I did see parts of the documentary. Thought is was very interesting and agree
it is important to share this information also, but I try to preface it with a
statement that artists are generally a segment of the population that likes to
take risks and speak out about topics that many times the general public are
uncomfortable with. Several years ago I did a lesson on Warhol with 10th
graders. I showed a video on Warhol that I rented at one of the local video
vendors. I remember it had some of the same imagery and info as the one shown
on "E". It was a bit uncomfortable, but the students seemed "enlightened" by
it and it did create a discussion about the "wierdness" of some artists which
led to other statements about generalizing, etc.

Some of my students in my current classes mentioned seeing it on Sunday and
were very interested in its content and information. A short discussion
followed and an exchange of opinions. I think if the students are mature
enough to process information--which they are bombarded by each night during
the news, MTV and others--it is just another source of information. By any
chance did you catch the one on "Egyptian Mummification (sp?)? They are
exposed to much more than we imagine they are.

Interesting topic.
