R.A.P. Ferreira - purple moonlight pages

“His job is inventing trophies of experiences– objects and gestures that fascinate and enthrall, not merely (as prescribed by older generations of artists) edify or entertain. His principal means of fascinating is to advance one step further in the dialectic of outrage. He seeks to make his work repulsive, obscure, inaccessible; in short, to give what is, or seems to be, not wanted. But however fierce may be the outrages the artist perpetrates upon his audience, his credentials and spiritual authority ultimately depend on the audience’s sense (whether something known or inferred) of the outrages he commits upon himself.
The exemplary modern artist is a broker in madness.”

  • Susan Sontag. The Pornographic Imagination.
