الرجل الذي سرق المفيش

October 31, 2018

#culture, #art

Again, I'm not sure how to use the culture tag.

In The Man Who Stole Nothing / الرجل الذي سرق المفيش, the artists behind the Homeland set protest pieces discuss David Krippendorff's colonizing of their work in his piece entitled "This Show does not Represent the View of the Artist". Here's an excerpt from the article:

Mr Krippendorff, in his statement, did not bother to mention the Arabian Street Artists by name. We became unnamed, Arab-speaking sprayers. He told us he was trying to provide us with “publicity”. We’ve had publicity, thank you, more than you can apparently imagine.

I have some other links, but I think I'll save them for tomorrow. I want this piece to stand on its own. This article made me really mad. Fuck this modern day colonialist bullshit, from Homeland to Krippendorff.
