Many people tell me...

Many people tell me that they are not interested in politics. That´s strange to me since politics is about our life. Being interested in politics does not mean you have to be a member of a political party. A political party does not own politics. No more than birds own the sky. I think that one of the roles of an artist is to criticise society and to criticise politicians and political parties, especially the misuse of power, not only with words but also with actions, when needed. But in the spirit of the society we want to live in. Criticism is a form of love. We must to use reason, yes. But we also have to remember the unseen, the unproven, our feelings and cultural roots that cannot always be reasoned. It is called creativity and works perfectly with reasons.
