I arrive in Basel, it was all the smoke and flames I had read about.
I was asked by my friends at Trendbeheer to do a report about Basel. So, Im going to start off this report with a quick joke- I hope you will get it and you will understand why I tell it.
A young man has been out in the country side and has not had the companionship of a woman for months. During dinner the shy young man, asks his fellow sheep herders how they are able to survive for so long with out the company of woman?
“Well,” the older of the men says, ” we find ourselves a sheep to our liking, and we fornicate with it, and thats how we survive”. The shy boy shakes his head and says “no way, I would never do that !”
Several months pass, and the boy cant help himself. He looks around to make sure he is alone, and then he proceeds to have sex with the sheep. Several minutes pass when the shy boy hears laughter from behind. He turns around and notices all of his work mates laughing. “But I though you said it was ok!” the boy screams in embarrassment. “Yes” said the older man, ” but not with an ugly one!”
There were a lot of sheep and I am not going to report on the pretty ones or the ones I liked- beautify is in the eye of the beholder- Ones man’s hot sheep is not anothers- (Woman, please understand that I use men with hopes that you understand that the joke can be switched into female form.)
Even a worm turns into a butterfly.
Just because I know how to use instagram mean I know how to take a good picture.
I venture into the village called Basel. Every night people go to the Kunst hall to get WASTED! I must say this is where it.
Although it looks like the Jeff Koons banner is hung like shit, it is.
I guess even the swiss like to have fun.
I go to the art fair, and I see something which are familiar.
It was nice to see that even in these times of government cuts, there was still a living Dutch artist being represented.
The one and only.
I see dead people.
Another dead one.
Like Picasso, somethings just never fall out of fashion.
Where is my Limosine.
I guess I take the bus.
Where is my bus.
I dont know who this was, but it was in a green house like installation and is so funny.
How does it feel_ You like me take pictcha of you_ I guess so.
