I don’t care how many excuses you can come up with. I don’t care if cavemen ate meat. I don’t care if you pray for the souls of the animals you eat. I don’t care if some people who have nothing to do with you live in food deserts. I don’t care if you believe the myth of the happy farm. I don’t care if you (we) have canines. I don’t care if that’s the way you (we) have been raised. I don’t care if you (we) can’t live 100% cruelty free. I don’t care if the grandfather of the cousin of your friend loves his hens. I don’t care if you care more about humans than nonhumans. I don’t care.
If you can live without exploiting nonhuman animals, your excuses are not valid. And do you know how I know this? Because I used those excuses too. And they’re all crap. So stop deceiving yourself.
Are you fucking kidding me, Whole Foods.
This is what they use to wrap their “happy meat”. This is what the industry is doing to make you feel good about yourself when you buy their products. It’s a goddamn lie. This is what most welfarists (who often call themselves “animal rights organizations”) are doing. They’re deceiving you. They’re taking your money in exchange for a clear conscience. They’re turning their backs on animals. This is beyond indecent.
If you truly care about animals, stop funding this. This is the only way.
it = object, thing, resource, commodity, property
while they are currently property under the law (massive injustice), nonhuman animals are sentient beings. they have a subjective awareness. there is someone who values their life and doesn’t want to suffer. quit exploiting them as means to our trivial ends.
Simon Schubert (b.1976, Germany) - Reigen. Synthetic hair, plaster, Polyurthane foam, acrylic, fabric, metal, wood, leather (2009)
Simon Schubert is an artist based in Cologne, Germany. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp. Inspired by Surrealism as well as by Samuel Beckett, Schubert’s works imagine architectural settings, common situations and objects, whereas the materials he uses are either simple or sophisticated - white paper folded or mixed media arrangements. Some of his paper foldings entered the West Collection, Oaks, PA, while the Saatchi Collection, London, owns sculptural works in mixed media. In 2008, Schubert received the ZVAB Phönix Art Award for new-comers.
