How low can the art world stoop? Artstar.tv answers that question by aping reality television. That is pretty fucking low. I’m actually a fan of reality TV, so, nothing against reality TV. I just think of art as being different from entertainment (perhaps naively).
There is a fine line between good Pop Art and a sickening psychophantical homage to the dominant media culture. Perhaps Artstar.tv will stay on the the right side of that line. Perhaps it will be a brilliant critique of the reality TV phenomenon. Perhaps it will subtly explore the nuances of the life of a working artist in NYC or the nuances of different artists’ creative processes.
I doubt it.
It will be just a bunch of desperate artists doing their best to suck-up to the art world honchos as they watch their dignity being stabbed out like a stale cigarette. permanent link to this post
