Art And Artists
What is art? Does it have purpose? In the moment of creation it has purpose. In those moments of it’s creation the artist may or may not concieve of a purpose for it beyond his immediate one of expression. It may be political, or educational. Or accidental. Or none at all.
This guy, guarding works in a hall at the Pompidou, was being art in real time. How do I know … he was being turned into art by many artists including myself. Of course he didn’t mean to become one of the museums most popular displays. His art was accidental, whilst mine was not.
