In his comment on Trust not truth, Michael points us to Jenny Holzer‘s Truisms, see for instance the long list of truisms or Jenny Holzer’s on-line edition Please Change Beliefs. Many truisms are wonderful examples of self-referential lies or nontrivial trivialities.

Fortunately, people living in Vienna currently can see street posters with texts of Jenny Holzer in the central districts. They are part of the exhibition Jenny Holzer XX which is still shown at the MAK until September 17, 2006.
