Bad Art…Bad Taste…

Artist Santiago Sierra may have overstepped his bounds this week by introducing a project “to give people a sense of the holocaust”.

What does he do?  Why, he pumps toxic car fumes into a former synagogue of course!  What’s just as unbelievable is that he has hundreds of visitors that want to go inside.

Santiago says the purpose of his work is not to trivialize the tragedy but in my own opinion, I think he’s exploiting it.

    Unfortunately, that what time does. It “heals all wounds” even when some should remain to remind us. It’s happened a couple of times this last decade, most recently the “President” of Iran denouncing the Holocaust even happened.

    Indeed. Short-sightedness is definitely a problem…

    tell me you have seen some of the cartoons depicted the holocaust. and not to sound like a bastard… but I will. some are funny… granted those are the ones based of israel’s policies and not the holocaust itself. denouncing that it happened al together is a sack of shit.

    in a greater sense… I say get over it. do the christians hate the romans… hell no, we moved our capital there. there nothing humane about anything that happens during a war… it’s all bullshit and depending on who’s bullshit wins decides what was evil and what was needed.
