On the 26th June the ominously named Myspace Safety and Security division removed an image from our Myspace profile of an artwork from our current exhibition, Tirol Isch Lei Oans by Viennese artist collective Gods Entertainment, citing that their website is "for people as young as 13, so we can't have certain kinds of pics (nude/sexually explicit, violence)," and that the image was in violation of their Terms of Use. But what are the motives behind legislating such an overtly Christian anti-nudity, anti-sex, anti-violence moral agenda? Why should we make art that stands in conflict with such values and draws these motives into sharper focus? Luckily Umelec magazine, the magazine arm of the Divus body, has tackled these issues and constructed them into an easily consumable crucifix. The following is quoted from Blasphemy / Examples of Anti-Social Phenomena in Art by Ivan Mecl: The only pleasant thing left over from Christianity is the reservation of luxury and democracy. Outside this reservation, there is an exotic world of chaos inhabited by enemies. Probably the best, albeit unintentional caricature of this world concept, is the current film industry. The soiled protagonist, ragged and rain-drenched, is being beaten up by humanoid monsters gone berserk. After he disposes of them thanks to his agility—he usually manages to get out of the way of some dashing furious brute, who kills himself on the next bridge pillar—and beats to death their cynical leader with a statuette of a cruel local god. The hero returns home. As he is getting off the plane in New York, London or Frankfurt, the illuminators let us properly see his Western aristocratic features. Then we are shown pictures of progress, wealth and peace. A city from a bird’s eye view, flying over some nice central cluster-of-skyscrapers, a yacht there, the streets are full of colorful cars, mothers with prams, and grinning candy sellers. In the evening, having had a good diner the hero settles by the fireside with his wife and no more than two children, and narrates how glad he is to be back home. That is about how the agitprop programs for the life in socialist countries used to look like. As no one would watch similar odes to capitalism, we can see them at the beginning of every expensive movie, which we gladly pay for. Principles of Contemporary Blasphemy The story of the main hero doesn’t end with this propaganda. Although he is glad to be at home, he will still return to hell to establish democracy. We could call this Christian romanticism. Christian romanticism is based on a few historic mistakes. The first mistake is equality. According to western morality, all people are equal. But this first assumption doesn’t take groups into account that don’t consider it an advantage to be equal to western man. He is not, from the point of thinking and doing, considered an ideal. Another mistake is Man’s requirement of animals—he wants them to obey his laws, to do no harm, and to be ready to be properly eaten. Animals haven’t managed to notice these laws yet, as they remain on a significantly higher level of organization (than people). Yet another mistake is the faith in the ability of determining the degree of responsibility and the boundaries of morals. The result of this is torturing of children by forcing them into principles of self-reflection that in fact represent the frustrations and prejudices of the adult Western man applied on an innocent being. He usually prays moral to those who don’t care for it at all. Children’s inattentiveness to this teaching is regarded as a sin, a crime. It follows that the adult western individual is not able to deal with himself and therefore cannot stand being himself. And when he can’t bear himself, someone will get the worst of it. The biggest mistake is the understanding of time in relation to reality. Every non-Christian child knows that what used to be is no longer, and what will be doesn’t exist yet. The desire to capture time and to draw all the past junk into the presence makes our world slowly uninhabitable and the result of this is the book culture—therefore a significant sin. By foretelling and depicting the future the western man brings about all possible disasters - because nothing will happen that wasn’t first invented. The western man cannot live in the present. He lives in memories and expectations. And that is not all that he managed to spoil his and other’s life with. We can’t wonder much about the amount of these mistakes. Western Christian civilization is founded on an application of sometimes intentional misinterpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ, which itself is not clear enough. Not everyone loves him for that, although the world loves the adorably clumsy. If only he had not claimed that God was his father. All these mistakes then define the modern way of blasphemy. Some unbelievers will learn about their wrongdoing only after they are revealed. Blasphemy today

Case No 71839J
AGENT SIKES Good morning, Officer Slanski. My name is Claire Sikes. I’m with the Feds, and they have yanked me out of my cozy bed to wrap up this mess.

SLANSKI Mess? I guess that’s one word for it.

AGENT SIKES OK, let’s just step through the formalities.

SLANSKI That’s not an FBI badge.

AGENT SIKES No, it’s not. Officer Slanski, do you understand that this incident on the seventh of February?


AGENT SIKES And do you understand that what you say today is held to be under the force of oath, and any deviations from the truth will constitute perjury and be punishable as such?

SLANSKI Do I need a lawyer here, or a union rep?

AGENT SIKES Do you understand?


AGENT SIKES So. February seventh.

SLANSKI I was walking my beat—

AGENT SIKES Walking? Isn’t there a civilian patrol for that?

SLANSKI I like to do it myself every few days. People will tell you stuff if they know you.

AGENT SIKES Very commendable I’m sure.

SLANSKI I got a 10-48 to the Star Chamber so I got there as fast as I could.

AGENT SIKES Star Chamber?

SLANSKI That’s what they call the building. They used to print the Star out of there, back when there were newspapers.

AGENT SIKES But the building is empty now.


AGENT SIKES And locals call it the Star Chamber.

SLANSKI (no response)

AGENT SIKES Officer Slanski? You seem to be taking a long time to answer the question.

SLANSKI I’m trying to guess how much you know already.

Why don’t you assume I know everything, and go from there? It will save time.

SLANSKI No, it’s just called the Star Building. But underground, where the printing presses used to be, there’s a big open space. That’s the Star Chamber.

AGENT SIKES Which is a …nightclub?

SLANSKI It’s just a place. Sometimes people get together there. Sometimes they play some music. It’s not very organized, as far as I know.

AGENT SIKES As far as you know? I would think it would be your job to find out exactly how organized it was.

SLANSKI I guess I’m not a very good cop.

AGENT SIKES Actually, you know, I was looking at the stats for your districts. Over the last eight years, when you have been shift boss, districts under your supervision have consistently reported violent crime rates 15 to 20 percent below comparable districts matched by demo-profiles.

SLANSKI There’s good people in the district.

AGENT SIKES Curiously, your districts also consistently under-report violations of the Freedom Act.

SLANSKI It’s pretty sleepy out here.

AGENT SIKES Criminal speech, negligent morale, that sort of thing.

SLANSKI People just want to watch TV.

AGENT SIKES The difference is, citizens tend to report violent crime, whereas usually law enforcement officers are driving Freedom Act investigations. But you don’t have much of an arrest record on that score.

SLANSKI There’s a lot of law-abiding folks in my district. Just bad luck, I guess.

AGENT SIKES (no response)

SLANSKI (no response)

AGENT SIKES Did you know any of the dead?


AGENT SIKES The dead. There were 112 people locked in an underground nightclub you permitted to operate in your district. They were murdered over the course of 2 days, hunted down and torn to bloody pieces. I’m asking if you knew any of them.


AGENT SIKES Do you find yourself wondering if they would have been alive if you had shut that place down? I mean, if I was you, that’d be all I could think

SLANSKI (no response)

AGENT SIKES You answered the 10-48 and went immediately to the Star Chamber.

SLANSKI When I got there a couple of feds were already stringing quarantine tape.

AGENT SIKES Could you hear anything?

SLANSKI Screams. Screaming and yelling. People beating on the doors

AGENT SIKES By Feds you mean people like me.


AGENT SIKES What was your role?

SLANSKI Crowd control. Some phone calls got out. We had people showing up trying to get into the Star building.

AGENT SIKES And your job was to keep them back.

SLANSKI People had kids in there. Brothers and sisters.

AGENT SIKES And according to these notes, you did your job very well.

SLANSKI It wasn’t my wife or kid dying in there.

AGENT SIKES But you were “sick about the fucking feds and you wanted to kill someone.”

SLANSKI The psychologist? You have a bug in the fucking office of the police psychologist?

AGENT SIKES Don’t be paranoid, Officer Slanski. The psychologist turned over her records voluntarily.

SLANSKI Of course she did.

AGENT SIKES Apparently she isn’t as willing to look the other way as you are when it comes to subversive thoughts. About some things, maybe—but in the face of a terrorist incident which had just taken the lives of 112 Americans….
