Except, Manzoni's shit is selling around $200,000 a can these days and museums around the world are competing to get one.

why can't kids just play with building blocks?  once you start your phenomological wholeness crap, and tell them they're derivative works of postmodernists, aren't you stripping away pretty much everything good and creative?

you're breaking it.  let it go.  enjoy it or don't.  a can of meat or a kid's toy doesn't need analyzed and classified.

I am surprised with the lack of acknowledgement of Manzoni's work vis a vis Arte Povera, Conceptual Art, materiality in art etc.., and so on.

I wonder if pages of passionate arguments and word dressing in various threads here are really equivalent to fart-ins?

But anyway, let's keep it to architecture in box topic. Architecture of shit must be addressed and given a place in the discourse.

furthermore, i am not a catholic and  have no interest in scatology or urine as means of expression. (the likes of manzoni and serrano). blood, well thats something else. an early wishing of sad ashura everyone.

Oct 11, 12 12:19 pm

might as well say you have no interest in art, because there are a lot of shit and piss in it.

on the latter, enjoy it tammuz one of them is yours...

Oct 11, 12 12:42 pm

maybe he enjoys art, just not art that exists only for a critic's critique

curtkram - with this idea I would (also) like to point out some similarities between "postmodern architecture" and construction toys for children.

I am not surprised that architects drew inspiration from toys for children, other artists did it.

me think it be a tuff sell that architects were influenced by toys. Im sure you can find some who agree, and there are artists and designers (like Munari) who made a lot of things for children, but beyond that, that thought might well be the path better not taken. Its all fun until someone gets hurt, or until the blocks ofTerragni's Sarafatti are compared to, uh, blocks.

its interesting to think the reversal of Lo Giudice's strategy in pasting the brand-name-item of architecture onto a box, to mimic a supermarket product, saying as souvenirs-architecture can equally be associated with consumerism.
