BORIS LURIE, NOT MINCE MATTERS | Interview by Megaklés Rogákos and Janos Gat | New York | Could you generally describe the origins of the ‘No Art’ movement? Basically, it was a reaction against what’s going on in the cultural world and the general condition of the art in America, with certain references also to the Holocaust, which was a subject that nobody touched at the time. Exhaustion with commerce, sex and stuff like that. ►more
IS THE UI TRYING TO CENSOR THIS WOMAN?
Museum of Art employee Estera Milman thinks so anyway, which is why she’s decided to make a federal case out of it. | Review by Brendan Wolfe | in: icon news, Iowa City | Estera Milman says she's being censored. She says it's the University of Iowa that's doing the censoring, and in the name of academic freedom and intellectual independence, she's filed suit in federal court. She also says the UI lost out on a major, groundbreaking art exhibit because of it and may even have risked future federal funding. That much of the story is easy, even sensational if you take the word of New York City avant-garde artist Martha Wilson. She sees a comparison as old as the Sistine Chapel in this question of whether "the donor has a right to say something about the content of an artist's work. It's like Michelangelo's situation with the pope," she says. "And Michelangelo made it clear for all of art history that he would not be controlled." ►more
