From salon to Biennale

Contemporary art, while ever-evolving, has developed into its current, glorious post-war, post-modern (post everything) reductive state through a progressive lens.

I've noticed several 'happenings' in Cape Town, particularly on the way home. Signs outside the felling of Cecilia Forest reading 'Axes,' and a rather enigmatic 'Tickets to Heaven' marker on the freeway.

1) Fiercely Socialist students from the University
2) Fanatical environmentalists
3) Ironic atheists
4) Banksy-wannabes from Infecting the City

It seems urban philosophy has taken the streets, occupying public space and creating an enigmatic 'other' reality for the average city-dweller.
