Everyone’s work is equally important.

I just discovered, via Lichtenberg’s perennially-illuminating twitter feed, that Jenny Holzer tweeted* this six hours ago:


Do we have any thoughts or feelings?

I think the statement is particularly intriguing given that Jenny Holzer (or her assistant) doesn’t find anyone important enough to follow on twitter.  

* Please excuse usage of “tweet” as verb.

    important to whom?

    Jenny Holzer can bite me. Your use of ‘clip art in blog’ is astounding and brilliant.

    Her twitter feed blows my mind. It’s sort of like following god.

    Also, I was just reading some Kundera theory book the other day and it happened to be right before I came across Holzer’s tweet, and Kundera is very much of the opposite opinion. On one level, yes, everyone’s work is equally important. But on another level, that is total bullshit. Holzer gets paid a fortune to do her thing, and if her work was not considered more important than almost every other contemporary American artist, this would not be true.
