Sister Wendy on "Piss Christ"

Years ago I saw Sister Wendy giving a most interesting and thought-provoking introduction to art on tv. I had her book on art but carelessly set it aside years ago. Now I have reason to get that book out again, for the gift of introspection and original thought from this amazing woman.

I never thought kindly of "Piss Christ," but Sister Wendy goes against the automatic response and explains it from another point of view. Here is a video of her talking about art, morality, life, and more. It starts out with her comments on "Piss Christ," but there is more after that first minute or so.
