Well, obviously 'they' didn't need them anymore.

Submitter just doesn't understand art.

Can't you understand the parallels he's trying to make?

Paper: white
Jews: white from malnutrition

Paper: thin
Jews: turned thin

Paper: can scrunch into ball
Jews: can be concentrated

Paper: burns into ashes
Jews: burned into ashes

It just goes on and on (much like the one produced by Schindler, which was also written on paper).

Why is or was there still ash in these crematoriums?

Why didn't someone go in, clean all that crap out, get some rabbis to bless them and do some sort of ceremony before burying them or doing something with them that would satisfy the religious tradition?

They just left it all there?

Talk about brott mot griftesfriden!

My great uncle Fritz tied zyklon b canisters to the back of his Volkswagen after his wedding to aunt helga. It was so festive, I baked a kike. Ethnic cleansing. It's funny!

DNRTFA. Hoping he did it to raise awareness of something like . . . say, the fact that there are only ~10 million Jews in the world today, instead of simply being morbid.

Yeah this guy tried to sell me one of these paintings for fifty dollars. I said "fourty dollars!? What do you need thirty dollars for??"

Better bury that painting in Israel - with pomp and ceremony - just to be sure.

Like they did those bars of soap that weren't made from people.

About 15 years ago I got to meet an elderly gentleman with numbers tattooed on his arm on a school field trip. That was pretty moving to listen to him speak.

To be fair, I think this raises the bar on the shock art category.
 
2012-12-06 08:40:21 PM  
I don't know, I think I'd rather my remains be turned into art rather than apparently left in the corner of a crematorium for another 5 decades.

Nowadays, if a parent sent their child on a school field trip and the kid came home with numbers tattooed on his arm, the parents would probably sue the school district. I guess things were a lot different back then.

TheWizard: To be fair, I think this raises the bar on the shock art category.


Art is like seduction. If you are obviously trying to hard, it has the opposite impact. You try to hard to pick up a girl, she'll kick your ass to the curb. You try to hard to make shock art, nobody will be impressed. This is just as stupid as the guy who put the crucifix in piss. I'd kick him out of any gallery and say "Come back when you're an artist."
 
2012-12-06 08:49:53 PM  
That's some juicy art there.

Why not make something beautiful in the wake of tragedy? Sure, the artist is a hyperbullshiatter, but if the art is halfway decent, I wholeheartedly endorse this product or event.

This is America (the comments, not the artist). Where we mire in tragedy and refuse to let anything meaningful or productive come of it.

What should we be doing with the ashes? Sprinkle them in our coffee?

SquiggsIN: fusillade762: What should we be doing with the ashes? Sprinkle them in our coffee?

wrong article. that's the cat poop beans in the coffee for 125k pounds.


That gives me an idea! Feed cats coffee beans then incinerate them and make coffee out of the ashes.

Reminds me of this, from Red Skelton: "Algae saw a Bear. The Bear saw Algae. The Bear was Bulgy. The bulge was Algae." (I always thought of Algae as a person, and this was how his name was spelled. Apologies if this is wrong. ;)

Paint from the ashes of Jews?

Well, they were good for something, then.

He could have painted naked ladies with it. Nothing quite like using fifty shades of grey as a source AND a material.

This sounds like the plot for some sort of supernatural revenge thriller. Perhaps a Syfy original movie. Octojew?

If one views good art as something that forces people to think about it, this artist would be, simply by his choice of media, one of the best artists of all time.

Unfortunately, his art is crap. Here's one of his "sound art" pieces:

No, I couldn't actually sit through it, it's too dull.

santadog: Said Painting


Ah good, someone found it. Yep, crap art. The only interesting thing about it is the media, otherwise it looks like it's something that wasn't good enough for even the most obsessive three year old kid's helicopter parent to have bothered sticking to the fridge.
