art criticism: why it sucks

Filed under: art,guy debord — ABRAXAS @ 8:36 am

“Art criticism is a second-degree spectacle. The critic is someone who makes a spectacle out of his very condition as a spectator – a specialized and therefore ideal spectator, expressing his ideas and feelings about a work in which he does not really participate. He re-presents, restages, his own nonintervention in the spectacle. The weakness of random and largely arbitrary fragmentary judgements concerning spectacles that do not really concern us is imposed upon all of us in many banal discussions in private life. But the art critic makes a show of this kind of weakness, presenting it as exemplary.”

Guy Debord

For A Revolutionary Judgement of Art (1961)
