this stark black and white ad was placed on the arts page of todays ‘new york times’, the small text below reads as follows:
‘dutch governement decimating support for the arts. severe damage will be done. dutch arts can no longer hold their unique position on the world’s stage.
disgruntled dutch artists +31 613 517 169’
calling the number lead me to a voicemail message with an email address for the group ‘dutch artists’ and urging me to get in touch… the revolution will be televised…
