well, what about the stuff that you see and say "well, shit, i could have done that!" can that stuff really be considered art?
i guess my main problem is with modern art as opposed to earlier art. there is a painting in the Milwaukee Art Museum that has the word "fool" on it. that's it. i maintain that the "fool" painting is NOT art, but i've been argued on that a ton.
so tell me what you think. what makes something art? do you think that modern art is lacking? have you seen something that makes you go "someone paid more than ten bucks for that?"
