Warning: graphic content.
I told myself I wouldn’t post about this again, not yet anyway. But I finally saw the dog video the @Guggenheim is presenting as “art” in its upcoming exhibition. My heart is shattered. I have posted the link in my story for those of you who want to be witnesses for these dogs, and a few stills in the slides above (if it's not working, link is http://bit.ly/2y0Ca0y). .
These poor 8 souls. And through the darkness, the horror of this video, one thing hurts even deeper: these dogs aren’t even trying to fight. There is just sheer fear and pain. Eight dogs stunned, not understanding what they are supposed to do, as the floor just slips from under their paws, forcing them to run faster and faster toward each other. Passed the first shock, they go eerily quiet. Then a few barks, more like calls for help and again the same question: “why?”. A couple of dog handlers trying to encourage the dogs from the sidelines. A crowd of press and art critics there to witness “great art” being made. I knew this was going to be bad, and I felt horrified that yet again pit bulls were going to be shown in such a negative light. What pains me more is that, yet again, pit bulls showed they do not want to be fighters. They do not want to be monsters. They do as they are told, they do as they are forced to, and all the while asking us: “Why?”. I am more determined now to get this video shut down as well as all the animal cruelty pieces Guggenheim is trying to feed us as “art”. I am editing myself right now, trust me… There are many things I want to be typing. But seeing these poor souls betrayed, abused while the art world applauds, fueled a stronger fire in my soul. Guggenheim, you are reminding me why we fight.
