"I can’t feel a thing; All mournful petal storms are dancing inside the very private spring of my head.”
— Franz Kafka, Letters To Milena
"The institution of art is not something external to any work of art but the irreducible condition of its existence as art. No matter how public in placement, immaterial, transitory, relational, everyday, or even invisible, what is announced and perceived as art is always already institutionalized, simply because it exists within the perception of participants in the field of art as art, a perception not necessarily aesthetic but fundamentally social in its determination.”
Andrea Fraser, “From the Critique of Institutions to an Institution of Critique,” Artforum (Sept 2005)
