: Buchel is appealing
his humiliating defeat in court and asking the appeals court to set aside Judge Ponsor's summary judgment against him (Buchel appears to have asked for the summary judgment in the first place), thereby apparently forcing MoCA to keep the tarps over the collection of objects that Christoph Buchel claims is not yet art for the foreseeable future.
The more I see, the more I am convinced that Ed Winkleman's theory that this whole episode is the performance portion of Training Ground for Democracy is correct. What's more "democratic" than abusing the legal system?!
Given the significant infusion of recent support that MoCA has received from Yale and the Clark, I wonder if the urgency to free up the huge gallery 5 is still present. This could go on, and on, and on.......
A friend familiar with the case suggested that this conflict has the potential to go all the way up to the Supreme Court because of the unexplored precedents at play. Wouldn't that be a kicker!
