[-empyre-] We Will Continue the Good Fight
Thank you Jeff Gates, thank you Trace Reddell, thank you Abe Golam,
and thank you to all on the Empyre List for a stimulating and
compassionate dialogue on politics and the power of art and the
artist. We have lost the election but we will not lose the battle...
To all of you committed to the Good Fight, the war against war wages
on. As I said in my recent speech at White Box in New York City: "art
must not be petrified in the art world; its true spirit must take
flight in the sudden arrival of freedom and the endless possibilities
it seems to offer."
Four more years of George W. Bush means four more years of the US
Department of Art & Technology. Yes, I am one of the cabinet members
who will continue with the administration, and here at the
Department, we have ambitious plans to bring about real
transformation in the social and political sphere.
Yes, I vow to push an aggressive social agenda in my second term,
beginning with new 21st century tactics to awaken the disenfranchised
and activate the aesthetic hyperculture.
We can make a difference: I came here to Washington to get some
things done, and we're doing it.
