Art, I guess

A friend came to Berlin for my last 4 days. He’s very avant garde and we went to a place called the Hamburger Bahnhof. It was, at one time, a train station or something, now it is an art museum on the order of the Musee D’Orsay. Except not at all like it. It is a forum, somehow, for modern art. No hamburgers though.

“The reduced formal language of her mostly large-scale creations may initially recall the works of Charlotte Posenenske or other representatives of this art movement of the last century.”

I have no clue what that means and I don’t even know what to think of this sort of art. It looked like someone had moved out and just left stuff in the rooms. Nothing of any consequence. Just some pieces of crap that didn’t belong to any other things. Debris. I wish I could at least understand what this “art” was, if not fully appreciate it. It’s on the order of anchovies. I wish I liked them but in the meantime I just plain don’t.

At least I didn’t have to taste these things.
