“Art belongs to everybody and to nobody. Art belongs to all time and to no time. Art belongs to those who create it and those who savour it. Art no more belongs to the People and the Party than it once belonged to the aristocracy and the patron. Art is the whisper of history, heard above the noise of time. Art does not exist for art’s sake: it exists for people’s sake.”Julian Barnes in his novel, “The Noise of Time” via the FT 23rd April 2022, thanks to Mark Eisinger.
