During the Cold War the CIA secretly promoted Abstract Expressionism at home and abroad as evidence of the United States’ intellectual freedom and cultural prowess. By exporting modern art—offered as a counter-narrative to Socialist Realism—the country engaged in a complex, not to mention expensive, branding exercise, long before the term “branding” entered common use. The twentieth century strategy of creatin... [more]

Each week we invite our readers to guess which of the juxtaposed images described below is a genuine artwork and which is our probable fake? This week: can you guess which of these arrangements of the marvelous sombrero hat is currently hanging on the wall of a prestigious public gallery? #1 The artist's inventions emerg... [more]

We put art to the test and ask our readers to practice their discerning skills and guess, which is art, and which is not? This week: which one of these tattered tennis shoes is currently on dis...

They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

Art or Not? The question has plagued art since its beginning—what makes art valid? Should the message be understood without the crutch of the PR machine? Every week we ask our readers to take the art world just a little less seriously. This week: which piece of toast has been eaten and which has been displayed in galleries all around the world? #1 The making of art out of readymade objects is nothing new: the idea of somehow magically transforming an object into "high" art by placi...
