NO!art-MANIPULATION BY THE
link BORIS LURIE ART FOUNDATION [BLAF], NEW YORK
DIRECTOR: GERTRUDE STEIN

lurie, kirves, and patterson at buchenwald memorial, weimar 1998PLOT: The Boris Lurie Art Foundation, New York, brought in on June 11, 2010 the NO!art in the commercial register as a Trademark. On February 24, 2011 an ultimatum was issued to me by the Boris Lurie Art Foundation up to March 15, 2011, the term NO!ART not to use any more and to transfer the Domain www.no-art.info to them. Should this not occur till then, they will pursue other legal remedies. — I worked together with Boris Lurie more than 30 years around the NO!art to bring the movement to the public and to involve other artists. Out of it resulted among others the first  NO!art anthology 1988 as a book, as well as other books, cataloges, exhibitions and films, which are to be seen on the NO!art websites. In 2008 Boris Lurie died. He was the last initiator of the NO!art movement. It does not correspond to the interest of Boris Lurie and all involved artists, to book the NO!art with a trademark and to limit therefore the freedom of the NO!art movement. Gertrude Steinsaid: "Until the day he died, in January 2008, he dreamed of a foundation to address these problems. We worked toward this for 50 years, and upon his death, I organized and fought for a meaningful art message that would encompass what Boris struggled to bring to fruition his entire life. This is stated in the 1961 mission statement; we have had many exhibits." And what ist with Boris' last will? With his Board and testament? Gertrude Stein changed in it in her own way. — ARTISTS: Take attention!: Be careful in your end. The dealers will sit nearby beside you and will change your testament, because for them the best artist is a dead artist. The artist can never fuck back because he or she is dead. Who is the winner?

NO!art is against the pyramiding of artworldmarket-investment-fashion-decorations:
such games-decorations are the sleeping pills of culture.
It is against "phantasy" in the service of the artmarket.
