Ugly Beauty: Appreciating 21st-Century Art (Enhanced DVD)
Is present day modern art devoid of beauty? Is it necessary for the contemporary paintings and sculptures to renounce and instill an ugly vision in order to look innovative and gather the eye balls of the pioneers of the art? Many observers are of this opinion, but renowned British critic Waldemar Januszczak totally opposes this idea. This program attempts to propagate the idea that great art involves capturing the beauty as it always was but it is just that our notion of beauty has undergone a major transformation and we are not searching for it in the desired place. Januszczak expresses that this troubled distraught world needs beauty-conscious, genuine, sincere beauty at this moment, and this need can be satisfied only by the unbending unshakeable artist. The video features interviews of Damien HIrst, Jeff Koons, Tatsuo Miyajima and other popular personalities from the world of art.
