Liz Magic Laser Doesn’t Care for Interviews

palin beck Liz Magic Laser Doesnt Care for InterviewsThe artist Liz Magic Laser has a new piece in Art in America that takes the concept of the journalistic interview to task for being, in her mind, phony.

To let her get right to it:

Today, the interview positions the artist—who experienced similar transformations in the 20th century—as the reality behind the work. The interview is the document of a highly cultivated presentation of self that ultimately assumes the form of a written script.

An early interview between Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin was instrumental in her forming this opinion.
