"There is a man who stands in an art gallery while a colleague fires bullets into his arm. This is art. There is the lavishly tattoed man who has himself fitted with a crown of thorns. This is art. There is the woman who makes paintings with her vagina. This is art. There are the naked man and woman who charge into each other repeatedly at increasing speeds. This is art, sex and aggression. There is the man in women´s bloody underwear who humps a mountain of hamburger meat. This is art, sex, aggression, cultural criticism and truth. There is the man who drives nails into his penis. This is just truth."

Don DeLillo: The Body Artist
