Soviet Easterns



In the early-to-mid 90s, I wrote a series of text-proems based around “the horsehead”, that were somewhere between westerns, ritual, and technology infiltrating the American desert. or something like that. Probably much better in memory than reality....


Momus - mentions in passing Bjorn Noergaard’s horse sacrifice:

The Fluxus Danes killed a horse out on the ice partly as a protest against the pointless human sacrifice then going on in Vietnam, partly to “comment on the way in which museums accumulated our common heritage”

His quote is less in-passing than my extract, as he’s got some small (thankfully) blurry stills, and links to film snippets. As well as the accompaniment music.
