Performance "artist" always seem to be screwed up in the head, and yet always purport to be bringing to light some social ill, and feel they're doing
so in some "fresh" "bold" way. It's so often the case, that to use the term performance art is a cliche', it's automatically a perjorative.
In fact, most of these "artists" actions are more depraved than the depravity that they say inspired them. I can think of one such performance where
a "artist" tied a stray dog to a chain in a bare room and denied it food and water...until it died miserably. "Patrons" of this artist walked
through and observed the dog dying over the course of days. In another "performance" a litter of puppies was shot in the head in front of children.
Of course the "artist" had a noble reason why this was ok. If somebody somewhere feels that this cake, with a man laying there pretending to be a
young woman, giving mockish cries, really helps the issue at hand, I question their faculties.
That young womens external genitalia are cut off using a kitchen knife is the issue, NOT blackface. This "artist" failed. Sweden needs to cut
everyone loose that bought into this.
