MoMa

Last week end, David, Maté and myself went to NYC to see the Museum of Modern art. As you probably know, I’m not that much into art (except music, obviously), but the MoMa is pretty famous so we decided to visit it. We started our tour of the six store building right at the top, where the least modern of the modern art was exposed.To be honest, I did not expect to like this but interestingly enough, some paintings really intrigued me and caught my eye. I even recognized some famous ones (Picasso, Matisse and Monet).

But as we went down, the paintings became more and more abstract and meaningless (to me, at least). The problem I see with modern art is that no matter how simple or crappy a painting or a sculpture is, it’s value and therefore its famousness is only determined by the number of people who actually think it’s worth something. This is how a stupid monochrome in blue is sold for millions of dollars. Some painters must have been geniuses, seriously. Another painting was made of building paint, nails, keys and cigaret butts. One could objectively say it’s appallingly hideous. But someone decided one day that this had a special meaning, and that it actually is very expensive :D

Here are some random pictures I took, I leave it to you to find a more profound meaning to all of this. Enjoy.
