Is modern art rubbish? Robert Florczak certainly thinks so.


In this passionately argued but humungously pompous and highly opinionated (That’s rich. Ed) five minute video Robert Florczak destroys ALL modern art in a sweeping and ridiculous generalisation.

You have to watch it.

My favourite section in the video is the bit where he explains, in triumph, about this question he poses to his graduate art students.

He claims that after they have provided eloquent and highly considered answers he reveals that in fact it is not a Jackson Pollock. It’s a close up of his painting apron.

I don’t believe this story. You know why? Because THIS is a Jackson Pollock painting and it doesn’t look even remotely similar.

A point worth noting is that these students are studying art under Robert Florczak who teaches at Prager University.

Yes, exactly. Prager University?

And here is one of his ‘paintings’.

Nothing particularly bad about it, in fact, quite the opposite, but it is modern art (in that it was created at a point after impressionism) and it couldn’t hold a candle to a Caravagio.

Tarantula!-fixed

Maybe Robert Florczak should be advised to keep his ridiculous generalisations to himself. Or simply stop practicing his art.

  1. I think he was quite clear (at least to me) that not anything created in XX century is a modern art. Of course he could make it more obvious he is talking about some tendencies in art community. And if you count only these, then I am sorry but I agree with him.

  2. complete agree, it is sad to see how ignorant people are about contemporary art… does he know at least the reasons why art is the way it is now? because if he knew that i don’t think he would be saying such ignorant claims
