Some critics

Egotistical and career-fuelled individualism should be banished, just as feeling sorry for ourselves should. What we should always bear in mind is that artists are always harbingers of values, and artists are always their tireless defenders in the face of indifference, generalised hostility and incomprehension, enemies that should always be fought off with stubbornness and determination, refusing to be bowed under by them and attacking them unexpectedly and suddenly on all fronts; because truth, which is beauty in a work of art, not only can but ought to reign supreme on this earth. Not fighting for this presupposes passively accepting the widespread dissemination of the new forms of barbarity that are typifying our times. Art has to attack conformist society like a powerful acid, not by backing what or who profess, either thanks to the resonance or fame they bring to bear, or those whom we might be led to believe detain art and have the ability to evaluate it and, in fact, impose it, but by backing art itself. Art itself must claim this victory in its relationship with the public, a public that is able to grow and that is therefore neither elitist nor factious.  (excerpt)
