Beuyscouts love the extraordinary and the absurd
Beuyscouts fight against the death-throes and death-drunkenness. Averse to every clever reticence, they cultivate the curiosity of one who experiences delight even in the most questionable forms of insubordination.
Beuyscouts know that this world of systems has gone to pieces, and that this age that demands cash has organized a bargain sale of godless philosophies. Where bad conscience begins for the vulture capitalist, laughter and mockery begin for the scout.
Beuyscouts know the word and the image are one. Painting, collage, sound-poems, mail art, photography, slogans, sculpture and jokes belong together. The word and the image are crucified.
