Art Which Can’t Be Art

When I speak of activities and contexts that don’t suggest art, I don’t mean that an event like brushing my teeth each morning is chosen and then set into a conventional art context, as Duchamp and many others since him have done. That strategy, by which an art-identifying frame (such as a gallery or theater) confers “art value” or “art discourse” on some nonart object, idea, or event, was, in Duchamp’s initial move, sharply ironic. It forced into confrontation a whole bundle of sacred assumptions about creativity, professional skill, individuality, spirituality, modernism, and the presumed value and function of high art itself. Alan Kaprow, in “Art Which Can’t Be Art” (1986)

Mutant #2 on DVblog

“This piece is described as a video arising out of the second session of a “Telematic Performance / Experiment investigating communication and relational dynamics in a dispersed group.” and it’s bewitching.

The pages documenting it bear the motto “Communication is never clean, smooth and transparent” True – and to turn that truth into crystalline & affecting art is a little miracle.” Michael Szpakowski
