Re: Snuff



There was a story in the paper today about an art show in Sweden that =
exhibited a piece which consisted of 7 blenders with one goldfish each =
living in them. The viewer was invited to decide whether or not to turn on =
a blender. Two blenders were 'executed' during the opening. The SPCA was =
called. The piece was removed. Is that art? It certainly presents a =
powerful message about one living thing's power over the destiny of =
anothers. I don't think that is the intended message in snuff movies.=20

Dear All

I know this may be a bit of a hard one for many of you and don't want to =
=3D
shock or upset you in any way, but I'm preparing a lecture on =3D
contemporary art and would be interested in your feedback -- as =3D
professional artists in different fields.

Do you think snuff movies could be considered as art?
