\"Art is\" (Włodzimierz Borowski, Tomasz Osiński), 1975 (1-11/11)

"Art is.

The area of art is unlimited.

This is why all attempts at channeling it by artistic systems are a misunderstanding. For the artistic system there exist only: records of memories - flawed through the imperfection of memory and retouching stemming from ambition - as well as artistic declarations.

The artist, for that matter, participates in art in the present tense. The artistic system does not perceive art.


The functioning of the artist in the system forces him to deal with what has already been or what will be - depriving him of the awareness of the possibility of live contact with art.


The most difficult field for establishing authentic relations between individuals who find art necessary, is the field of the artistic system"
