Dave Hickey on Beauty & Bureaucrats

The first in what may become a series…

“Art dealers, I found, ‘only care about how it looks,’ while the art professionals employed by our new institutions ‘really care about what it means.’ Easy enough to say. Yet even if this were true (and I think it is), I can’t imagine any but the most demented naif giddily abandoning an autocrat who monitors appearances for a bureaucrat who monitors your soul.”

by Dave Hickey from “Enter the Dragon” in The Invisible Dragon: Essays on Beauty
