On art and seeing

Art does not reproduce the visible;
rather, it makes visible.

– Paul Klee, 1920 –

Surely this, too, is the responsibility of good leadership: making visible that which we had no way of seeing before.

Just one excellent reason to engage seriously with art in its many forms – painting, sculpture, music, poetry, writing – so that we have eyes to see beyond our habits, and beyond our own horizons.

And so that we develop the capacity to discover and disclose new worlds of possibility for one another.

Want to see more Klee? There’s a wonderful exhibition of his work at Tate Modern in London until March 2014.
