What absolute decadence! Shameful really, for all who participated and absolute hypocrisy on Marina's part. That event could have used some Occupy Wall Street protests.
what a bunch of assholes
embarrassing. rosana arquette's duck lips say it all.
KALIFORNIA ÜBER ALLES!
“She was especially exercised by the letter’s allusion to fascism, when she had spent her life opposing everything that her parents, Communist Party heroes in the former Yugoslavia, stood for. The gala, I gathered, would be something like a reverse Occupy MoCA, where wealthy, overdressed patrons would be given white lab coats to “democratize” the proceeding.”
doesn't sound very democratic when the performers are nude. also, communism and fascism are not the same thing. and, she was “exercised”? huh?
"guests fought over pieces cut by the bare-chested pallbearers. “I want the breast! Give me the vagina!” they screamed [...] A man I didn’t know accosted me. “Is it me or was this all about violence against women?” he asked. “It’s you,” I said. “Look at that cake!” he exclaimed. “It’s a horribly mutilated woman with knives in her chest. Doesn’t that bother you?” “It’s a cake,” I said. “It represents all the indignities women have suffered at the hands of men. It is women telling their own history.”
actually, this is women participating in their own subjugation. i'm with the anonymous disgusted guy on that one.
the entire event is sickening. so what if decadent celebrity cluster-fundraisers are common? all the more reason to criticize them, and this one in particular.
Can I give a huge SHOUT OUT to Thomas Hauseago. The only courageous person in the room. Way to go, man.
IDK about all that, but where were the artists in the Occupy Movement? Do today's artists hold a vast amount untapped economic power? Is now the time for artists to stand up take up their regime of social critique a notch and tap art's inherent intellectual property?
