DISCUSSION

It’s Only Humanist


I think it's both hippie and hipster-an exotic apolitical fetish. I just think in an Asian new media exhibition context this would look so fug, though it functions fine on the internet. 

before people started responding with all the images I was going to compare its use to trying to reclaim the swastika, though the yin yang is also not as ideologically problematic.

As an art text the symbol also doesn't have as heavy a canonical resonance like the greek stuff in academic art. I just feel it's more kitschy than reappropriated greekness, that is all. I am not saying you can't use it.
