Seriously, he calls this art?

Before reading his "description", I thought he wanted to express his uneasiness after stepping into a toilet without putting on his shoes/slippers.

The theme of most contemporary art is to communicate via emotion not just on visuals.
I think, it is ...

Well a genuine welcome back and I will try to discuss with you in an open and honest manner  ......     

I did state to seneca in one of my posts that I do think that a lot of contemporary art is considered as good because of, who the artist is and what part of society they appeal to .......

My example was a pile of bricks and a pickled cow .......

I am also against obscene art which includes morally repulsive items to shock and foul language  .....

As you so rightly say, appreciation of art must lie with the commentator ..........

As for the rest of your comments I think that might be better left for when I get time to spend some more time on my thread: China Watch > Rouges Gallery. Ai Weiwei

Using old quotations and interviews so far in that thread I have shown that the numerous web sites that discuss AWW, do so by glossing over the man himself in his formative progression as an artist .......

I feel that that is important  to understand the man and at what point his rise started and in conjunction with what. And not just the sanitised version ........  

This is very difficult work as sometimes the internet is not that good, or any sites which are of interest are buried under a plethora of repeated articles in many other sites  .........



Again welcome back .......

Now if that could only be done with other posters and maybe even Wowsers  .......

Maybe we could enjoy a better forum ........

That piece of artwork was displayed in Brussels and was a big hoax from the artist who claimed this  ...

Did you vote ........  ?

If this is art, than that is art.
