Black History Month

"If works of art are to survive in the context of extremity and darkness, which is social reality, and if they are to avoid being sold as mere comfort, they have to assimilate themselves to that reality. Radical art today is the same as dark art: its background color is black. Much of contemporary art is irrelevant because it does not take note of this fact, continuing instead to take a childish delight in bright colors."
