(The following is the first in a series of articles that should not be taken too seriously. Hope you like them!)
Art is best defined as ‘the place where all can have fun’. By that, I mean that almost anything that has a basic, even minimal concept behind its creation, can be considered as ‘art’. We can argue all day, but that would simply kill my mood, so let me just give you my humble opinion (and you can roast me in the comments).
I will start by saying that not everything should be called ‘art’. I mean, come on people! Even the creators of the ‘Serbian Film’ tried to pass their macabre (and that’s the nice way to put it, trust me) movie off as something deep and meaningful. For those who have never watched it, don’t. It will ruin your immortal souls so much, you will be begging for Horcruxes, just to split the pain. The creators have stated that the film “is a parody of modern politically correct films made in Serbia, which are financially supported by foreign funds”. Uh… let me get this straight: you think your countries movies are too ‘politically correct’… and in order to fight this… you depict child sexual abuse! It’s only natural, isn’t it? (long pause for irony here).
On another topic, what about the Greek person who put a paintbrush in his… you get where he put it. He created a few paintings that way, stating that “the kolografies (greek for ‘anal paintings) are the imprint of the great and terrible agony, for the identification and preservation of the ego into the flow of time.” OH DEAR GODS! REALLY? Be honest, people: it’s just a paintbrush. In your rectum. Think about that for a moment.
Let me be frank: I do not condemn anyone’s actions and/or approaches to a topic (except for you, ‘Serbian Film’ directors, you soul-devouring helldogs). Most of the time, you will hear explanations such as ‘it’s a fight against our corrupt/boring/meaningless/barbaric society’. I can sympathize with your views, really. But, by your logic, a serial dog killer could just say the same thing, so long as they hang the heads on a gallery wall. There are no limits to what ‘art’ is. And it is fine when human decency is challenged from time to time. But, please, stop trying to pour hell’s magma into our souls and eyes.
