Article copyWhen W. from Merde in France told me about editing a famous photo and mix it with Leonardo da Vinci's Joconde to express our consideration for the French cultural ethnocentrism, state interventionism and back-scratching system of subsidies that feeds the Parisian Comrades but depreciates the production and restricts its diversity, contributing actively to the establishment of a monosemic artistic creation while, at the same time, gargling with a junk multicultural pretense [breathe here], I said: "Oh man, this is hardcore. Is there anything at all that you may eventually respect?"
So, trying to save Lady Lisa's honor and shame, I emphasized the following:
1. Leonardo da Vinci was basically
2. Instead of Mona Lisa, maybe we should have targeted some hollow thought contemporaneous piece of excrements that compensates its superficiality with an obsolescent 1970s sensationalism, like, for instance, this pathetic fashionable exhibit that was already outdated and washed up at the time when, entering with enthusiasm the inevitable and ineffable anal phase, I was just starting to really enjoy soiling my diapers.
Good Lord... The Revenge of the Ancient 1968 Cunt Aesthete From Outer Campus. I thought all of them were drowned during my Beaux Arts years but it looks like some escaped successfully.
Anyway, on a second thought, I understood that nobody would give nobody else's a** about this. So to be really provoking, it was Mona Lisa's finicky duty to face the grumpy guy's flash.
On a third thought - and, to be honest, that's what cut the deal eventually - it came back to my mind that, after all, one of our former Ministry of Culture had a much worse obscenity exposed to the very face of Lady Lisa (besides himself that is) and was apparently very happy with it.
That's were the real obscenity lies.
So I said: "Hell! You're right! Fuck 'em!"
To which he answered: "That's the spirit!"
There you go. Expose yourself to Art.
