ABOUT DIETMAR KIRVES

By BORIS LURIE

Published in: NO!art Show No 3, catalog, New York, 1998

Teutonic Knight on stalwart horse: hail, here comes Dietmar! Attack injustices, head on—collect, arrange, catalogize, injustices collected—push on, to the self-appointed German Ostland, glorious task! Weed out the Infidel!—though even they be nearly—fidel; shout out and demonstrate! protect your skull from the batons— conceptualize life's War, with the Berliners' sharply poisoned tongue. Clean up the streets, of what has been the Third and one-half Reich, and try to keep them well-brushed clean, in what is now the Global Freedom's Fourth—dressed up in Welfare cleaning-man's Red Garb. Catalogue, photographize, and write the biting lines, computerize and archivize—the Times, you Don Quixote red-wine brimming Knight!
