do you really want to sell a bit Ganahl?

I just spent 10 minutes under a hot shower meditating:

methodological promiscuity, fish egoism and satisfaction

then I said to myself: decarlo is more interested in my emails then in Marx.

let’s talk economy

if I make READING MARX with the students of giancarlo dipietrantonio then the production will already eat a lot of money and the possibility of selling them - the pictures - in our ideological climate is almost equivalent to zero. Contrary to that: if I make these pathetic drawings of my emails the immediate recognition of the artistic value will be superior to that of my marxist photographs - therefore with a higher probability to convert them into American money in order to pay my rent here / by the way: the sun is too beautiful here in New York

wall painting, 80 cm; communication project

Hotmail addresses have been used by me in several shows before. They help me to communicate on line with a number of people who I sometimes might meet, but who I most often don’t meet again. The experience of on line communities - though individualized and filtered through interests in art and culture - I find quite interesting since it is often socially more real and gratifying then actual relationships that are difficult to maintain when permanently under stress or on travels. It is also a way of life emblematic for a technological society and a certain understanding of new urban life. For people like me who have the written word as a major medium of understanding the world this way of electronic communication is a kind of social and intellectual life support with all its it sense and poetic non-sense.

Marx e ancora Marx, Toni Negri

Translation:

massimo It is true, the reflection of Karl Marx on the retina of collectors reduces the potential of the classical change (and these my beautiful fotos of young people reading marx with me risk to end like all the other ganahl-works: in storage) I am waiting for your reply

massimo I like this >no object< (in English computer/email : ”no subject” ) of your head of this interface. Today, I received a note from a unknown woman with the object (subject) <S&M> .. nice: then I asked her: who are you? where did you find my address and other things because she wrote with some familiarity (making references to a discourse that I once hold 5 years ago ... on line: discussion on G. Deleuze’s Venus in Furs, Leopold von Sacher masoch... Then, she wrote me that she found my address on a site entitled: sadomasochism and death ... frightening / ((now, I understand a lot of things / there always were very interesting persons who wrote and visited me ... I never understood where they came from))) All my greetings and a nice end of the year: r
