The world, or some parts of it at least

has definitely gone mad.

"Love is in the Bin will come to be seen as one of the most significant artworks of the early 21st Century" says BBC art editor Will Gompertz.

Which strikes me as one of the most pretentious remarks of the early 21st century.

Never could understand Picasso's Guernica.....

It's a simple interpretation of inhumanity during the civil war in the cubist style.

I quite like that one.

I like the surreal stuff from Salvador Dali too. Probably because it's a lot like '70s rock album art.

The relief at the top of this page is similar subject matter to Guernica not in a cubist style, and the 'A Battery Shelled' further down is in a cubist style, which I prefer.

Its eye of the beholder and all that.

The 'Girl with Balloon', shredded or not, is to me disposable mass produced pop art that you'd change when you refresh your living room along with the wallpaper and cushions!

You want proof that the art world is full of pretentious twonks that can talk the most appaling drivel about the most mundane items, check out Marcel Duchamps "Fountain".

I'm fairly sure Duchamp was taking the mick out of the art lovies, only they missed the joke and persisted with their usual Rectal Locution.

At that price I'd have at least expected a cross shredder.

Belatucadrus Taking the %& on that one...
