More on Büchel v. Mass MoCA

posted at 15:08 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

The NYT covers the “metaproject” that sprung from the “Training Ground for Democracy” debacle in this article: Accusations, Depositions: Just More Fodder for Art (don’t miss the slideshow).

(We’ve typed things about this fracas previously here and here.)

The work sounds and looks a tad tedious from what I can tell from the article, but one obviously can’t make an informed judgement unless one sees the work.

This quote of Büchel’s no artist should argue with:
“Who is going to decide what art is?” he wrote in an e-mail message. “For sure it is not the art institution if the authors are still alive and can speak.”
