The Enose and Beanos

Antonia Low, The Electric Return, 2010

Covertext, edited by Swantje Lichtenstein & Tom Lingnau, and based in Cologne, Germany, invited artists to answer the following question: Is the artist necessary for making art today? It needs no argument that the answers differ from one another. The most uncomplicated answer comes from Anthony Moore:
"I don’t suppose non-humans would bother with making art. So my conclusion must be, in this case, "YES", we do need humans for pursuing essentially useless pastimes like murder and painting."
