(σχεδόν τίποτα δεν είναι άξιο να λέγεται τέχνη, ακόμα και αν γίνεται από "πιστοποιημένο" καλλιτέχνη)
Almost nothing is true art. Certainly nothing common or popular. Art is created by a few geniuses denied popular acclaim by their own uncompromising vision.

(σχεδόν κάθε τι που έχει "επιζήσει" είναι τέχνη)
Any creative work made by anyone is worth investigation, preservation and in-depth academic criticism. Every painting, poem and rustic folk song is indicative of the ineffable zeitgeist of the cultural disposition. People were surrounded by art all the time and didn’t even realize it.
