=oversaturated queer perspective a drawing a day.
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
Iggy Azalea on fb trying to school my poc friends on why its okay she’s dropping the n-bomb. This after she just dropped that ewww cultural appropriative ripe vid in the last few days!!
can I puke now.
this horse weave wearing dizzy ass bitch though
someone please stab this bitch
If you needed another reason to hate this racist appropriating piece of shit
I always find it interesting when white people feel like they have to explain the n-word to black people.
Its not okay. Never will be okay.
i find this very troubling. i wonder how much truth
and its true. racism runs rampant.
This is a video i created on anti-blackness.
Multiple times I have been forced to endure the constant voice of whiteness and racism that many black college students have to. I’ve been accused of having a black-only scholarship, called the “n-word” or ghetto. Then I was scolded if I reacted violently and told I was backing stereotypes.
So i decided what would it be like if white had to endure the hatred of blacks without any chance to defend themselves and looking at the things they caused.
y’all need to watch this right now
Carl Jung, from the anthology Psychological Reflections, editted by Jolande Jacobi, 1953 (via fuckyeahmadpride)
you gotta be really fucking strong.
“We will not have great questions decided
by irrelevant agencies
Our husbands shall not come to us,
reeking with carnage, for caresses and
Our sons shall not be taken from us to
All that we have been able to teach them
of charity, mercy and patience.
We women of one country will be too
tender of those of another
To allow our sons to be trained to injure
From the bosom of the devastated earth
a voice goes up with our own.
It says “Disarm, Disarm! The sword of
murder is not the balance of justice.”
(from Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day Proclamation, 1870)
“The only reason I’m putting myself out here and talking about anything is because there’s been so many trans* girls on Youtube or that I’ve read about that put themselves out there and made their knowledge available that I feel like I have to return the favor. You know, when I was 14 years old, if I was watching House of Style, watching a transsexual being interviewed and talking about that, then it would’ve completely changed my life, you know… I would’ve felt saved.”
