this made me smile

Words in giant letters written by Rumanian artists Anetta Mona Chişa and Lucía Tkáčová on the facade of the Rumanian pavilion at Giardini:

20% REASONS NOT TO BE HERE (at the biennale)

- invisibility is resistance
- not to decorate the gardens of the white male
- because jan verwoert said "forget the national" and we like him
- venice biennale=showroom of western hegemony
- guilt
- not to jeopardize our place in the barricades
- art=revolution=spectacle=capital
- because we are 1 communist + 1 socialist feminist
- antinomadism
- venice biennale is a choking-on-money mercantilist fossil
- the zoo effect
- we have nothing to wear for the opening
- it's easier to criticize a show when you're not in it
- the curse of boosted expectations (2nd novel syndrome)
- to keep off who's hot & who's not
- tourist menu sucks
- to make art the way we feel without considering its potential to succeed

few:  for many events, roughly 80% of the
 effect comes from 20% of the causes
