University of Kansas Flies Blackened American Flag....

After reading the article...this could have gone into a number of other threads, but since it has a local angle...i think it needs its own....



University of Kansas flies blackened American flag to represent American polarization

The University of Kansas is flying an American flag with a splattering of black paint and a black and white striped sock as part of an art exhibit on the current political climate.

German artist Josephine Meckseper designed the flag which is being flown at a dozen locations in the United States, including KU, Cornell University, Texas State University, Rutgers University, and the University of South Florida, Campus Reform reported.

Sponsored by the Creative Time Project, Meckeper said of their website, “The flag is a collage of an American flag and one of my dripped paintings which resembles the contours of the United States,” Meckseper explained on the Creative Time website. “I divided the shape of the country in two for the flag design to reflect a deeply polarized country in which a president has openly bragged about harassing women and is withdrawing from the Kyoto protocol and UN Human Rights Council.”

“The black and white sock on my flag takes on a new symbolic meaning in light of the recent imprisonment of immigrant children at the border,” Meckseper added. “Let’s not forget that we all came from somewhere and are only recent occupants of this country – native cultures knew to take care of this continent much better for thousands of years before us. It’s about time for our differences to unite us rather than divide us.”

Meckseper's flag is part of a larger project that's been going on since June 2017 titled "Pledges of Allegiance," which features 16 different artists designing their own flags on issues they care about.

“We realized we needed a space to resist that was defined not in opposition to a symbol, but in support of one, and so we created a permanent space. The flag seemed an ideal form to build that space around both practically and symbolically,” Creative Time Artistic Director Nato Thompson said on the project website.

Doesn't look like that's happening here. That's something you only see from the nazi liberals. Pretty sure here you'll just see a drop in admissions and a lack of interest in KU basketball.
Indeed. I "protest" with my money. His (my Grandson) tuition is paid my his Grandmother and me. Still waiting for that return call from the Admin.

Guess they are answering a LOT of calls right about now.

Good luck with that. This isn't Mizzou we're talking about here. We actually have a basketball program. Unlike Mizzou who currently has no sports program worth discussing.

OUCH!


Of course, I played football for the University of Louisville when, in reality, they didn't actually have a football program - just a bunch of guys getting the shit kicked out of them every Saturday…..

I rented a piece of machinery to another farmer recently and this cats nephew came to get it. I chatted the kid up and he told me he was a mechanical engineering student at KSU. He told me he had a professor that was a full on cross dresser. Wig makeup fake tits whole bit. Looked like a mid 40s woman and the first day of class said “my name is Brian”.

I had this dumbfounded look on my face for awhile. I finally had to ask “This is at KState? In the ag engineering department?” Sure enough. All I can say is I’m getting old.

You don't get to complain about snowflakes and their safe spaces on college campuses when one of those snowflakes creates a work of art you find offensive.

No, people aren't damaging shit in the street, but many of them ARE behaving like triggered liberals on the internet.

In any case, good like finding your safe space hidey-hole so the mean kid with the ****ed up flag art can't hurt you in Lawrence ****ing Kansas

Liberals were morons for wanting confederate statutes removed. That's fair. I think the statues should stay (most of them, anyway).

But nobody who wants this removed is a moron! In fact, they're on the right side of the issue! Over a ****ing work of art by some nobody college kid

Seems like the main person whining here is you. Time to change your pad, perhaps.

I can find a ton of examples of whining in this thread.

None of them came from me.

I probably give less of a **** than most about this, but there is a code of ettiquette for the United States Flag. When you do your art project on it thats pushing it. When you run it up the pole and fly it at a university, you kinda crossed a line.

Again, I probably give less of a shit about it than most, but I do understand there is a difference between being offended about some piece of art and being offended at blatant disrespect for the ettiquette, rules and guidelines regarding the flag of a nation.

You're wrong on both counts. They should remove the confederate statues put up by the Daughters of the Confederacy. That was a bullshit group of hoity toity women that pushed these over the top confederate-pride statues into northern states. **** that.

And it's not a random piece of art. It's a commisioned piece done by a German artist that's being flown by no-nations-no-borders anarchists all over the place.

How does this affect you? Not you, but the royal "you" (read: triggered snowflakes). Does this hurt you in the disrespect bone? Does it hurt the feelers, this piece of subjective art?

It doesn't affect me. Thus one reason why I don't give much of a shit. But I was a Boy Scout when I was a kid and learned enough to know that a state university should be smart enough not to run somebody's art project up the flag pole.

Its just another illustration of “progressive” hypocrisy. You all just keep showing your true colors almost daily by the things you choose to support and oppose.
