‘Art is the activity that exalts and denies simultaneously.’ ‘No artist tolerates reality,’ says Nietzche. That is true, but no artist can get along without reality. Artistic creation is a demand for unity, and a rejection of the world. But it rejects the world on account of what it lacks and in the name of what it sometimes is. Rebellion can be observed here in its pure state and in its original complexities. Thus art should give us a final perspective on the content of rebellion.’
Albert Camus, The Rebel.
