Good afternoon everyone .
The painting, music , sculpture , literature , theater , cinema . Please forgive me if I miss some other form of artistic expression , it´s certain that there are many more , as many as wide is imagination and creativity.
The big problem today is that everything, absolutely everything , is in crisis. Prices for art , (excepting some museums) , are high. Taxes go up and up without restraint, even taxes to culture, are at a level we had never met . And what is the purpose of all this? Sadly the end is that art, in the end, pays for everything , but not without paying their own bills and taxes . The creators are doomed to pursue other things besides create to survive.
Art doesn´t go away, there will always be creative and create things , but the problem is that creation is a close friend of freedom , and the less free we are , the poorer our art.
There´s only one art that I see every day is surpassed himself LYING . I see daily lies mainly in our leaders and those who lead us . I see lies in the media , I see lies in the network (internet) . There´re so many lies , we start to believe in lies, transforming it into truth.
We believe what they told us as if we were mere cattle, ignorant and dependent on their power.
