John Berger ~ Drawing

Here, at the BBC, you can find this short video interview with writer/artist/critic John Berger. I especially like the analogy the interviewer makes between Spinoza, as a grinder of lenses helping people to see, and Berger who, through his work, aims to do the same. And I like too Berger's characterization of drawing as "a constant correcting of errors."

Berger has a new book, out in Britain, forthcoming this fall in the U.S.; that is always something to look forward to.
