BASTA. 1988.


Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1988
16.5 x 14cm, 1pp. Artist’s card with a quote from Catherine Millet “I saw a work, I saw Nazi signs carved on it, basta….”. Above which Finlay destroys her argument with a single image – a photomontage by the great anti-nazi John Heartfeld from 1934 which is made up of four bloody axes in a swastica shape.
Not all of Finlay’s polemical cards and works are effective but this card proves Millet’s lazy view, that a work of art showing fascist symbolism somehow indicates sympathy for Nazi ideology is simply wrong, and astonishing in an art critic.
Basta (enough) indeed. VG+.
