if we expect our artists, those that help us collectively explore and understand the human experience, to be morally perfect and beyond reproach?ask Nick Cave on his site the Red Hand Files.
A fan wrote to Cave’s website to ask how he felt about
The current trend of connecting the shortcomings of an artist’s personal conduct and the art they create and using that criteria to determine if said works are corrupted and therefore to be relegated to the dustbins or not?For example, theosophists have been wrestling with the same problem, and before of them, among others Goethe.
Yes, art must be wrestled from the hands of the "pious".
by the way
Sometimes I feel like I'd like to ask Cave if he knows what Rudolf Steiner told about the twins, for example, in his lessons about Mark's Gospel.
