Art as Self-Promotion

I purchased 24 30-second commercial spots on two New York television channels, Channel 4 and Channel 9, and 21 spots on three Los Angeles channels, Channel 5, Channel 11 and Channel 13. My «ad»consisted of a series of names: «Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Chris Burden.» The series was repeated twice and followed by the disclaimer «paid by Chris Burden - artist. (...) The first five names were chosen from the results of a nationwide survey which showed them to be the most well-known artists to the general public.
- Chris Burden

Vvoi, something happend with your RSS-feed, my reader got an XML-Parser Error and now doesnt detect a feed at all anymore ?

Your previous posts had been very interesting, only the last one of self-promoting artists, was either not finished, or I didnt understand it.

Best regards, Hans
