    This is laughable.  Get rid of all politicians and empower art as ruler ? What does he even mean, this sounds like some angry teenage anarchist.  He wants art as ruler so he can make money, through the free market.  So many contradictions…  As if the swastika only has to do with itself ?  Does language and the sounds coming out of your mouth only have to do with itself Jonathan Messe ?  Because if they did why do you think you can communicate with them ? Why do these sounds, which create language, communicate meaning.  "Its all a human construct, so we should do away with it…"  God, why doesn't he get an education…  He says destroy the relics and the monuments while he is creating his own.  He's just riffing off the post-war german expressionistic train and trying to stand out.  He's trying so hard to sound like some important intellectual by pulling the old binary tricks and repeating his meaningless garbage.  People eat this us because he has nothing to say.

    I'm so overwhelmed by how funny, provocative, surreal, fascinating and absurd the video I just watched was, that I don't know what to say. So I'll just say…

    "Scarlett Johansson ist totale kunst!"

    Danke Jonathan. Du bringst hier innerhalb von eine paar Minuten viel große Wahrheit zum Ausdruck, dieses Paralleluniversum der Kunst und seine Gluonen, die Werke die die Kausalität der Realität zusammenhalten.

    Die Frage bleibt…: Warum labert er so viel…? Der Meese ! Es ist im Grunde genommen  unerträglich, seine Sprachlaberei. Ich würde lieber mal ein Bild von Meese sehen können, das sich beispielsweise mit der Kunst eines VERMEER oder REMBRANDT messen kann. Das wird er nicht schaffen, denn er müsste aufhören, so viel zu reden. Maler male… sag ich jetzt einmal.

    most so called artists went to school to learn art which is like asking someone to teach you how to love…art is freedom,you dnt teach art to learn art! its free,when you have it,then you have it. you dnt need to be technically skilled to become an artist but CRAFTSMAN does…art is like love,you dnt know it until you feel it…he maybe childish but his a real ARTIST to me!

    I love this, it really brought a smile to my face. I think this man is completely out of his fucking mind and he's better off than most of us. He feels free and simple and happy with his life. You can criticize him if you please to do so, but it means nothing in reality, to him or anyone else.

    So what the guy is trying to say by Art is actually Life. If we replace the word "Art" with "Life" we understand that he is a guy who embraced Life in all it's absurdity and that he tries to be like Life while painting. Things just happens on that canvas and its enough, because important is that things happen. His problem is when he gets out of his studio and the spell is broken and he realises that now he is the canvas and that life paints on him. So then he politely ask for a dictatur, for the world to become his canvas and for him to be the unpredictable Life. makes sense! right!?!

    I feel that when this guy goes home he takes off the fake beard and wig and makes grilled cheese for his kids. He lives in Akron, OH has never voted anything but Republican except for one time in a mayoral race in 2002 when he voted for a man from his father's platoon from Vietnam. He doesn't actually speak German but has memorized four or five speeches phonetically.

    These are good points from the idealist's standpoint of somebody who already has a market for what they make. I agree that our egos are in some way disgusting, but for those of us who have to go out and push our artistic perspective, they're necessary. In a way, I'm happy that Meese's art is out there, because these extremist perspectives widen the spectrum on both ends. However, in reality the art game is one of survival and competition, and someone who has to play it because their art does not yet have a market is not any less of an artist.

    His performance make me feel free from my worries for a moment and thinking brighter and wider. So, it is art for me. Maybe its because he is making a fool out of him. He is not talking intellectuel. He doesnt give the message: I think i am important. So is nice. Its confusing to see something like this nowadays. Everything is so serious. YOu must know who you are. You must do the right thing. YOu must be like this or that. Its so much pressure on our littles lives. Thats sad. we are wasting life with this pressure.

Put honey on anything and it will taste good, name one thing that would taste better with honey on it. I've you actually imagine honey in fucking bolanasge, you'd think it would taste bad at first but when really concentrate and think about how the tastes would combine you realize it would be fucking awesome, the only thing to consider is wether or not to put cheese on, i'm 100% it would fucking amazing without cheese but unsure about cheese. If it does work with cheese, im talking honey and cheese in fucking spag bolanasge and somehow the texture works out then your got pure fucking gold.
