Ahem, do we mean 'hedonistic', perchance? Although perhaps all roads to lead to Rome, even Greek ones...

Mind you, Philip K.Dick thought he was simultaneously living in biblical times and in 70's California in VALIS...
He was - wasn't he?
I was for sure............
HELLO GIULIO,
I have posted this petition to other websites. and asked by other people this: "Hanna, would you be so kind as to publish an interpretation please. You cannot expect people to sign a petition in a language they do not understand. "
and i dont understand whats writen there, even i have sign.
thanks
Hanna
You agree with Chris that stalin was a real jewel? Are you too being ironic?
Now I am getting confused. Your Christian tenets are your business and you are welcome to them. The exploitation of animals for decoration and meat is universal and daily, which is what makes the reaction to this one man and his dog story extraordinary.
I like the Tolkien quote too.
Hi Mike, no... my reply was to the previous piece (these staggered answers are a little confusing!) and in particular the focussing of energy into positive actions such as Chris outlined ;-)
Did I make a gross error or did you misunderstand me? Oh I see the the latter!
I think everyone on this topic agrees that the action would be deplorable, the only remaining quesion is would it be Art? That question was raised by the assertion made in the title of the post. That is the reality of the situation. Is it not?

Personally I can't wait to see how this plays out. I hope there is no question of persecuting the dog and that we have all been suckered. We'd deserve it.
No, i am not wise. I doubt I ever will be :)
And I signed the petition too. I was merely playing devils advocate.
Because I saw strange fruit, artists hanging from the poplar trees.
Fret not Charles. I realize tht now. At least we are united in Tolkien.
CONTEXT - that's how it compares. Isn't that what Duchamp was getting at?
This is the first thing i read what i agree full . We artist want a better world but by painting or making photo's of people in dangerous life positions we only put the trigger on the thinking way . But we artist are fighters wanna do something .So the connection with a another matter can be a great thing .So is a expo to share a good social-issue a fine thing .But i think the arstist has to get some care too .
And there has to be some care for art too .
Maybe art has to take his hands together with problems in the society .
To get possitive activity with the society .
It would be the wring tree to try it from. The branches grow almost vertically so the rope would slide back down. You'd end up on your arse on the ground. Or was that your point?
Now, let's say you bring a starving dog into a gallery of art, as an act of art. You also invite a veterinarian and a good dog-food cook so that the dog will be healthy within a few days, and then you bring in another, and another during the whole period and that is your art-work. And you let people come and admire the dog and even adopt the poor thing and the whole action and their hearts will be satisfied and they will say: Great Art!
But some critics would probably say: that's too easy, or that the artist only wants to be admired for his generosity and love for animals, whereas children die in the streets in favelas etc. Anyway it can't be art.
So the question of art should not enter these actions at all. We protest or approve, that's it.
