|ARTISTIC DEMONSTRATION IN BERLIN & DAMTP COMMENT TO COMRADES|
|Written by Hunger Artists|
Call to participate in the Hunger March!
Hallesches Tor – Gateway to Berlin
14.05.2011, 2 pm
On Saturday May 14, 2011 at 2 pm, we are holding an artists’ demonstration on the bridge at Hallesches Tor.
Artists demonstrate with artistic means:
For a fair distribution of the world’s resources,
Against the unfair distribution of public funds for culture,
For more funding for new directions in art such as Performance Art,
For the freedom of art around the world,
Against the commercialization and destruction of open spaces for art,
For solidarity with all artists who are persecuted and imprisoned,
For freedom of expression,
Against politically motivated murder and persecution,
Against nuclear contamination of the environment,
For the victims of the inhumane European foreign policy against the refugees of the world,
Against the senseless use of weapons in order to realize economic interests.
Stop the War!

Hunger is naturally an incredibly exponentiated subject, indeed in the political sense, (there is no non-political art!) but hunger is also essential in a universal context relating to art. Only people who have hunger can create change. Only what is uncomfortable is interesting. Hunger artists are often laughed at, yet they are often the ones who have understood what it is all about:
The greatest artwork that we can create is, ultimately, our own individual life.
Ultimately, all art and all dance help to satisfy our hunger for peace in the world.
we would say that your demands would sound much better if to delete the words "culture", "art", "performance art", also the word "inhuman" to change into "fascist" and to include also solidarity with all working people and to invite for a general strike... otherwise it sounds very bourgeois demand for more privileges...seems the text is obsolete not from yesterday (the day we got your invitation was one day after your march..), but already since the moment it was written down...
But we really admire the last one demand [that one on the use of the weapons] - also would recommend to add: we are for releasing all the armies (and other armed structures like police) and demand to give all the guns to the people who create the meaning (i.e. psychic workers) so to realize class interest –
WE’LL USE THE WEAPONS WITH SENSE!
