We have a right to give nothing and we wish to suffer nothing

Title maxim dates from 19th century esoteric text „La Clef des grands mysteries” of Elphias Levi (Alphonse Louis Constant), famous french occultist and magician. Author attributes these words to the angels who God has convicted to denunciation and fall into hell.

From translation of Aliester Crolwey:

„This is how a lofty and profound poetry explains the fall of the angels. (...)
"We have a right to give nothing, and we wish to suffer nothing" said the spirits, hating love.
"Remain in your right," answered God, "and let us separate! I and Mine wish to suffer and even to die, to love. It is our duty!"
The fallen angel is then he who, from the beginning, refused to love; he does not love, and that is his whole torture; he does not give, and that is his poverty; he does not suffer, and that is his nothingness; he does not die, and that is his exile.”

Since long time the notion of „fallen angels” is rooted in popculture and counter-culture, in relation to all outsiders, excluded groups and „lost generations”.

LAW AS ART / ART AS LAW
unclassified
We live in the world where invisible or virtual law is much more important than materiality. Even the Law Art competition has his own law, rules and regulations. Nothing is out of law (?)

In 1917 Marcel Duchamp has submitted to exhibition of Society of Independent Artists his first controversial ready-made called „Fountain”, what is dated as the beginning of conceptual art. And this project is kind of post-conceptual ready-made, created by re-sending and exhibit a legal disclamer of REFF as work of art.
