Well, for debate purposes let's say I agree 100%. (If Beuys did, which he
didn't really, but he said it was good or that he wanted to or that that was
what he was hoping and working for, which was mainly a lie.)
Think of it this way: what is more important, the way things are produced or
the products? I think it's the way.
I think also that if you take Beuys, Warhol, Maciunas, and G2K you find that
cognitively the producers and consumers are the categories that blur, like in
Like in client-server, host-user, interface-database, etc.
Plus everyone go to artforumtalkback it's the best.
