Suicide would probably be more artistic coming from this crazy hack.

Un suicide élégant est l'oeuvre d'art ultime.

Art is my alternative to suicide.

Ilmarinen: Pattuq: There's an attitude that anything you want to call art becomes art, and that anyone who says otherwise is a terrible, culture-less person.  That said, there are lines that must be drawn.  This is not art, it's a stupid, tasteless attention-grab.

Your first sentence makes more sense than the rest. Since almost a century ago, anything can be art if you want it to. Nobody had the authority to "draw lines" and to say what's the difference between art and "a stupid, tasteless attention-grab".

So if this guy says it's art, that's fine by me. And if he breaks a law doing his art, he gets a fine, which is fine by me.

However noble the Dada movement might have been, my opinion is that it's terrible art compared with things that take a great deal of time and skill to produce.  As for the cock man, I feel it's insulting to other artists who spend years mastering difficult skills for a man to don a costume, act stupid in public, and claim to be in their peer.

Something simply being called art does not make it good, nor does it necessarily make it worth defending.  Again, my opinion, but as a consumer of art my opinion is valid.
