can't tell you what art does and how it does it, but I know that
art has often judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent
and shown to the future what the past has suffered, so that it has
never been forgotten.
know too that the powerful fear art, whatever its form, when it
does this, and that amongst the people such art sometimes runs like
a rumour and a legend because it makes sense of what life's brutalities
cannot, a sense that unites us, for it is inseparable from a justice
at last. Art, when it functions like this, becomes a meeting-place
of the invisible, the irreducible, the enduring, guts and honour."
