Re: Protest Legal Action against Manifesta Curators
May I ask one or two questions without the legitimation of being born in Cyprus, without parents from Cyprus, without passing an exam in greek before I am allowed to speak/write here in this forum, in a foreign (yes, of course: colonialist, imperialist) language (english is, as you will easily realize, a foreign language for me), about something that is happening now in Cyprus?
What are you doing in this forum? Are you responsible people in the art scene, are you interested in contemporary art and critical discourse or are you just in it for some entertainment or in order to defend your greek cypriot narcissism?
There will be legal proceedings against the curators of Manifesta 6. This is an extreme escalation of censorship by a quasi-official greek cypriot institution on this beautiful island called Cyprus, in this less beautiful 'Republic' of Cyprus. Come on, greek cypriots: start thinking about these quotation marks - quotation marks that you so often use talking about the northern part of the island, start thinking about your - more quotation marks - 'democracy' and, to use a concept developped in political sciences, its political culture instead of continuing this pseudo discussion (pseudo-, as in 'pseudo state').
