    Default Child to Be Literally Born Into New York Art Scene

    In perhaps the most exciting display of obstetrical performance art since Karen Finley birthed a yam back in the early '80s, Brooklyn-based artist Marni Kotak is letting a gallery audience observe the delivery of her first child.

    The work, entitled "The Birth of Baby X," will turn the Microscope Gallery in Bushwick into a public birthing room, where the artist will stay until the baby arrives, some time in the next five weeks. If you happen to be there for the big moment, well — you're in for a messy treat!
    "I hope that people will see that human life itself is the most profound work of art, and that therefore giving birth, the greatest expression of life, is the highest form of art," she said.

    "I have decided to do this because I want to show people that, as in my previous performances, real life is the best performance art."
    How nice for those people! But what about the kid? Their first conscious perception of the world will be that of a dozen or so hipsters and art cognoscenti contorted faces, all of them holding forth smart phones as if they'd just witnessed the emergence of a tiny, alien being from an open U.F.O. hatch.

    That's enough to fuck a kid up for life.

    That's not art. That's spectacle. Learn the difference, retard.

    There are millions of babies born everyday what makes this one art? Fucking sick of people doing ordinary things and labeling it as something special because of marketing.

    I feel sorry for this kid to be born to such an attention seeking parent, this is sick and sad.

    The title made me think, "Lady Gaga is having a baby?"

    ^ Lady GaGa would have a televised special, she would have a special camera installed in her in the first day of pregnancy. Something like Truman Show. And when the baby is born she will take it to a Mugler shop and say her baby loves Mugler clothes.

    Stupid idea. This chick is being pretentious and self-indulgent. Birth your kids in the privacy of a hospital or birthing center.

    I don't have too much of a problem with it-- but I do secretly hope that she shits herself uncontrollably though.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    Me to.. I had a team of pediatrics watching. I hope they enjoyed the show I worked incredibly hard to make realistic grunting sounds and facial contortions. I'm so talented that it hurts!!
