Refusal to dig deeper is astounding. What are we refusing to look at and look for in the end? Most people find it too much an effort and scary to seek anything other than the surface of things mixing surface to mean and show the inner quality.
Surprise is how artists can be reluctant to learn more. Shocking is how this denial and fear of digging deeper shows itself in the arts, in its structures, in its hierarchy, in its everyday and in what is done. How does art evolve and develop in this kind of atmosphere, what is left outside and ignored. In this kind of light what is art about?
Underestimation is never a good strategy, not in education, not in politics, not in arts, not anywhere.
