In a global world, we should be citizens. Dignity has no nationality.
Art and politics have many things in common.
Art is useful. Through art we can start building a world that works differently.
As a student, you have to learn what areas are most difficult for you... Those are the same difficulties you'll have as a professional artist, so the school is the place to notice them and to find a way to make them work.
Once you become an immigrant, the first thing that is taken from you is the opportunity to talk about politics and to talk about yourself as a political being.
The art that we should be doing today, in the twenty-first century, is art that is not for the museum.
The first right an immigrant is stripped of is the right to be political.
