While on display in France Andre Serrano’s Piss Christ was vandalized. I personally don’t really care much but it does spark debate. The original work took a statue and vandalized it in the first place in the name of “art”. If someone destroyed smashed it in the name of art would that be a problem? The people that did it– didn’t have this motive. They were presumably pissed with the piss work. But if they had done it in the name of art would it make a difference? Maybe it was performance art? The bottom line would be that if it were purchased one could do anything they want to it. If the peeps were smarter they would have bought it — then burned it. I am not a fan of the work anyway. I think art can be made shocking then justified by any variety of means. Does that make it good, or bad, or just sad…
