When people are still talking about this- the David Wojnarowicz video that was removed from the Smithsonian due to pressure from culture warriors the end of November. By the way, Hirshborn Trustees – you missed the outrage bandwagon by 2 months. Way to be on your game.
Is censorship bad? Of course. But seriously? You have already expressed anger, you have already been outraged and demonstrated as much. I think it is time to go on to bigger fish and other cliches.
Besides. The video has ‘narcissistic art school student trying to blow people’s minds‘* written all over it. Let’s move on, shall we?
*i have a sincere distaste for video installations. Rarely do they move past ‘boring’ and ‘seriously obnoxious’ for me. So, take my opinion with a grain of salt – the video has significant cultural connotations…I just couldn’t give a shit.
