Censorship exists, Alyssa.
Whether it’s imposed by external forces or internal demons, it’s always there. “the artist” is always ‘someone else’ as Saul Steinberg put it. And this ‘someone else’ (obviously a Freudian analogy), is a repressive self. This someone is NEVER there to help us ‘enlarge the stage, the canvas, the road. This is a mean self and this is – perhaps – the self WE, “the artist” hold true to be the eye of the audience: our greatest fear and most adored enemy
