Rights always come with responsibilities, because what we enjoy we also have a duty to protect. Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité – these are not destinations at which we arrive thanks to someone else’s efforts only to lie back and take a holiday from thinking. Each generation has to engage with these concepts anew, re-defining them as necessary. Artists can do this through their work – indirectly, quietly, perhaps even unconsciously.
