A Fine Line Between Stupid And Clever

Serial Killer At Yale

Posted by bmac on April 17, 2008

Anything for art.

Art major Aliza Shvarts ’08 wants to make a statement.

Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself “as often as possible” while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.

“I hope it inspires some sort of discourse,”

The only discourse this chick really hopes it inspires, is how brilliant she is. This “exhibit” is all about Ms. Shvarts, not about any “message” Videotaping herself having forced abortions has got to be one of the most disgusting, shameless, immoral, and outright insanely desperate attempts at getting attention I’ve ever seen.

On the plus side, her disgusting attempt at self aggrandising will more likely make people re-think abortion, but not the way she wants it to.

On a purely analytical basis, if I were her teacher, she’d get an F, for completely getting the intended “message” backwards, and more so for making the project completely about herself, even further diluting her retarded pro-choice “art.”

I wonder how much her Ivy League education cost?

“I believe strongly that art should be a medium for politics and ideologies, not just a commodity,” Shvarts said. “I think that I’m creating a project that lives up to the standard of what art is supposed to be.”

Ummm…What does that even mean? Isn’t “art” already all that? Have they taught her at Yale that art has been hijacked as purely a commodity? Since when? Politics and ideology are not addressed in art?

This is a fucking Yale graduate folks.

I stole the picture from Ace.

Update: Could be a hoax, but I don’t really care, as I don’t claim to be a reporter. I guess Hot Air thinks it may be a hoax, no link, y’all know where to find ’em. I guess the reasoning is, it’s just so fucking retarded, it can’t possibly be true, and/or she may have used menstrual blood or even more out there, she’s a Republican.


Update 2.0 (does anybody care at this point?)

Drudge is calling hoax, although, I wouldn’t exactly define it as “hoax.” The stupid freak just used fake blood and whatnot, and didn’t actually impregnate herself, or actually have miscarriages, but the intent is the same, so that doesn’t qualify as a hoax, at least not to me.

My basic point remains the same, which is, this is politics, not “art.” As an art project, this is a complete failure. If she were a Poli-Sci major, maybe. But art? No way. This is a blatantly political statement far and above any artistic merit whatsoever. Great art, even politically combative art, should have the ability to stand on it’s own outside of the message the artist is trying to convey.

Example: “Imagine” by John Lennon. A retarded, child-like, political song. But it’s got a great melody, and some very nice music, and I can enjoy that part of it, and acknowledge Lennon’s ability as a musician and artist, even if the lyrics are fucking moronic.

Yale can’t teach the difference? YALE? Ivy League baby, Ivy League.

  1. I just shvarted. What a rotten cunt.

    Well, the pic explains the artificially inseminated part.

    What a sad time for art. Lemur King found something almost equally disgusting and depraved in a San Fransicko “Art Institute”. Go ahead, click on through.

    Good grief. Calling this stuff “art” does not make it so. This is politics. Period. (no pun intended) Great art can be politically combative, but it doesn’t beat you over the head with a poopy stick.

    Gee, she might be a whiny little attention whore. Whooda thunk it?

    I recommend a rabid badger suppository.

    Don’t give her any ideas.

    Wait…give her ideas!

    Even if it is a hoax, why is it whenever somebody pushing a leftist meme (in this case, abortion) is called out for their sick acts or words (see Rev Jeremiah Wright), they respond by saying they want to use their stunt to “promote a discussion”?

  8. bmac said

    Because the discussion they really want to promote is about themselves.

    I bet mom and dad are so proud to pay for their little snowflakes’ tuition for her to create shit like this. REALLY living up to the ole family name I bet.

    To be completely honest I really never worry when I hear of garbage like this coming from an Art major. The real world always has a tendency to show that their little extremes that these idiots partake in during college have no weight whatsoever (with double negative points going to getting a degree in a non-marketable skill) when it comes to actual employment. I can’t wait until I am in line at Starbuck’s and this douche nozzle has to serve me coffee as I am in transit to a salary that she will never be able to touch.

    Maybe that’s why people like this hate capitalism so much, because of people like me that rub it in?

    Sorry guys, kinda went a little overboard with the comment. I will now slink back to my blog…

    You’re right Old Iron, and I’d further add that an Art degree from Yale isn’t worth the parchment it’s printed on in terms of future income.

    Any parent has to know this ahead of time. If they’re stupid enough to spend the small fortune it costs to get a worthless degree from an Ivy League school, then it must run in the family.
