you are absolutely right in pointing to the fact that it was indeed
Thomas Edlinger, Raimar Stange and Florian Waldvogel who were
involved in, and who are responsible for the (in)famous Lentos
publication (as I am mentioning in my open letter which is online).
Btw, Stella Rollig as a director of the Lentos Museum is responsible
I am "singling out" Waldvogel because 1) he is the only of the three
curators who's possibly known outside of a (or even in the) German

the three that keeps re-appearing on mailing lists like Nettime and
Spectre. Furthermore, I am "singling out" Waldvogel because 3)
indeed, he is one of the three curators of the upcoming Manifesta in
Cyprus (and, through that, has quite an international exposure). And
4), I am "singling out" poor old Florian Waldvogel because it is much
And seriously, I am interested in finding out whether he was selected

(this incident being only one in a series) or whether he became a
Manifesta curator BECAUSE of that.
Does the international art world crave for fake leftists surfing on
'protest' aesthetics? It seems so.
