maybe 'Auto- destructive art is an attack on capitalist values and the drive to nuclear annihilation'


Auto-destructive art demonstrates man's power to accelerate disintegrative processes of nature and to order them.
Auto-destructive art mirrors the compulsive perfectionism of arms manufacture - polishing to destruction point



Gustav Metzger 'Auto- destructive art is an attack on capitalist values and the drive to nuclear annihilation.'

Cool and funny and thought provoking.

Why make art that destructs its self?

Why not?

I am not quite sure that Metzger's thoughts quite hang together love his photo of 1995 Reclaim the Streets, I think it might be one of Dave Morris of Greenpeace London and McLibel fame kids on the car, or may be I just mis-remembered that.

Auto-destructive criticism of auto-destructive art here if you are interested.
