„However, I gradually start to appreciate the Japanese print art [in wood prints] as a whole less than a small year ago. We can discuss it later, sometimes. For the time being I can say that the external elegance and skills are often not supported by a deep inner empathy with the depicted things.“

—  Jan Mankes Dutch painter 1889 - 1920

translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek

(original Dutch: citaat van Jan Mankes, in het Nederlands:) Wel ga ik langzamerhand de Japansche prentkunst [in houtdrukken] als geheel een trapje lager stellen dan een klein jaar geleden. Daar kunnen we het later nog wel eens over hebben. Voorloopig kan ik zeggen dat de uiterlijke zwier en knapheid veelal niet gesteund wordt door een diep innerlijk meeleven met de afgebeelde dingen.

„I think I have spoken enough to you about serious things; which is why I speak [now] of something to which I attribute great value, still too little appreciated — gaiety. It is gaiety, basically, that allows us to have no fear before the problems of life and to find a natural solution to them.“

„I refute that—I think that those are inevitable components, but it’s the surrendering to the impossible, the weird, that characterizes genre.“

—  China Miéville English writer 1972

Interview with Joan Gordon
Contexto: There’s simultaneously something rigorous and something playful in genre. It’s about the positing of something impossible—whether not-yet-possible or never-possible—and then taking that impossibility and granting it its own terms and systematicity. It’s carnivalesque in its impossibility and overturning of reality, but it’s rationalist in that it pretends it is real. And it’s that second element which I think those who dip their toes in the SF pond so often forget. They think sf is “about” analogies, and metaphors, and so on. I refute that—I think that those are inevitable components, but it’s the surrendering to the impossible, the weird, that characterizes genre. Those flirting with SF don’t surrender to it; they distance themselves from it, and have a neon sub-text saying, “It’s okay, this isn’t really about spaceships or aliens, it’s about real life,” not understanding that it can be both, and would do the latter better if it was serious about the former.

„My problem is I can think whatever I think—girl power, solidarity, Gloria Steinem rah rah rah — but I still feel the way I feel.
Which is jealous. And pissy about little things.“
