(via Radical Italian Museum Director Begins Burning Art in Incendiary Anti-Austerity Protest | Artinfo)

Wut?
This is actually happening ” he torched a painting by French artist Séverine Bourguignon, who watched the ceremony via Skype. Manfredi has said that he intends to burn three paintings a week from now on as part of an ongoing protest.”. Will all artists be watching/ in agreement? Will the ashes be saved like a modern day/ crisis age ‘erased do koonig drawing’? Will it actually matter? I’m afraid those who the protests are targeting do not care that this art is being burnt.

He’s protesting underfunding of the arts in Italy by burning art.

Until 1924, you could buy Heroin in stores. There was heroin cough syrup, heroin lozenges and heroin tablets.
The most amazing thing was that “Heroin” was a trademark of Bayer. Discovered by a British chemist in 1874, heroin was mass produced by German pharmaceutical company Bayer 14 years later. The name “Heroin” was inspired by the “heroic” fearlessness sensation users felt after using it. Pharmacists marketed heroin as an excellent pain killer, and a cure for many respiratory ailments.
