Can one learn to be an artist? Is there still something new for them to do today? What is art anyway?
These fundamental questions about the origins, conditions and possibilities of art continue to be asked – even by artists themselves.
The answers show that, for most of them, art is of existential importance, practically a condition of what it is to be human, and also a filter through which the world is read or ‘an allergic reaction to reality’.
This book shows us how the artists themselves perceive and experience art: openly and clearly, cryptically and secretively, comfortably and unbearably – all at once.
