We can discuss a lot about the quality of art, but we don’t have to. When surfing around I came across this rather funny kiosk which checks the quality of your artwork. This is how it works. Just pay a small fee and insert an artwork. The machine will automatically determine the artistic value of it. Very handy for insecure art students or tired critics. I suppose the installation reflects on the question whether any formal institution can decide about the quality of art. An interesting issue in the context of current Dutch culture and art policy discussions. I have no idea when this kiosk is installed and if it is still there. I also don’t know who made it and where it comes from. But it’s a nice idea. I hope it works. At least it would save a lot of work.
