You are what you art
Carl Scrase’s latest attempt to hijack anything worth while remaining from the Occupy Melbourne community resulted in claiming the free shop was art and invited the free shop to be part of an exhibition in the very same gallery he was once again shamelessly promoting himself with his direct democracy scam.
Of course other artists are getting wise to him and we saw this critique of his work on display. Inspired by this critique, I place on my art wank beret and stroke my beard in a sagely fashion.
I think the artist is trying to say he is white, plastic, hollow and overinflated beyond realistic proportions, and full of hot air; while wasting resources and trying to get attention.
Other artists seem to be onto Scrace’s scam, I swear this woman is trolling him. Not the artists actual work just a rough remix I did of her display card and some blank easels from another exhibit.
Of course Carl has been busy trying to muster any interest in himself. About this time last year he was pasting question pages on tagged up walls and seeing how people responded. I must admit the idea is quite interesting, a completely anonymous forum, something like the original graffito of the roman public toilets. the real issue I had was the types of questions asked.
The earlier series was about empathy:
Why is Scrace so interested in empathy? Is it that he does not have any himself and finds the concept mysterious?
The later series was very worrisome.
Fortunately this example was answered quite succinctly.
I concur with this response largely.
We have a constitution in Australia and it is quite a good one. Sadly most of the population is unaware of what is written inside it or what it actually means. I’ll pick the brains of the constitution buffs later, but the constitution we have states clearly taxes are only to be imposed on imports and exports from the country and nothing else, not wages or tobacco or alcohol. Further more the ATO is not mentioned anywhere (not gazetted) and therefore not legal. I’ll go into all of this later on.
Iceland crowd sourced a new constitution AFTER it jailed the bankers and formed a new government. A new constitution before that would be a disaster.
Here is an example of an artist who got into politics and changed the constitution of the country he won power over.
Less than a month after Adolf Hitler’s appointment as chancellor in 1933, the Reichstag Fire Decree invoked Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution, suspending several constitutional protections on civil rights. The articles affected were 114 (habeas corpus), 115 (inviolability of residence), 117 (correspondence privacy), 118 (freedom of expression /censorship), 123 (assembly), 124 (associations), and 153 (expropriation).
The subsequent Enabling Act, passed by the Reichstag on March 23, 1933, stated that, in addition to the traditional method of the Reichstag passing legislation, the Reich government could also pass legislation. It further stated that the powers of the Reichstag, Reichsrat and Reich President were not affected. The normal legislative procedures outlined in Articles 68 to 77 of the constitution did not apply to legislation promulgated by the Reich government.
From mediocre artist to brutal fascist, be warned.

Actually, Natsha Guilino (not Carl Scrase) invited the Free Shop for a student exhibition which was in a neighbouring building to the Direct Democracy exhibition which Carl’s “hand”was a part of. The fact that he was exhibiting there was just strange …ehm…synchronicity. Also Teigan mistakenly presumed originally that Free Shop was part of Direct Democracy exhibition, which is where that rumour came from. Then, of course, Carl turned up to the Free Shop display. but did not manage to hi-jack it so far.
too much of a coincidence to be random. The exact campus on the exact day, the short notice, it screams hijack all over.
Reblogged this on Bohemian Glade and commented:
Correction: In this article it is stated that Carl Scraseinvited the Free Shop, but this is not the case. The Free Shop was part of an adjacent exhibition by students and we were invited by Natasha, any connection to Direct Democracy exhibition was purely coincidental. Or maybe it was synchronicity?
Looking at it from a different and slightly more philosophical angle, nothing is ever truly coincidence and wherever two or more people make a descision or plan an action, it can be called conspiracy. Was Carl Scrase involved? Most likely. But in this case I hope that it may have been the Free Shop which did more of the hi-jacking than Scrase’s handshaped bouncy castle.
