"A wonderful yarn of fiction" (UPDATED)

Sergio Munoz Sarmiento on MASS MoCA's reply to Büchel’s counterclaims.

UPDATE: More from Sergio here: "the first fact that must be understood is that there was no written agreement between the museum and Büchel, which clearly indicates the availability of a legal structure in which this fiasco could have been avoided. Simply put, what MASS MoCA and Mr. Thompson should have done to protect their monetary investment is what any first year law student learns during the first week of law school. That is, draft an agreement. This is especially true when one of the parties (in this case the museum) is in a higher position of power and in a position to know better."
