that's what is so amazing about art and being an artist, you know that whatever you do you will end up offending someone.

i used to do performance art and the first performance i did pissed the crap out of everyone and nearly got me expelled from high school.

I have to surely agree with you here.
I'm a musician, released 5 albums in 2009 and trust me, I got a lot of crap and criticism about how I "overuse the cliches", "not go by the usual music rules", "ignore the masses" etc. Also, a lot of "artists" are offended how fast do I write music - there's always offense from them about "how can you release five albums in a year, no band does that".

That's what I love about what I do.
Quote "No band does that."
Opposition quote "Well, now I am the one to break your shitty rules based on social settlements."

exactly. i'm a practicing artist and you're used to hearing how great your work is, but for me, i always wait for the "but, uh..." because i know something is coming and someone is not going to "get it" and i'm going to get lampooned into a corner where i have to decide whether to go ahead with what i've done or re-work a photograph to make it more viewer friendly or acceptable enough to bring mum and dad to the opening exhibition.

artists of any kind be it musicians, film makers, visual and performative - we owe it not just to ourselves but to the integrity of our medium to just get the fuck on with it and do what it is we have to do haha. something along those lines.

yeah, it's definitely amazing. but there's a line where you just can't excuse any kind of behavior by saying "it's art".

you know... Hitler was an artist. maybe his whole rampage was just an installation?
pray nightfall release me

I feel you. Surely I do.
You cannot imagine how many times have I been in this "my creative perspective" or "viewers' pleasure/understanding" crossroad.
And me having an attention whore-y alter ego does not help here :)

well, murder is not art so i don't think it even classifies. those two aspects of hitler's life are completely different. i actually don't mind some of hitler's paintings. he was talented as an artist. shame about his lack of humanity though. it is kind of intriguing. most god awful murderers are actually good painters and drawers. i would like to believe that art gave these men some comfort because it would have been fucking dark as hell to be that contaminated with evil and not have something good to turn to like art or making music, or just doing something with your hands and expressing yourself creatively somehow.

and i better not get attacked for saying that. i'm semitic so i would have been in a camp or the gas chamber. hitler hated my 'kind' but i'm just trying to give a non-biased response.

Art is an expression. Murder could easily fit into that stroller, in my opinion.

with all the other random shit people call art, then yes. definitely.

don't get me wrong, I love art and I consider myself an artist too. but I'm sick and tired of stuck up idiots who don't have anything better to do than be weird and try to offend people and then call it art.

also true, and i agree with that completely. art has simply become a mask for any kind of expression these days, because everyone and their mom thinks they have talent. like 16 year old girls taking pictures of a streetlight at sunset and calling it photography.

jesus christ, it's MAURIZIO CATTELAN. has anyone bothered to check out what this work is actually about, and what cattelan is saying with it before they start making accusations about it being from the 'middle ages'? i stood under this horse and i burst into tears because it left me with the most intense feeling i've ever gotten. i have never been in front of an artwork and felt what i felt then.
