Annonce

  • In which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together’ (John Ruskin)
  • The sole fact of having a school to train creative people is absolute lunacy... The idea of 'pedagogical vision' is ignoble, it has nothing to do with art, it is contrary to art. I really believe in teaching, despite what I say.’ (Christian Boltanski)
