INTRODUCTION
This page, the cover and the following pages are not “Art” butessay, science, discourse. “More Art” is not, by any means, the wayto “detox” ourselves from the
“daily overexposure to Art” 
(DOTA).Because the toxin is not
“bad art” 
but “Art” itself.If anyone (poor naïve dude!) would be tempted to suggest “An-Art” or Dadaism to fight DOTA, no, sorry: It would not work. Our
Wild Capitalis�c Society 
will absorb and co-opt any “an-art” itemwhich is worth it and rapidly transform it into a prized merchandise,into “High Art.”Was the instance of Duchamp not enough to prove it?
Art is habit,” 
and it is hard to believe you guys would be able to copewith life if anyone would exrpate from you all those sick habits.But, your sick habits have turned into worse, into a pathologicaladdicon that has grown too fat and suffocates your capacity of thinking (if you ever actually possessed that gi�).At this point, your only hope is the
“total insula�on from all art” 
(TIFAA). At least, temporarily.We know of the effects of DOTA upon the individual: Apathy,boredom, inclinaon to violence… chronic stupidity. But, we slldon´t know what are the precise effects of TIFAA upon the brainof the human being. This is so because such a radical “Art Detox”treatment never happened before.We reached the me to definitely test the cure to its ulmateconsequences.The country which will assume the risk to endure “ART DETOX 2010”will be Italy. The insgator, the cultural-shaker, who will captain theship will be Viore Baroni. We don´t know what “Art Detox” willbring. Some fear that nothing good will come from it.Fellow arsts out there, be afraid, be very afraid!John MountainDecember 2009
