"Art is total Propaganda"

Such were the words spread out like blood on the once-pristine white walls inside Robert Wilson's main building of the Watermill Center. The prolific German artist Jonathan Meese created the installation: Marlene Dietrich in Dr. No's Ludovico-Clinic (Dr. Baby's Erzland). And:

"transforming Wilson's pure design into a fantastic, ever-changing assemblage of cult, kitsch, and historical relics." [Watermill Center]

If this party is any kind of taste into the propaganda he is describing, consider me sold. It was, by far, the most interesting party I've been to this summer.
