Syndicate: : Berkeley : THE MUSEUM OF IDIOT-NET-ARTIST SHILLS



CRASH: An International Conference of Blabbering Incestuous Artworld
Acolytes at the Berkeley Art Museum (February, 2000). A wretchedly
exclusive symposium devoted to reclaiming critical, aesthetic, and
art historical issues undermined by art on the Net. The Symposium will
indoctrinate a small pathetic group of self-proclaimed 'authorities'
in institutional art history, academy careerism
and fashionable theory.

Cultural identity, in the deepest sense, is all about open, intrinsic
value. The institutionalized culture is never a means but always an
end. Cultural resources, rituals, and activities are valued in and of
themselves. They are not things that can be reduced to quantifiable
standards.

Culture, then, exists in sharp contrast to the institutional sphere,
in which all phenomena is reduced to utility, and expropriation and
expediency become the accepted artworld norms.
