Simon Doonan explains what's wrong with art today. One of his points:
Short attention spans have made art into one quickie sight gag after another. Is that an oversized Tiffany bag? No, it’s a metal sculpture by Jonathan Seliger. Gotcha! Clearly, in our frenetic, technology-obsessed age we have lost the ability to contemplate and are interested only in visual puns.
And just in case you think this is a case of someone yelling about how kids today have no values with their baggy pants and hats on funny, Felix Salmon has been writing about how the art market has gone all sideways for some time.
