"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

For Art's Sake

And here we are at the end of our week-long celebration (?) of contemporary art. Humor is a quite useable commodity in many pieces, dark british one or bad taste one. Very bad taste one is in many pieces that are usually just plain kitsch. Most of it is not too complicated to obtain, whereas some of it is quite high-end. Leave it to the experts to say which artist they will proclaim as their next superhero, that is if the financial backing is present...

More fun next week, when we go visit the Legion of Honor in Paris, and tour the Panthéon among other things.









"Oh look darling, a Black&Dekker powerdrill installation, how positively avant-garde!"

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
