I think we should all be learning from each other. We should not only be talking but mainly listening to each other and we can all, I’m sure, learn from each other. Business can learn from art. Art can learn from business. I think now lots of artists are business experts. Regarding businessman who don’t know much about art – they say “I don’t care” or, “I don’t know anything about nothing, so I don’t want to have anything to do with it” – this fear should be overcome. It is not a problem really. You have paintings on your wall that you like you are always listening to music in your car, or in the street, or in a restaurant and so on. I think that business could learn a lot from art, not only non-rational things, but also purely rational aspects. About the artistic system, about the artistic work and about the artistic social role, that it got through the history of humanity. About aesthetics. About beauty. I think business should learn about art at least this: Artists were present during all the human history and they will be present also in the future and they should be supported.
