Quote from: NEON MERCURYthe posers who want to be disturbing and passs their shit off as art should learn how to do it right. learn from lynch/kubrick - thats art
Quote from: cowboykurtiswhat do you think about passolini's salo?
Quote from: RaviThe art world is filled with people who use shock to gain quick attention. If its done just purely for attention I don't consider it art. Piero Manzoni filled 90 cans with his own feces and called it "art," but I call it "90 cans of shit."

Quote from: RaviAre there any examples of acclaimed art (film, photography, whatever) where the artists killed something to make it?
Quote from: GhostboyQuote from: RaviAre there any examples of acclaimed art (film, photography, whatever) where the artists killed something to make it?I don't know how 'acclaimed' it actually is, but Oldboy is pretty popular right now. Granted, that's just one scene out of the whole film.
Quote from: GhostboyThe sheep image I included in my first post was a Hirst piece.
Quote from: cowboykurtiswere they specifically killed for the peices or aquired after their death and used as art? theres obviously a large difference, but in essence, that difference should not be taken into consideration when discussing the content in and of itself . . .I don't think moralitly really has a place in art. If one finds out that a film they embrace and respect was created by an "immoral" person using "immoral" practices to create that said film, it doesn't and shouldn't change or discredit their innitial response to that work.
Quote from: Jeremy BlackmanI completely disagree with all of that. To judge art in a void removed from its creative context is simply ignorant.
Quote from: Jeremy BlackmanI completely disagree with all of that. To judge art in a void removed from its creative context is simply ignorant. It's an artificial barrier.
Quote from: GhostboyI think the only thing that's disagreeable is saying that morality doesn't have a place in art. I think it does.
