"Against the urgency of people dying in the streets, what in God’s name is the point of cultural studies? … At that point, I think anybody who is into cultural studies seriously as an intellectual practice, must feel, on their pulse, its ephemerality, its insubstantiality, how little it registers, how little we’ve been able to change anything or get anybody to do anything. If you don’t feel that as one tension in the work that you are doing, theory has let you off the hook."

Death, Dance and Some Talk (2010) Michael Laub

"The expression ‘wet blanket’, which means you’re killjoy or party pooper, comes from a tragedy that happened in the ballet world. Emma Livry, the last of the romantic ballerinas, refused to have her tutu treated with fire retardent and it caught fire from one of the gas lamps on stage. She died from the burns. After that they kept wet blankets just off stage in case any other ballerinas caught fire." (Greg Zuccolo)

Mira Schor on “the current dominance of intentionality.”

"Even though many art faculty still express a mid-20th-century rhetoric of experimentation and discovery through studio practice, there has been a radical shift in the past thirty years from the mix of formalism and subjective expressionism that characterized art education in the wake of Abstract Expressionism, to a type of conceptualism that, at least on the surface, seems to reward rationalized concordance between visual appearance and verbal articulation, a to b. An artist today is unlikely to start a work without knowing exactly what it’s going to look like and to mean.”
