Abstract

‘We live in the dark, we do what we can, the rest is the madness of art.’ (Truman Capote, Music for Chameleons) ‘We must again become a people making our own history. To be able to make our own history is to be able to mould our own future, to build our society that preserves the best of our past and our traditions, while enabling us to grow and develop as a whole people.’ (Robert Andre)
