Re: <nettime> Thomas Hirschhorn exhibition

What is great, sublime, to speak frankly, about artists is their bitchy 
contrariness. Not for them the gaa-gaa adoration and/or gag-me-cecil 
vilification of the art work, go for the competition's jugular, lioness on 
a boar's back, one aim only: to savage the idiot's windpipe.

Nightingalish curators will patch the gash, or widen it, or infect it, 
applying holy water as the carcass cools and the sell value skyrockets, it 
is the duty of the artist to do unto artists what artworld does to 
artists, defiles the maker, so rise up unslumbered, mortally wound the 
hapless bastard who gets a show, worse, gets a show that is noticed, the 
more notice the hotter determination to erase that worthless 
fakir-fucker's existence, painfully, display tools of the artifice 
splashed with blood, goaded public appalled, notice faintly promised.

Rah, aargh, tear hair, beg for cancer.
