Flash 0.0 - Sensitive detectors
An interview with pavu.com
Giancarlo Politi (Flash Art) - Octobre 2001
ART AND THE ART WORLD AFTER THE ATTACK TO NEW YORK
The attack against the World Trade Center not only shocked the whole world: it also changed it.
Our behaviours will be for ever changed, and our culture will be radically transformed.
Art has always been a sensitive detector of change, a delicate sismograph of our times, often anticipating the shape of things to come.
Giancarlo Politi : dear friends and colleagues,
We would like to know your opinions.
How will art react to the World Trade Center attack?
pavu.com : How could you not feel the sensitive detectors before ? You've let it go once again ? How can you even imagine that this event should change art ? You should have been aware of the very first online (not only american) reactions of "art" (09/11-12-13-14-15-...21/01)
Now it is off. Let's back to art and let the world deal with this super mediatic - art - question.
You know what ? You hire some guy to build a Guernica-like memorial.
We deal with the art question
Giancarlo Politi : How will the art world change?
pavu.com : Who's art world are we talking about ?
Giancarlo Politi : And will the market be effected?
pavu.com : What about potatoes market baby ?
Giancarlo Politi : SORRY IF I SENT YOU MY SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT ART TODAY. I didnt know that you are a total idiot and you are not part of the art world. Sorry again to disturb you from your dreams.
pavu.com : dear serious dotore i professore,
what do you know about "part of the art world" ?
You are not swift enough to face the new stakes of an art you didn't even see a
nickel for last 10 years.
we pavu.com ti lasciamo col "che fare" i ti diciamo : per l'arte i per pavu.com
"va bene !"
