Further details
"...by arbitrarily combining content and expression, I want to show that the truthfulness of any expression is politically realized, that it is an expression of political belief and not truth. This, to me, suggests that content realized by pastiche is not a lie, nor is it truth, it is simply, what Jean Francos Lyotard suggests, discourse."
