Little Sparta: Finlay, April 1988
An original vintage xerox 30 x 21cm, 1pp statement from Finlay in which he notes the allegations against him in Art Press, on the French radio station Europe 1, in the April edition of Galeries magazine edited by Yves Hyatt where they refer to his "pervasive allusions to Nazi horrors".
Finlay, in turn, accuses his accusers of "a crude attempt to use - that is, to abuse - emotions associated with race in order to destroy me, my work, my family , and my livelihood. it is sad that those who complain of past tyrannies, and who talk of "human rights" commit these excesses. Certainly what is thrust upon us is a war and from now on we shall defend ourselves in every way we can."
