  1. How old were you in the seventies? This is what shits me about young people, the world never existed before them. (assuming you are young ;-)

    Art and opinion?

    So far nobody has proven that art is anything more than people getting excited over pictures and objects. And with no rhyme or reason, art looks like masturbation. Amazing that it has inspired millions; wow, such a movement with no meaning, significance or universal message?

    It's called "modern art"

    I have no problem with this.

    Art and opinion?

    And do you appreciate modern art or does it fit in with the baret and cosmopolitanism?

    Art and opinion?

    I would have thought that "truth" needn't be subjective. But try to find someone who doesn't believe their own perception is not the truth.

    Again, 'true art' as a term needn't be taken literally. It is just a metaphor for something. If millions of people can claim the existence of God without any evidence, it doesn't mean that the fuzzy notion of 'art' should entitle all and sundry to the same luxury. Please follow the thread. Here is Kidmoon's dictionary quote: I agree that art should be intentional. But it could be accidental too but still the representation of a person. You state that it isn't about arousing emotions but more of a 'resonance', however that explains nothing and it still sounds as though art is any contrived object that is evocative to the individual. That is of course unless you can prove that art evokes a 'resonance' that can not be produced by something that is not art. I'd dare to suggest that many pious people feel the exact emotions. Which means that art can be easily defined right?

    That's why allegory exists. ...the poverty of language.

    FuzzyMerkin, I need to insert more inverted commas. You are taking everything literally.

    Art and opinion?

    I never said what art is. I'm just not satisfied with any notion which states that art is intellectual property or that it is anything that arouses emotion. A dead cat arouses emotion. If I was to surmise, I'd say that art must be something educational, connected with 'truth'-whatever that may be? And being representations of truth, artistic objects must be in a flux. Frankly, the subject is almost impossible to define.

    Art and opinion?

    From the consumerist point of view, or for recognition, this is true. But still, 'reaction' isn't a definition of art. True art is far likely to get ignored. Popularity in either guises of rebellion or conformity appeal to the masses and this is very cheap indeed! Again, you aren’t necessarily talking about art. Expediency maybe?

    Well there you go. Art is anything.

    There is wisdom in your vulgarity!

    Craft: "an art, trade, or occupation requiring special skill, esp. manual skill: the craft of a mason." Or you could be talking about 'art' as well. But it isn't necessarily so black and white.
