Obrich is overrated; like Cattelan's mini me Gioni at the New Museum. Can you imagine him asking Richardson at the panel if he ever saw Picasso in the nude? What does he want to know, the size of his dick?...Very telling....and tres apropo the Dan Cameron/Oliver Kamm debacle??

surely some mistake? Obrist? N'est ce pas?

Overated? Perhaps, but very much debatable . Surely many would queue up on your side of the presumed argument, he does seem to attract such views. However he is a character of immense energy, however bolemia-like his curatorial attude can seem.
I remember Graham slaving over a crucifixion, grieving in fact. He said best to leave out all the Marys than overcrowd the base of the cross. I had no idea what he was saying but I have the feeling Herr Obrist could do with heeding to such wisdom?

Overated, overexposed and oversaturated. What is it with these baton-passing curatorial inbreds; what they end up doing is homogenezing the art world. Line the f***ers up....Okwui, Mini-me Gioni et al. Take a close look at what they do and it is really not that diversified; a flat body of work that is politcally correct and artistically and poetically destitute. Thank god that bullet head Basualdo seems to have fallen of the face of the earth. And Octavio Zaya????Puulllleeeeezzze,,,,,,,,,I have never seen such poverty of thought. We have smelled the enema, and the emema is us
