Protect me from what I want. Like wanting to be at the current Venice Biennale to watch a giant yacht create a kerfuffle.
The poster below was purchased from one of the many souvenir stands in Venice at the 1990 Biennale. Jenny Holzer was representing USA – the first lady ever.
The truism artist borrowing from the world of advertising and marketing.
If you wanted you could buy t-shirts, hats, pencils, wooden postcards and this poster.
We wanted the poster.
