Guggenheim Chinese Art Film Exhibit Offends


The Guggenheim Museum in New York City is facing backlash from critics and animal rights activists over an exhibit featuring a video of dogs trying to fight.
In the 7-minute video titled, “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other,” eight American pit bulls are seen trying to attack each other while on a non-motorized treadmill, but they never actually make contact, the New York Times reported.
The Guggenheim announced Thursday that the artwork will remain, despite pleas from activist groups that the video's content amounts to animal cruelty.
“We recognize that the work may be upsetting,” the Guggenheim said in a statement on its website. “The curators of the exhibition hope that viewers will consider why the artists produced it and what they may be saying about the social conditions of globalization and the complex nature of the world we share.”
The video is from a 2003 staged piece from a Beijing museum, and “contrary to some reports, no fighting occurred in the original performance,” the statement says.
“Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other” is just one of more than 150 experimental and conceptual works to be featured in an upcoming exhibit called, “Art and China After 1989,” that begins Oct. 6, the Times reported.
Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, the video's creators, are known for obscure and somewhat disturbing pieces of art. They defended "Dogs" in an interview last year.


“Where is the soft spot in all of this?” Ms. Peng said. “Were the dogs being abused? The answer should be no. These dogs are naturally pugnacious.”

Peng argued the artwork shares a similar message as the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, and the purpose of the sporting event “is the conversion of actual fighting into regulated competition.”

“In fact, human nature and animal nature are the same,” she added.

Pit Nutter Ice Cream Parlor

Crazy News of the Day

Don't get between a woman and ice cream.  She may use a hammer and a pit bull to get some Rocky-Road.
An unhinged woman used a hammer to smash up and rob an Oklahoma City fast-food joint Sunday — as her pit bull kept watch outside, according to a report.
The suspect, identified as Clara Aguirre, 26, walked into a Braum’s ice-cream parlor wearing a Batman t-shirt around 10 a.m., NBC-affiliate KFOR-TV reported.
She first took the hammer to the cash register, police said.
“She ended up smashing the screen, the credit-card holder, and then tried to run away with the cash register before she was able to break it open,” said Lt. Jeff Spruill of the Oklahoma City Police Department.
A restaurant employee tried blocking Aguirre’s path with a trash can before she “lunged at the drive-thru window to yell at the customers and ended up breaking out the window of the drive-thru with the hammer,” said Spruill.
With a fistful of cash in hand, Aguirre and her pit-bull made a run for it, jumping over fences outside.
“She was actually pushing the dog over the fence and then jumping over the fence behind the dog,” Spruill said, according to the news outlet.
As police caught up to the pair, the woman’s dog starting running with the officers mid-chase “thinking that this was a very fun game,” said Spruill.
Cops eventually arrested Aguirre on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon.

This news story jogged our memory.

Look at ME! Look at ME!

Courtney Stodden made dog walking into something a whole lot saucier as she took on New York's 55 degree weather in less than appropriate clothing.
The 22-year-old seemed to have forgotten her top as she trotted around Central Park with a borrowed pooch on Monday.

Clearance Sale! Get Your Bleeding Hearts Beauties Boobies and Bum Bums for Bullies Calendar While Supplies Last!

Here at Pit Nutter Circus, we have collected and commented on the special sexualized advocacy used to raise awareness and funds for pit bulls for quite some time now.  

With all of their efforts, the REASON for the advocacy is swept under the rug.  This is highly offensive to victims of pit bull attacks.   Imagine a calendar to help the image of serial killers using sexy tattooed cream puffs?   How about a calendar to help the image of radical Islamic Jihadists, using flower wreaths or tutus?

What follows is inspired by a recent artistic effort of Jewish artist Shahak Shapira, who created a project entitled Yolocaust.  He inserted photoshopped  horrific images of the Holocaust behind  lighthearted "selfies" taken in what should have been somber Holocaust memorials.  

Ironically, many pit bull advocates compare BSL to the Holocaust, but it's a very offensive and ridiculous comparison.  Recently, pit bull advocates Terry Holt and Karen Batchelor dared to make the comparison sharing a post on several of their facebook pages , and there were some pit bull advocates who were disgusted, as they should be.  There is an example below, no screenshots, it's just too tedious and so pervasive to warrant  documentation.    It's obvious too, they are not aware that Hitler had a pit bull.    

FB commentor: While I am appalled by the mass killing of dogs (no matter what breed) it's totally inappropriate to compare that to the atrocities committed by the Nazis. No explanation should be needed to realize that.

When advocates try to repair the image of pit bulls use pajamas, tutus, flower wreathes, kissing booths, or cheeky burlesque photo shoots, they are lightheartedly deflecting everyone from the horrific reality, and cause of the controversy over these dogs.  
If they could think on how to reduce the incidents, then they wouldn't need all of the advocacy.  It's going to be a non-ending effort, because the more these poor dogs bred for blood sport are promoted as pets, the more victims of them there will be, and more tattooed cup cakes will pose for photo shoots and pit bulls will wear "charming costumes". 


What follows should offend.  Some of the images are graphic.  Please do not continue if you are very sensitive to the reality of why pit bulls have the reputation they do.  They don't care, but they are also victims too.  This kind of fluffy, sexy, advocacy ends up harming them as well.

A Tribute to those Mean Little Ankle Biters

Every single day posted in the comments section on the latest bloody pit bull incident, you will read it:  Chihuahua's are meaner.  They need to ban those nasty little ankle biters. It's a ridiculously silly scapegoat.   So many times, the pit bull owner will say how they never have had a single problem with their Pit Bull, but their Chihuahua will tear your throat out, this after writing in CAPS IT'S ALL HOW YOU RAISE EM!    I would have collected some screenshots of the statements here, but it's actually so pervasive, there's no point in doing that.   It's unfortunately as pervasive and un-newsworthy as pit bulls mauling, especially little tiny ankle biters.  Even those stories don't make the news unless there is something extra-ordinary that happens, such as if the owner of the little yappy ankle biter that was just killed gets a knife and slits the throat of the pibble.  A story like that may be more viral than the mauling of a child, which is also at this point, almost not newsworthy. 

If I were a Chihuahua that had to put up with the constant fear of becoming a snack for pibble, or to deal with the inane stupidity of a nutter, I would be grouchy and reactive too.  Chihuahuas deserve better. They are a noble and ancient race, and they deserve to be treated like royalty for their fierce loyalty.  They are the best watch dogs.  Arrive at the doorstep of a Chihuahua, and before you ring the bell,  there will be shrill coloratura trills that would give Beverly Sills a run for her money. 

They tremble and explode, because I suspect, there's way too much dog in there for that tiny little body to contain. 










When a pit bull wants to be truly frightening, especially to pit bull owners, he will wear his Chihuahua costume.

In the mean time,  be nice to Chihuahuas but be sure to keep Bandaids and Bactine on the ready, and always wear thick socks to protect your ankles.
