I'm interested in Tom Paine, and his resistance to organized structures (religion, government) within societies, which end up 'tyrannizing' the ideals they are meant to promote. An useful analogy for thinking about the visual arts/culture today? We discussed a lot about how arts projects are represented and the desire to let the projects reveal themselves with an honesty, authenticity and integrity,... Can project be led by "Common Sense"?
That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. - Thomas Paine
