In writing about the Situatiuonists (see previous post) I am reminded of one of my favourite ART HATE poster What is ART HATE? and possibly the best exhibition we ever did at L-13: Storm of Defence: or, What is ART HATE and Other Cuntish Questions.
The poster came first and is based on the story of the Situationists coming to London to give a presentation at the ICA in 1960. When the floor was opened to questions the first one demanded to know what, exactly, is Situationism.
Guy Debord retorted in French:
“We are not here to answer cuntish questions” to which the Situationists walked out and went to the bar.
