Quote of the Day

While researching things to do this summer in and out of The City, I found this line about the “Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective” exhibit at MOMA:
Kippenberg’s stated aim was to radically question the role of the artist in society, but it’s probably fairer to say that he was, at heart, a conservative who keenly felt the constraints of trying to make important art in the late the 20th century. Compared to Modern giants like Matisse and Picasso, he seemed to say, the Postmodern generation was a pack of pygmies.

This can only be topped by an obscure Soul Coughing B-Side, "Come on and dig me, I'm the flying pygmy."
