why do we need the arts so much?

Frie Lysen:

Why the arts? Why do we need them so much? While we are all running around, busy doing things, the artists decide to stand still, to look closely at us and the societies we have constructed – at how we have organised ourselves. They look, analyse, reflect and criticise. And develop visions of what is and what could be.

Their visions are often eye-openers, electro-shocks, heavy confrontations with ourselves. Mostly painfull.

But we need it.
