Quote of the Week: Bohuslav Martinů

Quote of the Week: Maurizio Cattelan

That last model is possibly the one I’m interested in most."

Quote of the Week: Jeff Tweedy

"A piece of art is not a loaf of bread. When someone steals a loaf of bread from the store, that's it. The loaf of bread is gone. When someone downloads a piece of music, it's just data until the listener puts that music back together with their own ears, their mind, their subjective experience. How they perceive your work changes your work."

Jeff Tweedy (born 25 August 1967), American rock music and songwriter.
