I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

The problem with art these days is that the simplest art is judged to be the most profound. This made sense initially (think 4'33'), but, now, it's been beaten to death many times over.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

"The Freudian racket looks to me as much of a farce as the jumbo thingum of polished wood with a polished hole in the middle which doesn't represent anything except the gaping face of the philistine who is told it is a great sculpture produced by the greatest living caveman"

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

As a professional classical composer, I would like to weigh in on this.

I firmly believe that all art and music should be assessed based on a the combination of objectivist and experiential standards.

To put this into simpler terms, whether a piece of art is good and valuable should be based on the quality of experience it gives to the viewer and listener. Secondly, it should be assessed based on the skill and craftsmanship invested into the work.

Under this criteria, a blank painting or a painting with two colored stripes on it would be considered low quality because it generates little in terms of an artistic experience, and the effort and craftsmanship that went into creating the work is low.

It is a simple way of ranking artistic creation that has met with great resistance in certain artistic circles. The video below (not mine) speaks on this subject and provides more insight.

Either you like it or not, it's that simple.
if others calls it "true art" when you think it's bullsh!it, who is correct, you or them? Both?
The answer is Yes.
It's all in the eyes/ears of the beholder.
Bronto?
Congrats.
