Shaviro on Art

“What we really want, when we think that we love a work of art, is for it to overwhelm us, trample us, and crush us into bits.  We hate and resent creators, above all, because they see right through us: they understand our secret lust for annihilation, and they offer to fulfill it.”  Steven Shaviro, Connected
