    I love, love, love the Michael Jackson/Charles Baudelaire dichotomy artwork by Lorraine O'Grady. Michael as the last modernist, I think it was.

    I appreciate everyone who takes Michael seriously as an artist and who doesn't reduce him to his nose.

    Yes, of course! I think none of the presenting artists do it.

    Through the rooms a guide is walking around to be there for any questions by the visitors: about MJ, the exhibition, all relevant topics... At one moment with some meters distance I had the opportunity to listen to a little debate between a man and the guide (in front of the Todd-Gray-artwork) That man obviously had no knowledge about MJ except the stupid and horrible rumors by the tabloids. And this guide explained to him some facts about the skin, the surgeries, LN. A bit later when she crossed my way I asked her if she is a fan of Michael, but no, she is not. She said she learned about MJ especially for this job. She did this task seriously and quite well - but without the passion we fans have.
    ...Well, after loving me, she said she couldn´t love another...

    I didn't even notice that person. Everyone looked like regular security to me. I do feel though that many artworks focused on Michael's appearance. especially that creepy fake Michael with the moving eyes by a Swiss artist.

    Do you mean this large ugly single portrait which seems to be a collage of several pictures looking like a fantasy drawing used by the police searching for a criminal person? And which moves slightly? Which probably should show MJ - but definitely doesn´t look like MJ? That in fact is absolutely horrible! (I just looked into the catalogue to find the description for it, but couldn´t find it. Obviously it wasn´t shown in the first exhibition in London.) I have no idea what that ´artist´ wanted to express - that exhibit is so embarrassing, I even couldn´t look at it and so I also didn´t read the caption.

    But in my opinion a lot of the presented artists express their serious reflections and emotional experiences with the complete man and artist Michael Jackson.

    That was it. Couldn't have described it better!
