Narcissism rises in current pop culture because of how wide the market is and how narrow our own personal interests. In that respect alone is how we earned a Donald Trump. Own that shit we only care about ourselves and our needs. Source: Hardin, G., & American Association for the Advancement of Science. (1968). The Tragedy of the Commons.

Art is the residue of an artist. Those that understand the idea push that new boundary. Those that don’t, buy it and pretend using words like “new age” and “edgy.” Pfft. Source: Mather, F.

An artist creates something human, it’s unpopular. An artist creates something popular, its so human. To make art, understand the culture and abandon it but to be successful you should marry it. Be fake. It makes more money. So what if you’re covered in glitter and rapping about the ghetto. Or, the pretty bombshell with guns in a feature film and somehow that’s being feminist. Or the testosterone rage of the newest white comic book hero. Or the newest $300 dollar sneaker sold to kids like drugs. You are all wrong and, I love you for it. Source: Kosuth, J. (1966). Art After Philosophy (1969). Kosuth, Joseph: Art After Philosophy and After. Collected Writings, 1990, 13-32. #art #artist #culture #image #popculture #media #news #film #music #socialmedia #america #merica #comics #fitness #marketing #advertising #brand #stereotypes #judgement #bias #consciousness
