What is art and what is not art?
c. 2011 Michael St.Mark

” Art is what you can get away with” – Andy Warhol

‘”The most important thing in art is The Frame. For painting: literally; for other arts: figuratively– because, without this humble appliance, you can’t know where The Art stops and The Real World begins. You have to put a ‘box’ around it because otherwise, what is that shit on the wall?”
Frank Zappa

“I can’t wait to get into a position to make really bad art and get away with it. At the moment if I did certain things people would look at it, consider it and then say ‘f off’. But after a while you can get away with things.” – Damien Hirst

What, on the other hand, is Dada?
Don’t let them fool you into thinking it’s a nonsensical art movement. Far from it.
