„A creative artist works on his next composition because he is not satisfied with his previous one. When he loses a critical attitude toward his own work, he ceases to be an artist.“

New York Times, October 25, 1959.

„But alone, without any reference to his neighbours, without any interference, the artist can fashion a beautiful thing; and if he does not do it solely for his own pleasure, he is not an artist at all.“

—  Oscar Wilde, buch Der Sozialismus und die Seele des Menschen

The Soul of Man Under Socialism (1891)
Kontext: Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known. I am inclined to say that it is the only real mode of individualism that the world has known. Crime, which, under certain conditions, may seem to have created individualism, must take cognisance of other people and interfere with them. It belongs to the sphere of action. But alone, without any reference to his neighbours, without any interference, the artist can fashion a beautiful thing; and if he does not do it solely for his own pleasure, he is not an artist at all.

„Dylan is free now to work on his own terms. It would be foolish to predict what he will do next.“

"Dylan" in Representative Men : Cult Heroes of Our Time (1970) edited by Theodore L. Gross
Kontext: Dylan is free now to work on his own terms. It would be foolish to predict what he will do next. But hopefully he will remain a mediator, using the language of pop to transcend it. If the gap between past and present continues to widen, such mediation may be crucial. In a communications crisis, the true prophets are the translators.

„I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all.“

—  Federico Fellini Italian filmmaker 1920 - 1993

"Artistic Freedom"
I'm a Born Liar (2003)
Kontext: I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all. If there's one thing that's dangerous for an artist, it's precisely this question of total freedom, waiting for inspiration and the rest of it.
