Artery

My comrade Il Duce today gave an interesting lecture on Art. He maintained that Art is essentially a contrivance designed to elicit response on one, some, many or any levels. It has a duty to attempt this feat and must be respected insofar as it makes this attempt. It must be respected as the Other or as an evocation of the Other. However, it need not respect any particular respondent. This is a very useful definition.

I missed that lecture because I had a doctor's appointment... but isn't Il Duce a rather sarcastic and negative sort of name to call someone?

Le Canard is worse. But we call him that in English.
