Re: <nettime> The Next Idea of the Artist - essay



I didn't think it was based on any fact.

What I call "tiresome" is the inbred erudition that passes for

scholarly. It isn't a new disease, but I can finally say something

about it ???????????

  I have been following this interesting debate since its inception
and I must say that one cannot find any proof in Rana?s words that
indicate an attempt to kill off Beethoven or any body else. Why does
anything have to be solely based on fact? Why is identifying something
or someone as romantic an insult? Why should every discourse follow
in the paths of the scholarly and have to live up to its tyranny?
Nobody's cultural, societal, or political contribution should be above
being critiqued and reinterpreted! What happened to freedom of speech
-- don't even speak the names?, your anger is truly unjustified.
