Müller, Heiner

As quoted in Suzanne Scanlon’s Her 37th Year, An Index:

The only thing a work of art can achieve is to create the desire for a different state of the world. And this desire is revolutionary.

(What I first read for “Heiner” was “Helen” and came upon Helene Müller, who, according to Wikipedia, was “one of the first European women to put together a major art collection.” Equally plausible that she would have said such a thing, and without know Heiner’s work, I almost prefer my mis-reading to fact.)
