Recently I had an intensive discussion with the ceramist Marc Leuthold about: is art critic necessary or not. He said:
“Critics play a key role in educating the public and calling attention to overlooked artwork. If they do their job well and pick wisely, they play a valuable role in the art world”.
And what is YOUR opinion? Debate is open.............
Edit: An American friend just explained to me the difference between critique and critic. You know, there are many stumbling blocks in the way when one's mother tongue isn't English. I, and Marc, of course meant "art critics", but we gladly can discuss both, critique AND critics, here in this weeks QOTW.
