CM: This poster commemorates the incident at MOMA, New York in 1969, whereby a group of radical artists gathered together to defend the mental-rights upon their artworks. Takis was impelled to draw his artwork out of the exposition. The president of the Museum was dismissed after a few days. A law was voted according to which the artists have the right not to participate in an exposition, should they feel that the way their artworks are exposed is not in accordance with the idea of the artwork. A similar law was voted by the Greek Parliament in 1993 (2121/93). The model posing in the poster is named 'Tuesday'. The issue of Artists' mental-right over their work arose again with an episode in the winter of 2004.
