    shitty art

    sorry people if this topic is not in the right place. feel free to remove or replace it somewere else if you must.

    okay..i got tears in my eyes when i saw this on tv today ( and it wasn't of joy). there is this dutch artist who is going to hold an exhibition soon in amsterdam. his art is about shit...in this exhibition he shows shit of himself, his kids, his wife and other family members. puts them in gelly and presents them as food. he even has a movie of himself eating shit ( no joke )

    not exacly trying to make you guys happy with this but what do you think of this art stuff? you see it a lot nowadays...and while i was busy making nice detailed pictures, the teachers at art school hated my stuff while they really praised things like this...

    ow yeah...and he also asks about 12000 euro for some of his poop food....

    is this really what people like nowadays? me? i hate it. while people like me and most other people on this forum are working their asses of to make nice pretty, quality art, that is pleasant to look at, some guy put some shit on a plate and gets rich with it....seriously....

    ow yeah...and here are some pictures of his..."art" so you guys know what i am talking about....look at it at your own risk.

    so...what are you toughts on modern arts like these nowadays? most of them want to shock people and make them aware of things...but is it really neccessary to do it like this?

    Without talking about whatever artistic value this has... those pictures of it are disgusting, especially when you mentioned that he had eaten some

    yes...they are disgusting. the point that i am trying to make here is...how do you guys feel that a person actually receives a large sum of money to do something like this? ( or subsidy)

    in my opinion it is kinda disturbing....

    Man , I've heard and seen pictures of a lot of "art performance" that looks just like freak shows to me but this is too freaky even for freak shows.

    Personally, I would cut his balls off and stuff them into his mouth for trying to pollute our culture with this shit.

    As long as people pay for it, and give him attention, there will continue to be more shit.

    There are always people who can't enjoy anything unless it's something no one else likes. It's just an extreme form of those kids who won't listen any band that becomes mainstream. Unfortunately if you complain about how disgusting eating feces is you only validate it in their minds.

    I guess it's also possible that there are people who are genuinely into this sort of thing, but I don't think there are enough of them to start their own art show... right?

    Well, he's halfway there, hehe.

    It's been done before (Manzoni). Still, it's disgusting.

    No, if people liked that he'd probably not be doing it. He wants to shock and draw some attention.
    The art people however, (galerists, curators, critics - those who aren't us common folks) are proficient at using Artspeak and can transfer everything into art, including the shittiest shit. Art used to be judged by the broader masses, by people like us, and that's different nowadays.

    Its not really art, this is shit in the literal and artistical sence of the word. I say let ignorant people buy it, (and eat it). Because when all is said and done, its just shit. I have come to expect this of people.
