"At another time, at the great pyramids of Teotihuacan, which is a tourist attraction, genuine little clay pieces would be spread out on the ground next to ones that were obviously newly made. As we were cautiously selecting the fine pieces from the poorly formed or badly broken ones, I heard a lady tourist say: ‘No thank you, I only buy what I really can use!’ Yes, art is useless, in a sense. But it has a restorative power that we need again and again. It assures us of a timeless meaning across epochs and regions, despite the absurdities proclaimed these days in art circles."
- Anni Albers, On Weaving (1974)
