I recently went to the Art Institute of Chicago, the best museum in the world.
There I received an answer to a question that’s probably been asked at least once a day for the past 35,000 years:
“But is it art?”
For that is what Kruk said to Kruk II the moment he had finished drawing animals on the wall of his cave. Bloody hell, Kruk.
But yes, hidden in plain view within the African wing of the best museum in the world was a simple answer to a complex question:
“What is art?”
