The Creative Hitler Act (een allusie op Duchamp’s The Creative Act) gaat over de de kunstenaar als dictator. Jan Fabre bewerkt pagina’s en zinnen uit sprookjesboeken zodat er nieuwe betekenissen ontstaan. De kunstenaar bepaalt als enkeling de taal die hij hanteert. 

 

'Performed 'The Creative Hitler Act' today.

My response to Marcel Duchamp's

legendary lecture 'The Creative Act'.

Confusion prevailed.

The brains went haywire and their

underbelly was emty.

Interpretations went in some horrible directions.

(I permitted it with laughing eyes

and an angry mouth.)'

(Jan Fabre, Milwaukee, 7 November 1980)
