"In light of the impossibility of that kind of certainty and optimism, what is the work that can be done that doesn’t simply pretend that part of the world doesn’t exist— that doesn’t follow Clement Greenberg and say that the world is the canvas and that nothing exists beyond the canvas?"
-William Kentridge
