An entire A4 page of unintelligible, pretentious blather disguised as a clever press release really shouldn't keep you from visiting Animism - a long-term touring exhibition loosely based around the idea of... errr... uhmm... the technological/digital renaissance of animism?! o_O
Because, after all, we all like dancing skeletons...
Silly Symphonies - The Skeleton Dance by Walt Disney, 1929
... and spiders on crotches... no?!
Replace Me by Rosemarie Trockel, 2009 - click to enlarge
... oh, and did I mention that remote-controlled pigeons (yes, I know "buse" is Frenchistani for buzzard, but this rendering looks way more pigeony than buzzardy to me, so shuuuuush!) will be on show too?

À propos pigeons or buzzards dressed like pigeons, this painfully poetic sequence from C'est arrivé près de chez vous featuring Benoît Poelvoorde needs to be watched at least once a
week day (preferably under the parental guidance and watchful eyes of Dr. med. Klav):
Oh, and least we forget the obligatory art historical question (very basic level this time): Which infamous painting is Rosemarie Trockel's artwork Replace Me (see above) based on? Artist, title, date, please. Once again, you will win a random item from my smelly 'ol Drawer ov Doom. First correct answer in the comments section wins. Good luck.
Gods, this blog is so informative!
