Taxi-driver bollocks

Taxi driver bollocks

This was a phrase used by Matthew Collings about John Carey’s book What Good are the Arts

for me the salient point is the social/economic implications of the relative statuses of the art critic and the taxi driver

Adam Gezcy says that the appreciation of art is  a learned thing

Elitist?

Was the taxi driver’s opinion swayed by thinking that the artists were making money in a much easier way than him?

same opinion expressed in (look up)

Is there a genuine issue here.

My tutor said that for art to be rated as art it had to communicate

what then of the glass of water and the acorn on a shelf?

I know it is easy to impress some people by using a big word that they don’t understand.

I have to get to grips with the critique of judgement

‘Kant falls victim to the same problem that touches everyone who tries to make general claims about art: the very concept of art has great historical fluidity so that we can never nail down for all time exactly what it is.’

quote from spark notes

autonomy and self inventing?
