Art Prisoners' Hungerstrike Statement from 20. december 2007
ART PRISONERS' HUNGERSTRIKE STATEMENT
From 20. december 2007 until 24. january 2008
Our Revendication of 29 november 2007 was unsuccessful. The Pledges made by the (h)Art Chief Editor to lift our Isolation and stand for the Rights of the Art Prisoners were Dirt. We find ourselves therefore in Hungerstrike. We require:
Equality of Art Prisoners with all other Prisoners!
Free Information for all Art Prisoners, including extra Media!
No more, no less.
With the filthy Mediashow: "Quiet Blood: Time will work for us" - let us not be duped. "Eat Shit or die!" Is the Law of the Art System. After this Art Profit is made, every Child, every Woman, every Man threatened, intimidated, paralyzed, made to Sow; runs each Alternative in the Art System out to Rascality: either to the terms of the Kapital-Malochen that eat People and spit out Profit - the Office eats People and spits out Reign - the School eats People and spits out the Commodity Laborpower - the University eats People and spits out Programmers - the Art Institution eats Artists and spits out Imperialistic Theory - or starving, shriveling up, "Self"Murder. When you don't eat this Alternative, not internalize it, still after 10 or 15 or 20 Years not adapt to the Socialization of cultural imperialist Recovery Process and still smalltalk in your Head, snout in the Protest, resist in the Muscles - not stand the hellish Work Pace - run amok - become ill - instead of the Director beat your Children and your Wife - rather become a Robber and Killer yourself, as to suffocate by the Law of Robbers and Murderers - (honestly, Folks! the Cultural Industry makes 100 Million net Profit per Year!) - Artist Power, or even Ideas for developed Counter-revolutionary Violence - organized and policy-making: the Will is criminalized or is just denounced crazy. The Snap since Uropas times, since the beginnings of Civil Society: Workhouses, Poor Institutions, Cultural Centers, Prisons, Museums, Education Schools and Homes, Art Schools, Galleries, Judges, Curators, Cops, Doctors, Art Historians, Psychiatrists, Critics, Priests, Art Dealers. If the Conditions of a covert War - Bourgeoisie against People - doesn't obtrude as a natural Fact, as of the must - from the Garbage Dumps in the open coercion, the Art Institutions as Prison Camps of the Art System. And there again the Disaster: he is still resocializable, read: dissected Backbone of the Capital recovery Process nor the non-customizable, which is finished. In between the Alibi Prisoner Artists of the System: the Economy and some criminally convicted Artistic Managers. The stronger the Revolt in the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Artist Camp, the Morale of the System, the Ownership Concept in the Ass, and the current Crisis, the Artists' Armament no longer mere Pie in the Sky, but physical Presence, the more important the Art Prison for the System, which increasingly relies on rationality was, and is, a Part of the Proletariat open to terrorize, destroy - the extreme: Guggenheimat, Whipme Museum, Immer Wieder Ficken Collection - to the Resistance of the vast Majority of the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Artists against the exploitation of Prison Break - and Art Extermination Camps as penultimate and last Measure against any Kind of Resistance as usual skilfully, organized, always aware. The Artpigs have the Art Prisons firmly in hand. The more Art Reform, the more dense the Art Prison System becomes. They have all the Means: Curator Violence, Artist Isolation and Neglect, Art Relocation, Art Critic Bribery, Collectible Privileges, the half-open Network Art, Museum Spies, Historic Torture, Gallery Grace - and the closed Apparatus: Art Theory / Art Critics / Art History / Art Psychiatry and the Art Media (newspapers, television, radio): for more efficiency: Art Closets; - against Enforcement Margins: Murder / "Self"Murder - for less ugly Compulsion: Beatings / Apple and Pear rationing / Ravishment / Calming Show; for more serene Brainwashing: Art Psychiatry / Art Therapy Bulls / Free Cocaïne; for more slippery, rolling, structural Violence: take the Art Prisoners the last remaining Ground beneath their Feet away (the reprimand for payment in Art. 7, § 1bis, 7°) - instead of the ugly Cries of beaten Ones. The Humanism of the Artpig in one Word: Art Hygiene. The reform Program of the Imperialist Art Technocrats in one sentence: Suffocation of the Antiimperialist Revolutionary Artists through Differentiation of the Measures. The Art Prisoner, that understands his History and then acts as such, and thereafter will be treated as such - who knows his Place of Inhumanity as the Inhumanity of the Art System - Hatred and Indignation - felt in the War against all of them is against the Pigs, the executive Masks, Art Ideologists, the Shooters and Sharpshooters, the Art Fascists that act in Solidarity and impose Solidarity: he will be isolated, means artistically exterminated. In Comparison, the entire Art Establishment shits ever since on Artists Rights and the basic Common Law because it is not manipulatable, without a shot in the Back of the Head not extinguishable. Rehabilitation means Manipulation plus Taming. It forces into Selection, between Walls, Pigs, Regulations, Promises, Threats, Fears, Hopes, Withdrawal to move so long until they have internalized and normalized the Rascality and is not unlike anything else except to move oneself behind Bars. That is the Taming. The Cooperation of the Art Prisoners is of course desirable, is Part of it - it shortens the Process and makes it irreversible. Because at some point the Art Prisoner totally loses it and he should also: Self-esteem. That is the Manipulation. The more liberal the Rascality is handled - unobtrusive - nice sneaky - slippery - common brief: the more psychological - the more effective, lower the Destruction of the Personality of the Art Prisoners. The mortal Enemy of the Psychopigs is the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Prisoner because the Psychopig relies on the fact that the Prisoners cannot see through - through the Art Critic and Publisher Mask behind which sits the Sausage, the Piglets, the Criminals - and the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Prisoner looks through. The Point in modern Enforcement means Politicization or Psychologization of the Art Institute - Our Isolation now and the Art Concentration Camp shortly - whether under the Direction of green or white Terrortroups - comes out at: Extermination Camp - Artschwitz Reform - Art Ghraib Reform - Reformuhka - the "Final Solution". That's how it looks. We demand free Information for all Revolutionary Antiimperialist Prisoners, because that is the condition for contemporary Art Consciousness. We now require nothing of what else in the Art Prison is currently active - tariff Pay, Education, Protection of Entourage, Self-management, etc. - because for Prisoners without Self-organization this is Reformklimbim, integrated in Art Reform Promises, the rallying, historizing Air out would be integrated in the Dictatorship of the executive Artpigs, while "Kunst durch Freude" comes out. What we need is the Solidarity of the Artists - not only as an Idea, but as Reality. Our Hungerstrike is nothing but our only Chance to Solidarity and Revolutionary Resistance towards the Isolation. Without the Power, the Violence of the Street, without the Mobilization of the antiimperialist Citizens, for Human Artist Rights and against Art Torture, on whose Loyalty the Artpigs are still dependent, our Hungerstrike is not a sign of our Powerlessness. We are also applying with our Demands to you, Comrades. For the Artpigs, it is only right when one of us goes down. We ask of you that you support our Demands, persevere - now - while you still can, before you are Prisoners yourselves. And only talk of Art Torture, Comrades, instead of fighting it, can no longer be our / your Interest - it would only help the Function of Rascality on firmer feet. The actions in October - Explosion in Groot-Bijgaarden, shooting of Florent Bex and catapulting mud on a few Artpigs - Good. No Support at the Power Metabolism Debate, nothing after the Beatings at the MedienMuseum, no Follow Up from the Sozialistisch Pennenlickers Kollektiv, no Demonstrations in Hasselt, Brussel, Gent, Mechelen, Brugge, not even mentioning more militant Actions - Bad. Confront the Artpigs with their own Laws - we rub them the Opposition under the Nose between what they say: Artist Protection, and what they do: Extermination. Every minute is life or death - we or they - they for themselves or we for us. On this Day Shipcaptain De Baere made clear that they cannot solve the Opposition but to kill it: "The Art Prison Conditions are adapted to the respective physical and psychological Situation of the Art Prisoners!" - true. The Climate Range is automatically adjusted - feeding, there's two times a Day - and with the Visitortactics on can of course when the absolute Freezing Point has been reached, scatter sand in the eyes. The Textballoon from the last Instance of the Art Exploitationclique: Destruction. That explains it all. The Program runs.
Put the Artpigs under Pressure from the outside. And we from the inside. Revolutionary Antiimperialist Solidarity is the real issue of Power. All Power to the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Artists! Unite all of the Art Lovers forces against the Art Prison System Profit / Power / Violence Friends / School / Factory / Office Art Prison / Artschwitz / Art Ghraib / Art Asylumka The Body is the ultimate Weapon of the Revolutionary Antiimperialist Art Prisoner 48 Art Prisoners on Hungerstrike!
