I hate modern art

There, I said it.

Picasso

actually would AGREE with you.

I gotta locate that quote about how he was happy to con the rich douchebag clients who had no clue what it was all about; the less they understood his works, the MORE they paid, and the MORE he sold.

He also admitted that compared to the Renaissance masters, his and his colleagues' "art" were all a pathetic joke.

but he happily "swindled" the swindlers, laughing all the way to the Bank, and the history books.

I suppose

there are worse things they could have done. I can remember pictures in the media of secret exhibitions of modern art in russia being broken up by bulldozers. I suppose from a propaganda point of view it was a sucessful policy.

yup

"I suppose from a propaganda point of view it was a sucessful policy."

well, they certainly suckered a lot of rich art collectors, as well.

I cannot recall the exact words, but Picasso said something along the lines of how his art IS a joke, compared to the Renaissance masters. then went on to say that he himself has no illusions about it. At least he was being honest, and he went on to explain how the more ridiculous his art and those of his generation got, and the LESS their rich patrons understood their works, the MORE their works were worth, not to mention sold more of them.

Picasso, truly a genius. He "swindled" the swindlers.o)

Propaganda Assets Inventory

"The decision to include culture and art in the US Cold War arsenal was taken as soon as the CIA was founded in 1947. Dismayed at the appeal communism still had for many intellectuals and artists in the West, the new agency set up a division, the Propaganda Assets Inventory, which at its peak could influence more than 800 newspapers, magazines and public information organisations. They joked that it was like a Wurlitzer jukebox: when the CIA pushed a button it could hear whatever tune it wanted playing across the world."

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Op. MockingBird

alive and well.

I wonder how many whom still subscribe to the false L vs. R false paradigm, and are politically active, actually realize that the CIA media propaganda PR MSM Op. MockingBird, STILL continues...

just another in a long line of NWO

shenanigans.
