A few people asked me “but why”? And I could flippantly reply “because art”, but more accurate would be to say “I don’t know yet”.
Borderlands/La Frontera, Gloria Anzaldua writes, “art typical of Western European cultures, attempts to manage the energies of its own internal system such as conflicts, harmonies, resolutions, and balances…It is dedicated to the validation of itself. Its task is to move humans by means of achieving mastery in content, technique, feeling. Western art is always whole and always ‘in power.’ It is individual (not communal).”
