Example text

L’artiste se trouve par là sollicité par deux aspirations contradic- lui faire front. Nous voyons ainsi le grand Adolf Wôlfli inscrire au dos de ses tableaux le prix qu’il leur assigne et qui est tantôt d’un million de milliards et tantôt d’un paquet de tabac. Certains des auteurs d’œuvres des collections de l’Art Brut ont un comportement qui conduit à penser toires, tourner le dos au public 58 et que leur et sans jamais strictement à leur seul usage moindre désir qu’elle soit que ce soit. A y regarder mieux, production se fait qu’intervienne le montrée à qui demander s'ils n’ont pas plutôt résolu Yaffaire par la solution ingénieuse d’un public imaginaire qu’ils se sont créé pour applaudir à leurs ouvrages (ou pour s’en indigner).

Pour venir à bout de la culture, qui sévit depuis des millénaires, il faudra d’abord détruire l’idée sur la62 quelle elle s'appuie d'une valeur attribuée à la production d'art. Je prends ici le mot valeur aussi bien dans son sens économique que dans son sens éthique ou esthétique mais d'ailleurs l'un implique l'autre. On ne peut abolir la valeur marchande qu'en abolissant la valeur esthétique, et c'est au surplus cette dernière qui est pernicieuse bien plus que la valeur marchande, et aussi bien plus fortement ancrée.

Avec commerce Au contraire de nourrir le grouillement primordial, l’humus fécond dont naîtront les mille fleurs, la propagande culturelle le stérilise; elle plante à sa place quatre hortensias de papier teint de sa fabrication, dont elle est très fière, et désherbe bien soigneusement tout QUÈOUI‘. Il n’y a de vigoureuse sécrétion mentale qu’à partir de s’alimenter aux crudités de la vie personnelle journalière.
