Hyper Real Modern Art

This is the kind of modern art I respect. I cannot stand walking into a museum and seeing just a canvas on a wall with paint spatter that a 4 year old can accomplish or a freaking piece of fabric simply tacked to the wall.

One of my all-time favorite quotes from the TV show Red Dwarf, right before the lead character gets violently ill...
Ulllp!! Uh, I feel a Jackson Pollack coming on!!!
Don't forget "performance art". I'll take a big shit right in the middle of the street, and claim that I'm actually an artist, because I'm "forcing people to think about the arbitrary social boundaries they erect around basic biological activities. I'm just asking: Why do we let animals do this, but get upset when people do it? It's an example of how little we've really evolved, socially, that we have this instinctively negative reaction to seeing people's bodies."
