Abstract Nº50

In artistic sensuality, you get in artistic fiction what you never get in life: not just pleasure but satisfaction as well. Satisfaction may mean that Your good always gets rewarded and Your evil always gets punished, or, it may mean that the structure of this world where high standards of morality go hand in hand with dominating power, gets exposed in fiction, so that the triumph, finally, belongs to those who laugh last, and not to those who always win in practice.

Lev Kreft, "Mission(s) of Art".
