Here below a collection of quotes from notable persons on the topic of Art and Violence
“I have an enormous desire to practice a little artistic terrorism.”
Richard Wagner
“In history as in nature, decay is the laboratory of life.”
Karl Marx
“L’acte surréaliste le plus simple consiste, revolvers aux poings, à descendre dans la rue et à tirer au hasard, tant qu’on peut, dans la foule” [The simplest Surrealist act consists of running down into the street, pistols in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd].”
André Breton
“Qu’importent les victimes, si le geste est beau?” 
“What do the victims matter, so long as the gesture is beautiful?”
Laurent Tailhade
“DieGewalt rüstet sich mit den Erfindungen der Künste und Wissenschaften aus, um der Gewalt zu begegnen.”
“Violence equips itself with the inventions of the arts and sciences to counter violence.”
“Der Krieg ist also ein Akt der Gewalt um den Gegner zur Erfüllung unseres Willens zu zwingen”
“War is also an act of violence to force the enemy to do our will”
Carl Von Clausewitz
 “(if) any human act evokes the aesthetic experience of the sublime, certainly it is the act of murder”. “…if murder can be experienced aesthetically, the murderer can in turn be regarded as a kind of artist—a performance artist or anti-artist whose specialty is not creation but destruction”
Joel Black
