FRIDAY'S DAILYGUT: THE DEATH OF YALE

So by now you've heard about the Yale student, Aliza Shvarts, who claimed she artificially inseminated herself and then induced miscarriages as part of her senior art project. After getting a pile of attention, it's now been announced that this is a "creative fiction," otherwise known as a ghoulish hoax.


So what's the excuse for this attention-seeking behavior? The associate dean and vice president for public affairs Helaine S. Klasky said it was to draw attention to "the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a womans body."

Meaning - no clue. And this is the crux behind performance art - it's never supposed to do anything but raise awareness of, well, raising awareness. Performance art exists only to perpetuate the myth that performance artists have something to say - when instead they're untalented goons in desperate need of a solid kick in the ass.


But here's the thing - at first, Aliza says these miscarriages are real. And now were being told they aren't. So who's telling the truth here? Could this denial be performance art as well? Could the truth, now explained as a lie, be a method to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding womens struggle against patriarchy?

See how easy it is to make this crap up! I could be an associate dean at Yale!! Pack up your things Helaine!


But speaking of ambiguity, there should be none among parents thinking of sending their kids to Yale. All you have to do is look at the "before" picture of the artist, Aliza, in high school - and now afterwards, as an angry, ugly, mentally ill, blowhard. Your performance art should consist of you running as fast as you can to another campus.


Anyway, this art project is on display next week. I wonder if throwing up on it constitutes as performance art? Who wants to be first to find out?
