Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

Art no longer cares to serve the state and religion it no longer wishes to illustrate the history of manners, it wants to have nothing further to do with the object as such, and believes that it can exist in and for itself without things” is a dictum by Kazimir Malevich first recorded in his text "Suprematism".

Original German:

Die Kunst will nicht mehr im Dienste des Staates und der Religion stehen, sie will nicht mehr die Sittengeschichte illustrieren, sie will nichts mehr von dem Gegenstande (als solchem) wissen und glaubt ohne das Ding (also ohne die ,langbewährte Lebensquelle") in sich und für sich bestehen zu können.
