Kunsten snobber nedad

was the headline on the Kultur page of metroXpress in Copenhagen yesterday
Metroxpress - Kunsten snobber nedad: "Når samtalekøkkenet og tempel-badeværelset er i hus, så skal der ægte kunst på væggene. I weekenden kan man gå på jagt på Copenhagen Art Fair"

Young couples furnish their home with IKEA and ILVA furniture and then look for a bright original art work costing less than 10 000 dk kroner to set the atmosphere just like the cataloguies and glossy magazines.

Over fifties go for smaller pictures to fit amongst what they already have, and the collectors treat art as a competitive sport looking at the artist as a personality as part of the deal.
