Das ist der Humor den, ich mag. Trump will van Gogh für die privaten Räume im Weissen Haus leihen, Guggenheim Chefkuratorin bietet goldene Toilette namens “America” des zeitgenössischen Künstlers America” Maurizio Cattelana an. Gerade auch Kuratoren brauchen Rückgrat.
The emailed response from the Guggenheim’s chief curator to the White House was polite but firm: The museum could not accommodate a request to borrow a painting by Vincent van Gogh for President and Melania Trump’s private living quarters.
Instead, wrote the curator, Nancy Spector, another piece was available, one that was nothing like “Landscape With Snow,” the 1888 van Gogh rendering of a man in a black hat walking along a path in Arles, France, with his dog.
The curator’s alternative: an 18-karat, fully functioning, solid gold toilet — an interactive work titled “America” that critics have described as pointed satire aimed at the excess of wealth in this country.
