"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"We are going through a very paradoxical situation. There have never been so many images. We are bombarded with thousands of them daily, without mercy and without warning. And most of them ask us to consume, consume, consume. So how does an image of pain survive in the sea of consumption? It doesn’t."
- Alfredo Jaar
