Action of Art

from Sébastien Faure, The Anarchist Encyclopedia, 1934.

Action of Art: Selfless and living action, resulting not only in the creation of works of art as such, but in the manifestation of beauty in every act of life for the independence of the individual in every walk of life; action of protest and revolt—useful, not utilitarian, human, not humanitarian. Every sincere action is an action of art (Opp.: political action, military action, religious action, etc.—forms of inaction).
