    According to the statement of the official member of the provincial government Kurt Flecker face to face to the Forum Stadtpark asking for subvention,
    ‘I ONLY PATRONIZE “GEIL” ART/CULTURE’,
    we have to deconstruct the term “GEIL”.
    As we know, Herr Flecker likes to create ‘free communal video watching’ in the backyards of the Landhaus including films of rock events of the Rolling Stones,Marilyn Manson, Queen, and so on.
    We also know, that we will have a MusicalFestival invented by the culturpoliceman Mr. Miedl (he used to perform the job of a policeman before he became an official member of the councils culture troops), showing postmodern musicals like DRACULA e.g. So how can we deal with the term GEIL?
    Could it mean cool, horny, lustful, randy, phat, salacious, voluptious? Or prurient, wicked, maybe ruttish?
    Maybe this is the problem of art dealing within postmodern terms- it’s so arbitrarily!
    But what is much more urgent seems to be the question about PERFORMING CULTURE IN PUBLIC SPACES:
    We recognize the first indications of election campaigning using verbs like ‘DIRT, CLEANING THE STREETS and SWEEPING OFF’, which is promoted by people of the BZÖ and FPÖ, but there is also the claim from about 100 people for an autonomous cultural center in Graz, we have to question: who has the resources for the best CULTURAL PERFORMANCE ? And: Can anyone be GEIL or HORNY if he/she has no resources?
