Science will propose
a universal truth that will not depend of particular spaces

truths that will never be repeated the same. Artistic
truths cannot be repeated the same as they result of the
crossing of two cumulated times: The one of the artist
and the one of the spectator.
Science and art result
of two different internal requirements:

the manifestations of romantic art where everything can
Modern art will push
even further this process by installing the artist’s
subjectivity fully above the content of the work. Everything
will depend upon the power of the choice of the artist.
Humour also is essential that diverts objects from their
original destination, depending fully upon the choices
and fantasy of the artist. Derisory works will be proposed,
all subjects to comments and judging.
Mechanical arts following
