    Welcome to 2013!

    "Marko Markovic is a Croatian artist currently residing in New York City. He is a performance artist and social activist whose work highlights the political problems of the times. Growing up against the backdrop of a revolutionary political situation in Croatia, his performances are informed by the memory of having lived through a disruptive moment in European history.

    His latest performance, Fuck the System, is a performance (in the form of live sculpture) representing the freedom of giving the audience the liberty to respond to the question of what is right and what is not acceptable anymore. With a woman personifying Liberty (a reference to Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix) with a raised fist, this international and historical symbol of resistance in the performance implicates some of the most famous of American democratic symbols.

    In this live sculpture an act of love is displayed in the form of oral sex 'as the ultimate weapon against the hatred' – a way to combat Lady Liberty."

    "Performer Nina Ber was not topless for Marko Markovic’s Fuck the System. She wasn’t, however, wearing any underwear beneath her long, sliplike red shirt when she lifted it above her waist and her vagina became the grudging receptacle for Markovic’s tongue for nearly 20 minutes. Uncomfortably standing with her fist raised high in the air,
 as if hitting a vague protest gesture, she didn’t seem to be enjoying any of the dude’s earnest attentions as he buried his face deep in her pussy. Maybe she was too busy pondering 'protest movements and powers of resistance against oppressive apparatus[es],' as Markovic’s program blurb stated. Or maybe she was just bored like the rest of us, who found little interesting about standard-fare cunnilingus."

    If he really wanted to "Fuck the System", he'd stick it in her ass.

    I went to Croatia a couple years ago. The Dalmatian coast is beautiful. Kings Landing was amazing. This national park they have inland, pliviste lakes, is like something out of the hobbit.
