DAILY ART FIX: Video – From Batman (1967) In the Art World, the Joke’s On Us

Art world links which caught my eye…

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 punny abstract painters) to Postmodernism. The Joker’s appropriated blank canvas, hailed as a work symbolic of “the emptiness of modern life,” could have come straight out of a contemporary art 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!

PS – Cesar Romero was the best Joker, outperforming Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, and Joaquin Phoenix.
