What To Do With Tom Wilson?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The NHL’s ultimate decision whether and for what duration to suspend Tom Wilson for twice body-slamming Artemi Panarin, who will miss the final three games of the season, to the ice after the Washington recidivist went upside a prone and defenseless Pavel Buchnevich’s head with a sucker punch during a second-period incident at the Garden on Monday will not be a reflection on Wilson, but instead on the league, itself. This was not only bush-leagu...

Karen Kurczynski—Jorn: Critique Is Secondary, Creation Is Primary

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn ...the Lettrists stated in 1953, "Oblivion (l'oubli) is our dominant passion." The original term "oubli" signifies at once forgetting, intoxication, and anonymity. (165) p. 183—excerpt from Jorn What one expresses through destruction is critique. Critique is a secondary reaction to something primary which already exists. What one expresses through artistic creation is joy of life. Art is primary action in relation to the unknown. The French have b...

Karen Kurczynski—Détournement and Sexual Objectification

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn p. 186—in an endnote Baum ["The Sex of the Situationist International", 2008] defends the SI's use of erotic images of women as critical détournements. I would argue that those images fail to accomplish the SI's critical goals, however, because even out of context they continue to function as heterosexist images of the female body as passive object of desire. Without yet having read Baum's article, I'm predisposed to agree with KK's assessment here....

Karen Kurczynski—Jorn on Abstraction and Inhumanity

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn ...this renewed interest in painting [in the 1950s] had an important social function as a profound rejection of what critics perceived as the threatening aspects of the spread of mass-media technologies mostly experienced on a screen. (196) ...cultural critics who contrasted the material specificity of painting as the ultimate medium of sensory engagement to the alienating effects of the mass media, despite the media's own claims to collapse dista...

Karen Kurczynski—Jorn's Artistic Reality

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn p. 201—quoting directly a "somewhat humorous" passage of Jorn's: What an artwork represents is quite insignificant. What the artist believes it represents is also insignificant. The effect the artist wanted to achieve is itself without interest. What the observer believes he sees in the artwork is in itself insignificant. The only thing that means something is the objective and real effect the art has exercised on the observer. That is the artisti...

Kindle Keyboard Question

So I found my first Kindle I owned, a Kindle Keyboard! Battery was dead as a door nail and I replaced it. It is now working and registered back to my account and I see it in my devices on the Amazon website. However, it has only about 84 of the hundreds of books I have bought over the years.

KK- It’s Slow

Weird to say the offseason is upon us in mid-October, but it has been a very weird year since the middle of March. For those new to KK, I am around but do not post just to post.  Only newsworthy information which I feel is of interest to the majority of followers is posted.  So when you see a post, rest assured it is probably worth checking out. On another note, the KK Donation Drive is winding down and $400 would get me to my goal for this period.  I am concerned about the downtime and ho...

I prefer payment via PayPal (note new PayPal link now affiliated with KK) and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.  Another payment method I'm using is Zelle, which is a way to send a donation through ...

KK- Keeping My Head Above Water

That's been my motto since mid-March and many of you may be of the same mindset. The last KK Donation Drive was in late November and as the headline states, I have been able to keep my head above water.  When COVID-19 hit in mid-March, well let's just say everything changed. Add revenue dropped 70-90% during a given month, it is now at 50%.  For the first time in my life I was forced to file for unemployment (self employed) and am still receiving some of those benefits but it is no...
