Contemporary art - monetise in search of meaning 2

This week have decided to further explore further the desperate ongoing monetising of contemporary artworks. So for your further consideration a few soiled gems that need serious consideration, if only for their sheer affront;

First off Jeremy Corbin's cultural policy - spending public money will make us all happier he say !

Marina Abramovic needs to make some serious money according to Bloomberg ? Though one can ask exactly what it is that she is selling ?

Mass monetisation of art is debasing aesthetic currency.

Confused art think from Jonathan Jones in the Guardian

Stephen Bailey is worried about artist's estates and squabbling among their heirs

Neo-liberalist capitalism vs contemporary art producers

Utter and Complete Horlicks from the Liverpool Biennale - contradiction in terms

Apparently Graffitti or street art is now somewhat gentrified. Time was when it was criminal behaviour but then in terms of its content it still is.

This art-bollocks is called Churmmin it!

Monetising kitsch - the usual suspects outstanding success.

Empty vessels always make the most noise.

According to Linkedin even Museums are getting in on the act. Art cannot be anything, a door is not art, a chair is not art, a car can be art but usually isn't.

Re-appropriation is what the Chinese call monetising art.

Can the Chinese innovate? well can they?

Stealing other artists work for profit.

Does this question really need asking, seriously ?

Lastly some seriously dumb and stupid assertions from blind techies who assume that they alone know everything.

Why is contemporary art so poor?

If the above have anything at all in common it is the coarseness and stupidity of their use of language. When anyone recourses to this kind of crap jargon they are doing it for a purpose, to confuse and dismay.
