On the table in the center of the gallery there are seven sheets of paper, on each one is written one word from the phrase, “I AM THE ARTIST WHO WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD.” I raise, one by one, each sheet above my head, show it to the audience and then tear it up. When the last notion is shown and the last sheet of paper torn up, I take a bat from under the table and start to powerfully hit the gallery walls. After two or three minutes the audience is also equipped with small hammers and joins me in the demolition of the gallery.
