Dubuffet on Art

"What is the life expectancy of an art product? Ten years? Twenty, thirty? Certainly never longer. I'm for clean sweeps. After each meal, brush away all the crumbs and set the table afresh. Are you really going to hang three-hundred-year-old steaks and mutton in your dining-room? Bon appetit!?"

"Art, by it's very essence, is of the new. And views on art must also be of the new. There is only one healthy diet for artistic creation: permanent revolution."

- Jean Dubuffet
