“The subjectivity of the white middle class heterosexual male - you know, that’s what the 20th century was about. And when they spoke about Modernism that’s who they thought Modernism was for […] I’ve never felt guilty about owning that subjectivity. On the other hand I feel that once you recognise it, you have to assume responsibility for it, and you have to also ask yourself, given that I occupy this position of privilege and power, how can I use that to advance the causes of others?”
