Art and Civilization
Before that, you can’t have a civilization that doesn’t have art. When we think about the great civilizations historically, all of them have great production of culture and art. Because a society has built to observe itself, and the sophistication of the great civilizations were their ability to look at themselves. What allows a society to do that are the producers of art and culture. （Art） Holds a mirror back to the core of the society, exactly what is being produced at that moment, how people are thinking of themselves, and how individuals are relating to the social structure at that time. Art is the vehicle to which we understand that, were you to take away art, what would be that mirror, how we see what we are about, how we understand what is going on, in Paris, at the time of the impressionist when people were learning to see it in a completely different way. Pre- uh, cinematography… all of these things are just emerging and here are people looking at the world in a very different way which was considered so radical at the time.
