I can has Cheezburger, Porn and Street Art-Calendar 2012

Alain von Rebel:Art hat zusammen mit ein paar Streetartists einen Kalender gemacht, den sich die Leute, die Graffiti „so schön bunt“ und Banksy aus den falschen Gründen gut finden, sicher nicht in die Bude hängen würden. Naja, vielleicht doch, NSFW ist er eigentlich nur, weil auf einem erregierten Penis „I belong to various“ geschrieben steht. Und große, farbbeschmierte, künstliche Brüste. Und Streetart. Und sowas. Erscheint im Oktober.

Let me explain: MILF, bukkake, cumstache, deepthroat, teabagging or Dirty Sanchez – pornography created the Internet. Today 12 percent of all websites contain porn, 25 percent of all search-engine requests made every day are about porn, that´s around 68 million a day, and 35 percent of all Internet downloads are porn. After porn mankind created lolcats. The net is the best thing that ever happened to cats. Who would have ever imagined that the Internet, once invented for military purposes and expanded for communication among scientists, will become a global spank bank and a worldwide cat picture distribution system?

But where is the connection to street art? Street art is characterized by a simplified and grass-roots democratic approach that allows anyone to produce and present art – simply and inexpensively. Using the Internet, today´s artist can also gain wide recognition rapidly without the aid of gallery owners, PR agents, or curators. Just as music groups can disseminate and sell their songs through social networks and video platforms, works of street artists get viral on the net and artists are able to make their first breakthrough. Lolcats (LOL for „laughing out loud“) became a global mem, a big running gag for geeks and nerds. And like nerds are making their jokes in virtual space, street artists are hacking the public space for their in-jokes.
