Not everyone likes Banksy:
Art reflects the fallout from Condo Cancer:
I think we are over saturated with ideas/performance/installation art that was popular in the 70’s and 80’s. If you remember Fluxus was big in the 70’s and graffiti in the 80’s. But by the same token, there is a lot to be said about renegade art. People are forced to live in dirty shoe boxes and in order to show their art, they need to be clever or be a commodity. I think becoming a commodity is harder because you need to conform to a certain degree. And being a commodity you may just wind up the flavor of the month. Then in a few years more or less you are irrelevant. Sad but true. We often wonder what happens to people who were in the lime light and dropped out of sight. Sometimes they are dug up and in some hole some where and broke. While other times they are planning a comeback or put enough money away and are enjoying forced retirement. Interesting but it makes me wonder if running the race is really all that important. But I have to give these women credit. They are making a statement and it’s a good one. Now if the masses would listen perhaps there would be better and more affordable housing.
Still can’t get over the whole sperm bank/Lesbian/black baby story. There is a lesson to be learned here: be careful when you decide to use sperm banks. Again look what happened with the Z chromosome. All I can say is read the book. This incident in and of itself proves that weird stuff happens. But I think the real damage is apparent. The parents are pissed off that their kid isn’t white. Imagine being this kid in a few years when she will be able to get hold of this information. Talk about becoming a crazy adolescent. I can see her joining some kind of cult just to get away. Very sad. And I don’t think the parents (who themselves belong to a very oppressed group), realize this. I hate to say it but Karma has a wicked sense of humor. This affirms it.
