on self and theft

Written by Romeo Anghelache no comments

...it is our sorting of the world that brings thieving into being, and that in insisting on that sorting we affirm a particular image of the artistic self. It is a self, for one thing, distinct from the "others" whose material it uses, and that distinction creates, I think, what Rimbaud calls "the false meaning of the Ego".
