Artists use lies to tell the truth while politicians use them to cover the truth up.
– Evey, V for Vendetta
I’m not exactly sure why I chose to juxtapose this quote from V for Vendetta with this Ted Talk. I saw the quote and it suddenly reminded me of Grey’s message, and as V would say, “there are no coincidences, only the illusion of coincidences.”
How do artists use lies to tell the truth? What is art? Are politicians artists? Are we all artists? Can any creative human act be considered art? What is the relationship between art and truth?
