PROJECT FOR ART LIQUIDATION, text by Guillaume Bijl.
PROJECT FOR ART LIQUIDATION
BY ORDER OF THE STATE
-Due to art’s non-functional nature.
-Due to the lack of space that several ministries have had to contend with recently.
-Due to the uneconomical aspects of the art market, which is rife with tax evasion?
-Due to the annually rising costs of the ministry of culture.
-Due to the mounting general crisis, for which a solution needs to be found urgently.
-Due to the degrading nature of the new tendencies in art.
-Due to the anarchist mentality of many contemporary artists.
WE ARE OBLIGED TO CLOSE ALL MUSEUMS and transform them, as quickly as possible, into spaces suited for more practical purposes;
ART GALLERIES ARE TO FOLLOW; with the same aim.
THEY WILL BE REPLACED BY A.O.:
-Tax audit offices (department of the Ministry of Finance).
-Hospital wards (department of the Ministry of Health).
-Retraining centres (department of the Ministry of Labour)
-Military training centres (department of the Ministry of Defence)
-Career guidance services (department of the Ministry of Education)
-Data banks (department of the Ministry of Justice)
-Driving Schools (department of the Ministry of Roads and Bridges).
