"…I never would write unless I had a deadline. I would, in general, start like at, you know, 11 p.m. or 12 a.m., and I would finish at like 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. This is the thing: being young doesn’t just mean you look better. You actually are better, physically. You are faster. You think faster. You can concentrate better. I’m certain that I couldn’t do that now. I also don’t think I take things as seriously as I did then. Now I don’t feel any pressure to write. I could if there was a Nazi with a gun at my head. I think writing for me has always been a matter of fear. Writing is fear and not writing is fear. I am afraid of writing and then I’m afraid of not writing." - Fran Lebowitz (interview)

“Can an artistic intervention truly bring about an unforeseen way of thinking? Can an absurd act provoke a transgression that makes you abandon the standard assumptions on the sources of conflict? Can those kinds of artistic acts bring about the possibility of change?”
- Francis Alÿs
