Quote of the day

I have been forced recently, by bureaucratic circumstance, to write 'occupation=artist' on a form. Moi Pretentious?

The label, artist, makes me cringe, mainly because during their Dadaist phase, John Heartfield and George Grosz once observed that "the name of 'artist' is an insult. The denomination 'art' demolishes equality between men". Still, it could be worse. I could have been forced to write academic, politician, geek, teacher...Isn't the world of work a rewarding place!
