So the question is, drugs or performance art?

This is just really bad performance art. I guess I kind of get what she is trying to say....maybe she is saying something about abortion? Maybe! I just don't know. If you want to make people think about abortion and possibly get your point across for real why don't you just hand out some pamphlets on the subject or something. It might work better than this.

Gerry1of1 I'm okay calling it "art" - it's just bad art.  How do we judge art?  It is certainly a difficult subject, but I think one could safely look at technical skill (the "craft" of it), composition, and content.  

This seems to have little skill, the composition is shoddy, and the content seems to be rather lacking in depth.  Did this make people think?  Question their values?  Stop and appreciate the beauty of something?  Does is have multiple layers of interpretation?

Some might argue that it is all subjective and that one can't judge art as "good" or "bad."  I think those people should be subjected to what everyone else considers bad art until they come to their senses.

faustsshadow   To me, "art" must be good or it is not art. No "bad art".
  If bad things are art then what is the point of having the word "art".  Just say good or bad [insert action here]

Gerry1of1 This is art:



It's a jar of piss with a crucifix in it.

Art is neither good nor bad, it just is.

kalron27   Just because someone creates a new pile of shit and calls himself and artist, does not mean everything he does is art.   It is for history and other people to judge if his work is art or shart.

Gerry1of1 Perfect response Gerry. Art should be decided by the masses. Look at Banksy for instance......if he was painting abortions on the walls of buildings I don't think people would be calling it art.

Gerry1of1 This is just "someone", this is Andres Serrano.

History and other people have already judged his work as "art".

Gerry1of1 That's fair.  Is it the same for "literature"?  Good books are literature, and bad books are bad books?

faustsshadow    Yes, good books are fine literature and bad ones are pulp fiction or just stories, but no one points to Letters to Penthouse and calls it art.
