the mere fact that it would need an explanation makes it political, that is what politicians do, use words that mean nothing, to explain nothing, so that we remain uninformed of the true nature of the subject

Rubbish is rubbish.

It can not become something else by giving it an explanation.

China does not have the obligation to stay poor in order to produce "arts" for you to marvel at.


I thought that was going to be the new push?  To promote culture and give the world something to marvel at?

As far as AWW, I put him in the same camp as Cerny.  There is obviously a following for that kind of art.

The only big difference between the two is Cerny is not treated as a traitor to his country.

Cerny pulled off the biggest art hoax in modern history.  What he did was actually criminal.  He took money from investors for fictitious artists that he created.  These 'artists' had profiles and comments on their 'art' which was all produced by Cerny.

I just can't believe no one found out about his art piece until the day it was installed at Brussels.

Cerny says the piece was made to see if europe could laugh at itself.  It was a very provoking piece.  The best was that UK was missing.  lol

Anyways....why can't art be political and still be art?  And who says the intentions are always malicious in nature?

Artists see the world differently than most.

Are you guys insinuating that there is someone behind him pulling the strings?  

He is some CIA 'stooge' because real artists aren't political in nature?  Says who?

Does the piece in this vote actually say all those things  ........     ?

Or have I missed something ........
