JOHN MILTON IN OUTER SPACE!
Lindall risks becoming everyone’s enemy and getting shot to death. In thought he is avante garde. When he openly described himself as hermeneutic artist , he neutralized the would-be assassin (if there were any). The self-contradictory, absolute, Western value of postmodern cultural relativism he verbally denigrated saved him without losing his elitist niche in contemporary art history in New York, and beyond.
