Listen: George Gittoes interview on Mornings

November 12th 2015


Renowned artist and filmmaker George Gittoes hopped into the studio with Greta Balog and Nicholas Watts to discuss art, war, receiving the Sydney Peace Prize and everything else.

He’s certainly got a way with words. Here are some of our favourite quotes from the chat…

“Culture triumphs over the guns and the rockets.”

“I’d rather send an army of musicians and artists and painters and communicators, than battalions of soldiers with their guns.”

“The curator of art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales had said ‘we’ll never put a Gittoes in the gallery because his work is old fashioned’. It must be new-fashioned just to create superficial crap.”

“FBi is the voice of freedom of speech, the voice of freedom of expression.”
