Art to me is not precious enough that I feel territorial about what the word gets applied to. Conversations about what counts as art and what doesn't doesn't captivate my attention very much.
— Maggie Nelson
In life and art, there are distinctions to be made between what an act of cruelty consists of.
I don't think there's any formula for what makes great art.
I don't ever believe in violence as a kind of medicine.
