Re: 60 Minutes does Art Basel

Art is supposed to provoke a reaction. What he did provoked a reaction that shines a light on Donald Trump and a man's sexual self-determination. Therefore: Good art.

Maybe he was just showing that he has a bigger pee-pee than D.T. I mean, that is an issue that has been raised in this campaign, so it's relevant, right?

Clearly a metaphor for the vulnerability of his religious brothers and sisters juxtaposed with man's sexual self-determination. Good art.

I believe Fellini touched on that in the 1970s.

You think? It seems to me to be more of a mocking commentary on the repressive mores of the radical Islamists.

Of course, if he'd been in America, the cops would have shot him.

Or tried to, and missed. And hit a dog.

Could be.

We are reacting to it. That's what makes it good art, and not just a crazy person streaking. He showed the police that they don't control his sexual self-determination.

Re: 60 Minutes does Art Basel

One of the functions of performance art is to provoke funny reactions among the people who don't get it. Performance art would be no fun at all if everybody got it.

Thanks for playing along. It's entertaining.

I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane
and all the passengers were drunk and insane.

I love how the people in the boulangerie have a situational awareness of about zero.
