Best. Protest. Ever. If you read the story last week about an artist in Bayreuth, Germany who's been sticking little American flags into piles of dog crap, here [via jwz via bb] is what looks like that artist's official site.

Best. Protest. Ever.

Dooty humor (NTM deliberate trolling) is now the peak of protest?

"We have sent out extra patrols to try to catch whoever is doing this in the act,"

Then what? Extra patrols? I didn't realize violent crime and theft were at such low levels in Bayreuth.

I thought socially conscious artists were supposed to pick up after their dogs like everyone else.

The original artiste is in Germany, planting little U.S. flags in dogshit; this website is based in SF and is instead offering tiny GWB flags. Admirable efforts all around, but maybe not the same folks.

This brings me back to the mid-'90s in the Lower East Side, where for months somebody kept covering dog droppings with brightly multicolored cupcake sprinklies.

Funny as hell. What's funnier, though, is that the cops are going to waste their time trying to stop it.

The news story says "American flags," odinsdream, so I assumed the Bush flags are simply the latest version. You may be right, though; these may be the only ones. And come on, jonmc, stop being so fucking serious. It's a freaking beautiful Dada meme that's both funny *and* easy to morph and spread. It's a *perfect* attention-getting protest - better than smashing in Starbucks windows, that's for sure.

Legal experts said there was no law against using faeces as a flag stand and the federal constitution was vague on the issue.

I love it. I looked for this site for hours after I read that story, but couldn't find anything. Turns out jwz had linked it back in October.

Serious has nothing to do with it. I just prefer my humor funny.

And taking a symbol that means a lot to people and placing it in what many would see as a degrading setting is going to alienate and infuriate more people than it's going to galvanize, thus making it a rather ineffective protest.

Oh, and as for the "deliberate trolling" accusation, I'd like to state for the record that it's the creativity of the method, not the kneejerk anti-Bushism, that makes this a great protest. Apologies for the unfortunately unclear wording. I'm honestly impressed by the simplicity of this funny, funny stunt. Bravo.

OK, if it's pictures of Bush that's marginally better (but still dumb). The original post said "American flags." I'm not a flag-worshiper by any means but I think desecration/degrading of it causes more problems than it solves.

Ah, thanks for clarifying, Lisa; I missed that on preview. Then I guess the Bayreuth flags remain undocumented, at least anywhere I can find them.

I'm fairly sure the job of the artist is not to make arguments. You have the opportunity to express yourself in any way you choose by way of rebuttal. And as to contributing nothing, if the work/prank creates a collusion of symbols in a public space that makes my puerile inner self smile, that's something.

Many of us have stated why we think that's a false assertion. Judging it as art is a different matter. Protest on some level seeks to persuade or awaken. Art dosen't neccessarily to either, although it sometimes does.
posted by jonmc at 1:42 PM on January 24, 2005


There is plenty of room for rebuttal. Take out the flag and use it as a toothpick, or put it behind your ear, or wave it proudly, or pick up the poo (mother and I always used that word) and fling at a passerby. You could hold poo and flag aloft and scream, "try burning this one assholes!!!" or, "these colors don't run, they just smell like poo!!" or, "don't tread on me!!!

You are limited only by your imagination.

Anyway, I emailed the SF site asking if the artist had links to the flag-poopers in Germany; he replied he just heard about them now. Independent invention, looks like. One more and we have a movement.
posted by mediareport at 1:53 PM on January 24, 2005


But really, seeing as most American flags are actually made in China, isn't this as much protest of Beijing's unfair labor practices and their currency's connection to the dollar? I think we can all agree that that is a cause worthy of protest.

Riiight. And the guy spray-painting "bush lies" on the sidewalk is Jean-michele fucking basquiat.

So how much do you know about Tristan Tzara, anyway?

The beginnings of Dada were not the beginnings of art, but of disgust...It was this disturbing effect which most interested the young Tristan Tzara. After Ball left Dada in 1917, Tzara became the movement's unquestioned spokesman. "There is a great negative work of destruction to be accomplished. We must sweep and clean."

Tzara's Dada was against everything: art, movements, theories, creation, order... even Dada itself. The word itself meant nothing, and at the same time, everything.


Tzara's final Zurich performance on April 9, 1919 is particularly instructive:

...Some poems by Huelsenbeck and Kandisky, recited by Kathe Wulff, were greeted with laughter and catcalls by a few members of the audience. Then all hell broke loose. A "PoŽme simultanŽ" by Tristan Tzara, performed by twenty people who did not always keep in time with each other. This was what the audience and especially its younger members, had been waiting for . Shouts, whistles, chanting in unison, laughter... all of which mingled more or less anti-harmoniously with the bellowing of the twenty on the platform...

In the second half, Richter gave an address called "Against, Without, For Dada", in which he cursed the audience. Music, or "anti-tunes" by Hans Heusser followed, more dances from Perrottet and a piece by Arp called "Cloud Pump." The audience greeted this with cries of "Rubbish." Walter Serner came to the stage next...and began to read from his anarchistic credo, "Final Dissolution", with his back to the audience.

The tension in the hall became unbearable. At first it was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. Then the catcalls began, scornful at first, then furious. "Rat, bastard, you've got nerve!" until the noise almost drowned Serner's voice, which could be heard, during a momentary lull, saying the words "Napoleon was a big, strong oaf, after all."

That really did it...the young men, most of whom were in the gallery, leaped onto the stage, brandishing pieces of balustrade...chasing Serner into the wings and out of the building, smashing the tailor's dummy and the chair, and stamped on the bouquet. The whole place was in an uproar.

Tzara was delighted. The "cretinization of the public" had been achieved.


The point, Swamp, is that attacking a dada piece of art as "philosophically rude" is so hilariously off-base it's almost brilliant. Being "philosophically rude" is the *point* of dada art.

??? Yeah. I was in no way referring to the "philosphically rude" comment, which is ridiculous (and I believe was intended to be). I just think it's, well, a BIT of a stretch to place the guy sticking little US flags in piles of dogshit in such lofty company. Likewise, basing your argument on the presupposition that said pile of flagged dogshit is "a dada piece of art."

I'm certainly not going to argue the nature of dada or art in general into the dust, nor am I going to make assumptions about what dead artists would or would not approve of, but c'mon, man. Actually what would be REALLY dada is if you could figure out how to get your dog to just shit out american flags, and then howl "La Marseillaise."

(and while I appreciate your "Google: tristan tzara+ dada theatre, cut n' paste" efforts, I've done my homework already, ok?)

Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature US flags into piles of dog poo in public parks.


extra patrols? Hahahaha.
If I've read the thread correctly, that was the German Police not the American.

Did I read the thread right? The posts', including the linked ones, wording has some confusion as it says US flag but shows a picture of a Bush flag.
Two artist sticking flags in dog shite. The one located in Germany is using the flag of The United States of America which can be read in the linked article and has no poo art pictured. The one located in San Francisco is using Bush flags which can be viewed on the web.
Was the artist in San Francisco mentioned in any news publications?

Maybe the artist using the picture of Bush on a Flag is educating the dogs by picture. A hint at a better place to poop than on the side walk, a bush.

Most cost effective way to protest is to stick a few flags into dog shit, take photos, then distribute on the internet. I'd say this was amazing, but no one I know reads these threads on a regular basis. Guess that's the red state in my less than connected society.

Swampjazz!, if you think the "philosophically rude" comment was ridiculous, there's nothing for us to argue about. The reason I brought up Tzara was to counter the ridiculous idea that artists shouldn't be philosophically rude. Anyway, if you want to continue to refuse to see poo-pile flagstands as a piece of dada protest, go right ahead. But your example of "what would be REALLY dada" is just silly.

thomcatspike, the post at boingboing incorrectly linked the two sites, and in my excitement at finally seeing pictures of this sort of thing, I passed along their mistake. The SF guy emailed me this afternoon; he has nothing to do with the (apparently longer-running) German flag-poo-pilers and to my knowledge has yet to be featured in any news articles. I have also yet to find any pictures of the German version.

There is no destruction of property so I am guessing only a littering charge might apply. But while it is easy, cheap, and probably not illegal, it is eye-catching. Enough people doing this, enough media exposure and Bush's name will forever be linked to dog shit. I, for one, am ready to run out and buy some Bush flags!

Damn if I can find a quick Google reference to it, but this is an idea that steals from advertising, rather than the (more common) other way around.

I can't remember exactly who it was for, I want to say it was a cheap hotel maybe, and it was in Amsterdam, mid 90s, and the campaign was a series of branded flags anchored in dogshit. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Maybe it was Bartle Bogle Hegarty, early?

Oh, and speaking of Anti-American protest, I also wouldn't mind it if, in 2005, we stopped equating Germans with Nazis or calling them Krauts, unless we're using the full rainbow of ethnic or racist stereotypes and epithets. We're at war with Eastasia now, not Eurasia. Get with it.
posted by cloudscratcher at 5:11 PM on January 24, 2005


As a form of protest, it's clever, but I think its message is dangerous in that it confuses 'America' with 'Bush'. I understand the flag is a symbol of the administration as the representative government of the USA, but it also represents a lot more (as jonmc said), and as much as I feel animosity towards certain aspects of USA foreign and domestic policy, there's a lot of good people and good history covered by that flag being dipped in shit there.

cloudscratcher: don't we use 'Frogs' and 'Poms' fairly frequently around here? Ethnic stereotypes flourish. Not saying it's right, but it does seem to pass under the radar regularly.

Uh, no. It's Green, but not clean. I come from a mid-sized city in the U.S., and I am constantly amazed at the amount of spit and dog poop there is on the sidewalks and streets here in Germany. It's also not uncommon to see guys pulled off in one of the rest areas here on the Autobahn just taking a piss on the side of the road in front of God and everyone.

Maria Laach has a lake that my friends and I call Poop Lake because the huge amount of dog poop that lines the side of the path down to the water makes the place smell very ... rural. It seems that everyone within 100km walks their dogs there, and since it is in a "natural" setting they feel no need to clean up a something as obviously natural as dog poop.

As for the flag thing, it has gotten way more attention than it deserves. It is only mildly funny/offensive (choose one according to your politics), hardly the kind of thing you would think would make a media source called the "World News." I mean, come on, have people lost all sense of perspective?
