Art or not art, that's the question

The price of art

Andrés Rod's insight:

 

What does it make an art work valuable?

 

The more our society falls prey to the economical global crisis, the more hidden fortunes spend obscene amounts of money on pieces of art. Do we observe the rebirth of art, or rather we witness the last plundering of cultural goods? Exhibited, sold, celebrated as top models on a fashion show, art works are no longer a cultural reference for admiration. On the contrary, we contemplate Art through the eyes of money, as a Wall Street runner that could at a glance discover the real value of art. Money or art, what do we admire the most today? Watch these tv shows and articles and prepare your opinion for the debate we'll do in classe.

The money offered by the buyer is merely a token of appreciation that only serves to fulfill the gratification of that mad lover of art. It is the appeasement of the possessor (of the painting) that is truly priceless for which he/she goes to great lengths in terms of time, nerve and wealth spent.
