Imagine that! (Or do I mean «Imagine Peace?»)

(Times Square, Manhattan)

Yoko! You’ve done it again! I never thought you would imagine…

But you did, or did you? I think the name comes from that song that your deceased husband released back in 1971, I think the name was «Imagine», no?

Well, this is nothing more than another one of your «zen» musings, or your «radical thoughts», right Yoko Ono?


It’s another stupid installation by the conceptual artist Yoko Ono, (who really thought hard on a title for this one!), you know the one that brought is the Wish Tree, the Bed-In and the Lighting piece (where she instructs us to light a match and stare at it until it goes out), and the Instruction Pieces where she asks us to smoke everything, even our pubic hair or to go out and step on every puddle in the city (although it may not be the rainy season)…

Yoko, I know you’ve a lot of money, after all you did inherit a pretty penny, and you can afford to indulge yourself in these fits of fancy, thinking you are bringing peace to the world, or love, or unity, or, well, frankly, stupidity is what I think, but can’t you just settle down into your old age and leave us alone?

Well folks, you never know. These signs, your «Imagine Peace» installations, are probably coming to every city in the world, even to your insignificant little village. And I am sure that coming generations will look back upon 2022 and say, «my word, she did bring about world peace!»

  2. Otra pancarta como esa, también de Yoko, cuelga de la fachada del edificio del Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, en León. Pero tomátelo con calma.

    While I like the idea for the world to unite, it takes a little bit more than just broadcasting a few words on digital screens

    There are so many «artists» out there – writers, painters, sculptors, musicians, even actors who fancy they are in fact artists, when they are less than garbage collectors. Garbage collectors at least work to clean things up or hide man’s effluvium from sight. These self-proclaimed artists make garbage then foist it off on idiots wanting desperately to appear «sophisticated» and worldly. Let me add another sham artistry to the list. Those who would be social engineers and feel their fame or fortune qualifies them to be so, when their cockeyed view of beauty or creativity is reflected in their every thought process. Go ahead, ask me why it is so very easy to be a misanthrope, why I have such a dim view of my fellow man.
