I fucking quit
i hate art
"where’s your homework"
Does anyone remember the fairytale “the emperor’s new clothes”?
Because this is basically the exact same story.
Except instead of “only intelligent people can see those clothes” it is “if you don’t see this as art you don’t understand art” and nobody dares to speak up and say “haha look, the emperor is naked”, or in this case “but there is literally nothing, she is just a pretentious liar”. Who can proceed to make literal millions off of people who don’t want to be seen as too dumb to understand art.
This pulls me into another thing of ‘I/my five-year-old could do that’, “OH BUT YOU/THEY DIDNT!” Yes, you or your five-year-old could have made that. But there’s no stock in your name. Independently create almost-identical pieces with a scamming ‘modern artist’, and the ‘artist’ gets all the praise because it’s ‘abstract’ and ‘modern’, whereas you threw paint on a canvas and swished it around with your buttocks. Which is what Scam Artist Bob did, but hey, he’s an artist, amirite?
