A
rt And Language - Don’t Talk to Sociologists … 
(Corrected Slogans 1975)

Don’t listen to sociologist; don’t talk to
sociologists. Social practice has no sociological
content. Consider its history; because of its
historical role within bourgeois ideology — the
ideology of the ruling class, it can’t provide anyone
with an analysis or even a picture of our conditions
of exploitation.

This is not a piece of weird and obvious logic,
bar-room logic, not oafish opinion based on the
precept that a practice is, without mediation,
either inside or outside … some practices are,
because of their history, historically irredeemable.

Don’t unite artists and don’t talk to them. If you or
they are made to think that there’s a ‘rational core’
in that talk or unity in support of the view that
‘society’ is maintained harmoniously — rather than
by exploitation and force: violence.
