I watched The Mona Lisa Curse today about contemporary art collecting by Robert Hughes.
Fantastic stuff. Heavy stuff. Makes you think stuff.
Damn that guy had a way with words, and thinking.
From in The New Republic, 1987:
The unexamined life, said Socrates, is not worth living. The memoirs of Julian Schnabel, such as they are, remind one that the converse is also true. The unlived life is not worth examining.
Unfortunately it confirms my now generally dismal view of civilization. When Art is pointless...where does that leave humankind?
