Lawrence Weiner: The Means to Answer Questions

An interview with the legendary conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner about the connection between cruelty, hierarchy and rationality. The artist must ask questions past ordinary logic, he says. In this interview Weiner philosophises on how the artist can present things people might not have noticed. Art is not meant to answer questions, but rather to ask them.

"An artist every day takes the chance of going mad, because you find yourself in situations that are past the point of logic you understand. You have to re-adapt your own logic, just to be able to communicate with somebody else."
