Artist Neo Rauch’s anti-establishment platform now has a pretty clear anti-social networking slant. Neo Rauch’s Facebook fan-page host, Denise Klink, sent fans (me) a message regarding the fan-page shuttering (see photo below)–apparently, this was an order via N.R.’s agent, which came, via N.R. himself.
Of course, being from East Germany and all, Neo Rauch is definitely “wearin’ Chucks not Bally’s”, so to speak. (Anyone else having mental images of N.R. throwing up a gang sign?). But Facebook is a pretty egalitarian concept to me. I mean, it’s a web-based commune. One would think that he’d partake! Oh well. My admiration will just have to exist as a mental experience.
