If it adapts itself to what the majority of our society wants, art will be a meaningless recreation.
— Albert Camus (via svaartpractice)
The public is still, indeed, as much convinced as ever that the artist creates superfluous, impractical things. It never considers that these superfluous things endure and retain their vitality for thousands of years, whereas necessary, practical things survive only briefly.
— Kasimir Malevich, “Suprematism” (via zuriche)
