Kunst (Art, Artifice, Craft)
The word “art” has taken on an increasingly professional meaning. While for so long the term connoted a kind of trickster-like pattern of behavior, it has become more like engineering and marketing, more like the auto or tech industries than any kind of individual, excessive, mysterious pursuit of truth.
Artistic activity more often resembles corporate office behavior (a limited productive mode) than the behavior of local theater groups (a much more sensitive, human-development mode.)
In the ruins all our own, art resembles the activities of secret societies and local theater groups, and corporate offices attempt to imitate them.
