Well, you'll be aware of the 'bodyworks' (Name?) exhibition, where that German fella had made things like vases out of the heads of dead people (heads still attached). I don't think of that as reactionary art. I think of r. art as something that challenges the human condition, not belittles it. Was there anything profound in him putting flowers in the body of somebody's mother or father or son or daughter? I don't think so. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm old fashioned. Maybe I'm amazed....
As for this, go. If you like it, you like it, if you don't, you don't. At least you can say you were there. NB - if its a man pulling slices of beef out of his arse then don't go. And certainly, stay clear of the steak candienne that day.
