art’s summons

July 8, 2010

“Art requires that he who practices it should be immolated to art, should become other, not another, not transformed from the human being he was into an artist with artistic duties, satisfactions and interests, but into nobody, the empty, animated space where art’s summons is heard.”

Maurice Blanchot
(trans. Sacha Rabinovitch)
