Art critique

Tate Modern is free to enter, so it says, free entry to access the restaurant the cafés and bookshops,, but be in for a surprise, the special corporate art shows aren't free, you won't get much change out of £20 for a ticket, and there's usually more than one show on at the same time. Ironically these shows are supported by corporate donors, International Bank's, multi-Nationals. So if you are ordinary member of the public on a low income and have a large family to support forget it, just visit the other areas of Tate Modern.
Tate Modern markets itself on the community, inclusiveness, community art, art education, workshops, values diversity. family values and accessibility, engages all its citizens, the usuall PC crap...
It receives annual subsidy from the Government “tax payers money”.
In reality its rather exclusive elite club, supported by donors, private galleries, London Auction houses.
“Fine art for the few.”


I wished to go completely outside and to make a symbolic start for my enterprise of regenerating the life of humankind within the body of society and to prepare a positive future in this context.
Joseph Beuys

“You might as well ask an artist to explain his art, or ask a poet to explain his poem. It defeats the purpose. The meaning is only clear thorough the search.”
Rick Riordan

The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.”
Pablo Picasso

As far as I am concerned, a painting speaks for itself. What is the use of giving explanations, when all is said and done? A painter has only one language
Pablo Picasso


Much of modern art is devoted to lowering the threshold of what is terrible. By getting us used to what, formerly, we could not bear to see or hear, because it was too shocking, painful, or embarrassing, art changes morals.
Susan Sontag.

“Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.”
Oscar Wilde

“Paradoxically though it may seem, it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”
Oscar Wilde
