The Aestheticized Interview with Denis Brun (France)

"I think that art has not such a social role that contemporary society would like us to believe. Especially when it is used as a substitute to real politic or education to try to badly fix a certain lack of social cohesion, economical fragility or cultural poverty. At this level, society's expectations of the unifying and restorative potential of art (and artists) are totally disproportionate".

The Aestheticized Interview with Monica de Miranda (Portugal/Angola)

"I believe that the artist can create and talk about art only from his/her subjective position.To have a political responsibility that extends beyond the artistic territory is too much of a burden which could jeopardize the artist's creativity and freedom. In such a case, the art serves a function, becoming a manifesto. Art should not fulfill a function, it should be free. "

The Aestheticized Interview with Ezra Wube, Ethiopia

"I believe there is a natural educational aspect of art. Creativity provides plural ways to problem solve. It also establishes curiosity as a quintessential practice that makes us human, the urge to take risks or leap into the unknown and adapt".

The Aestheticized Interview with Regina Hübner

The Aestheticized Interview with Regina Hübner

"Art comes out from life and its social role is to be part of life. My genome will continue to exist in my two daughters and I believe, that life on earth will never be extinguished. In my heart I hope to be remembered by the emotions I and my artworks gave and hopefully will continue to give. This provokes a sense of immortality and, of course, I would like to be never forgotten. But only being part of universal life, which annihilates the single individual, guarantees a never ending existence. Not easy to accept".
