Filed under: Contextual References, Interventions, Ruminator's Digest — mastermistress @ 12:25 pm

For:

Wim Delvoye (Belguim) – Cloaca
The great art and science collaboration that has a machine producing faeces.

Julia Morrison (New Zealand) – a mere mention, but nothing indepth

Chris Ofili (UK) – famous for incorporating elephant dung into his portrait of the Virgin Mary

Piero Manzoni (Italy) – Tins of his own excrement his motivation for this was to expose the gullible nature of the art-buying public.

Marcel du Champ – his urnial ‘Fountain’ – noone explains it better than my mate Wiki

Against:

The Press – they’ve had enough of what artists get away with.

Word Net Daily – artists work funded by government takes crappy puns and poked at with a stick.
