Mutu

December 20, 2009

I also think people fixate on certain specific, superficial things about you to lead them into the work. It happens to everyone but particularly when the artist is from a different base culturally or ethnically […] With male artists, especially white, male artists, things are often taken for granted—the work is looked at very seriously, without this need to get into the personal and the biographical; they could be horrifically abusive or misogynistic, but their work always stands for itself.
