Anecdote

Like so many others, I read The Word of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction in college, and was crazy about it. And like so many others, quite probably facilely so.

 

Nevertheless, it did propel my investigations in both the making of art -- both objects, performances and written words. How could words be a valued thing, when they could be reproduced to easily? etc etc etc.
