Comment Neelie
[...] Let me finish with a thought I had a couple of months ago when I visited an exhibition in London. It displayed the artwork of a German artist called Hannah Hoch. A hundred years ago she said to us that the purpose of art was not to ‘decorate’ or ‘replicate’ reality. The purpose of art is to act on behalf of the ‘spirit’ and changing values of a generation.
