This is Modern Art - Matthew Collings

This picture was taken on the streets of Amsterdam in 2009.
Matthew Collings is a British art critic, broadcaster and author. This is Modern Art was first published in English in 2000.
This is Modern Art was also a six-part TV series, written and presented by Matthew Collings, and broadcast in 1998 on Channel 4.

"The art world is now a slave of mass culture. We have a sound-bite culture and so we have sound-bite art. You look at it, you get it - it's as immediate and as superficial as that."

"Artists don't often know much about writing... but they don't bray so much about writing as writers do about art."
