Apparently, the stabbing took place near this exhibit.

Just sayin’.

"attack that was wrongly interpreted by onlookers as performance art" As bullshit as the art.

Artists are a herd not a pack.

I blame Neil Buchanan.

Not really surprising. That those are Miami Beach Police OTOH...this is all some sort of Truman Show. None of this is real.

N.B. the following sentence from your link:

"The "Swamp of Sagittarius" safe haven...is both performative and a service to those who come by, and most importantly, Wara explains, 'It's about wisdom.'" (Emphasis supplied.)

Society needs to accept and embrace the differently sane.

I have written about one of the artists involved in that installation. Plus ça change and all that.

What? Too REAL for you hipster douchebags?

Oh, no, any hipsters thought it was perfectly real . . . .

Other witnesses later thought the police tape cordoning the area was an art installation.

I expect the President will use his TV address tonight to call for knife control.

Not wanting to say anything, as though they discriminated against, or hated art...

The mind boggles, it really it really does . . .

So all that ISIS stuff: the beheadings, the man-on-fire-in-a-cage, the gay-thrown-from-a-high-building, the blow-up-the-man-with-explosives, could they just be performance pieces of art, misinterpreted by the public? Is there an (accredited) art critic here that can truly tell us the truth?

Hal

. . . the blow-up-the-man-with-explosives, . . .

Oh dear.

A paranoid schizo goes off her meds and nobody can tell the difference between her and the rest of the crowd.

Until she gets artistic or something...
