"I am commencing an undertaking, hitherto without precedent and which will never find an imitator. I desire to set before my fellows the likeness of a man in all the truth of nature, and that man is myself. Myself alone! I know the feelings of my heart, and I know men. I am not made like any of those I have seen. I venture to believe that I am not made like any of those who are in existence. If I am not better, at least i am different."
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, from the Confessions

"The leading Surrealists sought to decode inner space and illuminate the nature of the transition from this subjective space to the material realm of the body and the outside world."

from 'Beyond Social Inclusion - Towards Cultural Democracy'. Cultural Policy Collective 2004

"I have always believed that museums love artists the way taxidermists love deer."
