Below is a re-airing of a 2011 post…just because. Before starting the re-run, though, I looked around to discover whether Ms Kruger has had anything to say about the current election season. I found this, by Bob Duggan, relating to the 2012 election season at Big Think: How Barbara Kruger Asks the Questions This Election Must Answer. The exhibit is still on view, I understand.

Gainful employment for me was writing mountains of press releases for the gainfully employed. I did this for four years and finally embraced the good fortune that had recently come my way, relieving me of the hours and hours of tedium my job had wrought.
The Wiz Live! was aired on NBC last week – we watched and enjoyed. Performances, costumes and scenery were excellent – a wonderfully colourful and artistic production of a new adaptation of the 1975 Broadway musical The Wiz, a soul/R&B reinterpretation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The show reminded me that years ago I’d looked at L.Frank Baum’s natal chart, read a little about
