John Berger enunciates the possibility for art to run
“like a rumour and a legend because it makes sense of what life's brutalities cannot, a sense that unites us, for it is inseparable from a justice at last. Art, when it functions like this, becomes a meeting-place of the invisible, the irreducible, the enduring, guts and honour.”
As an artist, I feel the need to offer resistance to ‘life’s brutalities’, and although ‘activist art’ is not a new phenomenon, there is something about the times we are living through whereby I feel that a certain urgency has made the combination art and activism more necessary.
