We live in a strange age: museums see the number of visitors growing steadily, the numbers of auctioned sales of contemporary international art leave us terrified, but the presence in the public space of artists - and intellectuals in general - has been growing. decrease in a worrying way.
For everything (politics, football and social life) appear gold-paid commentators. But who asks, nowadays, what artists think about what surrounds them? Gone are the days when philosophers would spend more than an hour on any subject on public television.
The voice of art does not solve problems, it does not foster political, ethical or social solutions, but it presents itself as a possible discursivity for a specific and unique view of the world. It adds to it a derisory, critical density and, always, when it is truly a question of art, questioning the assimilated standards while normatively correct or expected.
Let these voices be heard. Or in the case of the visual arts, let's see the voices of the artists. One day we will regret ignoring them.
