PLOT: The world is changing faster and faster, and traditional art still remains in conservative, autocratic, selfish paths, presented in white cubes. - Remember Boris Lurie's comments: "The Price for the Collaboration in Art, as in the concentration camps – excremental suffocation. It is not by submission, coolness, apathy, boredom that great art is created – no matter what the cynics tell us. The secret ingredient is what is most difficult to learn - courage."
The Boris Lurie Art Foundation [BLAF] continues to work on the destruction of NO!art with its latest Exhibition at the ►Jewish Museum in Berlin. BLAF presents a strange compilation of Lurie works repainted by an inexperienced "restorer", on some of which the new paint still shines. The information material explains nothing about the NO!art propagated ►manifestations by Boris Lurie. The co-director of the Boris Lurie Art Foundation, ►Anthony Williams, boasts in his speeches about a $100 million inheritance of Boris Lurie, which the Foundation received in a strange way. Moreover, Williams never knew Boris personally, except on his deathbed, let alone on what NO!art actually means. Thus, among other things, he goes as far as to explain the Stalin love of Boris on the grounds that the Russians liberated him in Buchenwald. Fact is: Boris was in the subcamp Magdeburg and was liberated by the Americans, documented in Amikam Goldman's film ►NO!art man. Conclusion: With money you can propagate the greatest stupidities, to which also some professors and museums devote themselves. If Boris could hear and see this, "he would rotate in his grave".
From 2009 onwards, after the death of Boris Lurie in 2008, the exhibition strategy was determined by Gertrude Stein and her Boris Lurie Art Foundation [BLAF], which absolutely contradicts Boris Lurie's ►STATEMENTS, his ►LAST WILL and his ►STÜTZPUNKT FOUNDATION for NO!art's development. Gertrude Stein wastes Boris' fraudulent monetary legacy and donates it to institutions and museums that create a Boris Lurie exhibition for her convenience. The directors and curators falsify and ignore everything for money, even the roots. ►more
