MANIFESTO
by The Surrealist Séance / 2000

The Urinal is a hoax! The Gallery is a Hoax! Art Critics Are a Hoax!

Modern Art & Society Predicated Upon a faulty Fundament

Assi9 Art Critics point to the innocent chess player Marcel DuCHAMP and his urinal as elevating the COMMONPLACE to art. The urinal was PROvocation, PISSING IN THE MUSEUM. HOW much wIlL U tolERate? It’s a mockery. If you place anything in the museum – even a urinal. Idiot art critics and overfed patrons with too much money will gaze it through their OPera glASSes and ponder it’s lack of meaning. DUchamp laffs at you and pisses on your armani shoes. IN those days ART meant something to the overfed ART patRONIZERS and they were incensed. DuChAmp laughed and silently whispered in the dark armory. HOW MUCH WILL YOU TOLERATE!?!

Modern society is a laughable GALLery. We are boiling alive. We are the great couch potato famine, boiling alive literally through globalWARMing and enVIRONmental HOLOcaust. Our spirits and minds are boiling alive with mind-numbing daily onslaughts. SCANdals and corRUPTION by those who deem themselves OUR superiors, OUR rule MARKERS, and mock us from the GALLeries of congress and the pulPITS. The POLICE murder innocent people everyday, priests molest small childREN, AND politicians take whATEver they want in WHATever Way they chOOse from sex scandals and steaming bestsellers to stolEN ElECTIONs and too BIG campaign contributions. StILL we sit PLACID, stewing in our own URINALS. We read the paper on the toilet; our bOWEls unmoved and the world screams; HOW MUCH WILL YOU TOLERATE!?!

WE ARE DUMMIES WE ARE NUMB DUMMIES NUMMIES THE BOOKS TELL US WE ARE DUMMIES AND WE BUY THEM BUY THE FUCKING TRUCKLOAD NUMBLY.

We are prodded and poked and experiMENTed upon and it produces only a momentary bobble WEEBLES WOBBLE BUT THEY DON”T FALL DOWN. We will not jumP UP to defend ourSELVES. Some do through violence. They are drugged, jailed and ridiculed; set apart as an “Other” – a MONSTER born not of this world. Some self-medicate and they are jailed and ridiculed and again from every angle we are increasingly PASSIVE…

HOW MUCH / HOW MUCH / HOW MUCH / HOW MUCH
HOW MUCH WILL YOU TOLERATE!?!

The POLITICANS WANT to know. TELEVANGELISTS WANT to know. Artists want TO KNOW. VIRTUAL WORLD ADVERTISING EXECUTIVES PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW.

¡do U no!
