We are delighted that charges have (finally!) been dropped in the Steve Kurtz case. The case started in May of 2004. While Kurtz was preparing for Critical Art Ensemble’s piece Free Range Grain part of The Interventionists at MASS MoCA, his wife of twenty years, Hope, died in her sleep. When police responded to his 911 call, they noticed a small food-testing lab and petri dishes containing bacteria cultures (part of the scheduled installation, which would have allowed museum visitors to see if their store bought food contained genetically modified (GM) organisms). The FBI was called in, they and cordoned off the house and investigated Kurtz for terrorism. The film Strange Culture was made about the case.
