Just saw this vid and I am wondering how to distinguish bullshit from maserpieces...how do I get into modern art that isnt bullshit like mentioned in the vid.
Dont wanna spend too much time on this topic tho since I have other things going on.
Step one: don't listen to that idiot. Educate yourself. Art is all about context. There are paintings of blue squares that sell for millions of dollars. Are people buying it because it's a painting of a blue square? Of course not. When Marcel Duchamp wrote on a urinal and called it art it was because me did it first. He was making a statement. Learn about modern art, Dadaism, futurism, post modern and then make your own judgment.
That guy is a bitch.
OP what the fuck are you talking about? "I want to know how to distinguish the bullshit from the masterpieces" op ya fucking cunt.
Educate yourself first and foremost and don't take that cunts opinion for fact. If you want to get into visual art then start doing some fucking research. Figure out what you're into, if painting then pick up a copy of vitamin p1 or vitamin p2. Find a couple people you're interested in and then look for books on them.
By the sounds of it bough you don't actually give a shit and you just want to get into the 'elitist' group of art admirers that cunt talks about in the video.
Op you're a fucking bastard
If you genuinely want to learn more then just get some books out and do a lot of reading. There's a good programme and a book of the same name, programme is available on YouTube, it's called 'ways of seeing' by John Berger. Well worth a watch.
Also consider getting a subscription to a gallery's magazine. I've got one for 'Tate etc' they've got some nice articles and shit in them, not expensive and nice to read.
Look into independent art magazine too. Here in Ireland there's a couple like 'shower of kunst' and 'critical bastards'.
And last but not least, go to some actual fucking galleries to see some fucking art! If there's an art college near you go take a look around it, go to any exhibitions and whatever else you can. If you do even one of these things you'll have a better fucking idea about art than that cunt in that video.
who is this impotently angry beta white male and why is he so in his feelings about what people should consider art? how are you going to listen to an idiot who thinks art can only be considered on its formal qualities and ignore all historic and social contexts, op? how are you going to listen to an edgelord with videos like "fuck the pope" who thinks sjws are to blame for the state of modern art?
if you really want to learn more about art, go look at some art
this picture compliments that one well I think
