Abstracte kunst bestaat niet
(There Is No Such Thing as Abstract Art)

'Some anecdote from the end of the 1980s. Canadian artist Royden Rabinowitch is preparing an exhibition in Museum Sztuki in Lodz, Poland. Ryszard Stanislawski was its director from 1966 until 1992. When Stanislawski uses the term “geometric abstract art”, Rabinowitch objects: “Mr Stanislawski, there is no such thing as geometric abstract art.” A somewhat uneasy silence follows. Then, Stanislawski, turning towards the artist, asks him: “How do you know that?”'
