Quote: ‘Dit boekje van Grayson Perry tast de ongeschreven wetten van de kunstwereld en inspireert om meer lol te maken in het museum.’


Now Grayson Perry is a fully paid-up member of the art establishment, he wants to show that any of us can appreciate art. This funny, personal journey through the art world answers the basic questions that might occur to us in an art gallery but that we’re too embarrassed to ask. Questions such as: What is “good” or “bad” art—and does it even matter? Is art still capable of shocking us or have we seen it all before? And what happens if you place a piece of art in a rubbish dump?
