<nettime> FIGHT HISTORY


FIGHT HISTORY: 731 chromogenic prints

Well there really was a brief glimmer of new-sucker-hope but...

C'mon, you're all just peripheral losers!

Maybe in the mean-time you can still inadvertently drum-up some legitimate
business for someone else.

Don't think of this as extinction. Think of this as downsizing.

For thousands of years, human beings have screwed-up and trashed and
crapped on this planet, and now history expected you to clean up after
everyone. You have to wash out and flatten your soup cans. And account for
every drop of used motor oil.

And you have to foot the bill for nuclear waste and buried gasoline tanks
and landfilled toxic sludge dumped a generation before you were born.

You held the face of the artworld-angel like a baby or a football in the
crook of your arm and bashed him with your knuckles, bashed him until his
teeth broke through his lips.

Bashed him with your elbow after that until he fell through your arms into
a heap at your feet. Until the skin was pounded thin across his cheekbones
and turned black. You wanted to breath smoke.

Birds and deer are a silly luxury, and all the fish should be floating.
You wanted to burn the Louvre. You'd do the Elgin Marbles with a
sledgehammer and wipe your ass with the Mona Lisa. This is your world,
now. This is your world, your world. And those ancient people are dead.
You want to blast the world free of history.
