​ “The aesthetic regime of art, as inaugurated by Schiller and the Romantics, is therefore premised on the paradox that ‘art is art to the extent that it is something else than art’: that it is a sphere both at one remove from politics and yet always already political because it contains the promise of a better world.” – Artificial Hells, Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship, Claire Bishop, p. 27
