands besoins financiers de la bureaucratie qui pretend administrer l art et sait se creer de nouvelles importances en laissant des miettes aux artistes, faisant d eux des subalternes sociaux de son bon vouloir.

La creativite est naturelle en tout humain et la culture est plus qu un instrument de faire valoir d arrivites au pouvoir.

The blood of culture is revolt! Monday, Feb 7 2011 

Even if culture has been kidnapped as faire valoir by a boring and bored bourgoisie, it was each time the sparkle of a new thinking, a new feeling a revolt against the mainstream mind.

I hear the wind of revolt in Mahler, Beethoven,  Schubert. I read it in the antic Greek philosophy, in medieval poetry. I see it in the impressionist, in the first hand spit on a wall, in each expression of human creativity who was a risk at his time and not a flattery of the wealthy.

Use culture shamelessly for your inner strength, listen to his hidden neglected power. Don’t stop at the surface concept using it for class division.

Lets us re-appropriate this wild deep spirit in it back! It is our all hard gain heritage who might help us to survive the driven short thought determinist.

They don’t fear anything more than creative sparkles of intelligence trespassing there own mind limitations. And nothing protects one more than the wisdom to know to be in a long lineage of courageous human.

Culture is a superbly dangerous revolutionary tool!

Art as a “market” Sunday, Nov 14 2010 

How many “uncultivated” workers are needed to finance the art bubble by limiting their earn to less more than nothing to finance the arbitrary nouveaux riche taste of those assuming that it needs something upon the sofa and that art is just another speculation resource more.

Art talk…is at the end, only the wrapping paper of the real deal.

artists…disposable.

 

 

 

 

The natural artist Friday, Sep 24 2010 

If you ask children at pre-school who is an artist, all children say “me!”, if years later you ask older children, you still get some voices, as adults the most pretend to not know how , and to leave that to “professionals”.       WHAT WENT WRONG?

My mother(painter and art  professor) had  show me since early age to see instead of only to “look”, by stepping a bit away from the picture and closing slightly the eyes.
She used to pretend, everybody can paint, once they forget that they have been told that they cant. Creativity is natural to humans, the division from the own potential, comes later as societal dividing “pet training”.

To go through “art training” is one option, but far more important is to be aware of the conditioning who happen, who destroyed the capacity to perceive the world and to communicate it expressively back .

This non perception assuming that art is for “special people”, a restrict boheme  and some “experts” , during the rest of humanity has more “serious” things to do, shows how dangerous creativity&perception is to a dumped downing engine who fears to be seen for what it is.inhuman!

Don t restrain yourself by forcing yourself into “being good” in whatever domain, try to let go and enjoy the playful child in yourself so long forgotten.The inner joy is the way to YOUR  “great art”!
