An Artist Writes

Charles, old bean, this is how it's supposed to be done:
"We should do our artistic work so well and politically correctly that the working class of the entire world will be able to say -- NOW THIS IS MY VANGUARD PROLETARIAN ART." -- Rodchenko (1932), in "Experiments For The Future".

(Some memory in me -- a slightly-garbled version of the phrase "NOW THIS IS MY VANGUARD PROLETARIAN ART", truly a slogan for the rarified -- stirred when I read both Esche's anaesthetic sludge and Les Murray's much more enjoyable name-calling the other day, something which led me back to this little gem...).
