VIDEO: In the Art World, the Joke’s On Us


From the old Batman TV show-the Joker goes conceptual.

An interesting take on a change that was actually occurring in the arts during the 1960s. It can be seen as a prophetic pop culture reflection of the shift from modernism (the goofy abstract painters) to post-modernism-the Joker’s appropriated blank canvas as a work symbolic of “the emptiness of modern life!” Could have come straight out of the Saatchi Gallery.

Here we have the evidence. Conceptual Art is a tool of super-villainy, promoted by establishment useful idiots. Funny because it is so true.

Holy minimalism Batman!

  1. Hope you enjoyed it! I have to disagree with your teacher-just because you say something doesn’t make it real. But that pretty much captures the mindset of the art establishment, with their bluffing reliance on language to try to make up for the lack of tangible artistic achievements.

  2. Saying “art is what you decide it is” is like saying “truth is what you decide it is”: that is only true if you are a megalomaniacal Solipsist. Art, like truth, or reality, is greater than you or your perception of it. You can only control how much or how little handle you have on it, and if you think it is what you decide it is, that is very little indeed.
